Other band members were (ex-Beefeater) Frederick E. “Freak” Smith, Jr on guitars, Steve Willett on bass, and Dan Ingram on drums. The lineup changed only slightly when Dan Ingram left shortly after the release of The Loved One to tour with Swervedriver and was replaced by Rand Blackwell.
Strange Boutique’s sound is crafted from a fusion of influences from shoegaze, gothic rock and ethereal music. It is difficult to compare them to another band as their sound is very unique. Musically they sometimes bring to mind early Curve with a similar “shimmering wall of sound” style. However, Monica’s powerful and unique vocal style and heartfelt and poetic lyrics really help to make the band unique.
While never enjoying much commercial success Strange Boutique built up a very loyal fan base and gained the reputation as an excellent live band.
Strange Boutique broke up in 1993, allowing Monica to move to Los Angeles and co-found the band Faith and the Muse.
