Killer Pussy was founded in Phoenix in early 1980 and originally featured singers Lucy LaMode and Les a Go Go, guitarist Gary Russel, David (Dash Assault) Webb on bass, and John E. Precious on drums. After two shows, Les left the band, and a year later, Robert X Planet became a part of the group as keyboardist. Dash Assault married Les a Go Go in 1983 and left the band, and Dale “B. Sari” Smith took his place in the band as bassist. …. Notorious for its onstage theatrics and costuming, the group is best known for the songs, Teenage Enema Nurses (in Bondage), which was released in EP 1982, followed by Pepperoni Ice Cream, a song inspired by the extreme body odor of an ex of Gary Russel’s. …. Though the band never officially broke up, their last performance took place in 1991 in Tempe at the Valley Art Theater. Dale “B. Sari” Smith and Robert Planet still reside in the Phoenix area, and Lucy LaMode lives in Austin Texas with her family and has been involved in theater and acting for over 20 years. Robert X Planet has been a calendar editor and is currently a drama critic for the Phoenix New Times as well as being involved in design, directing, and acting in local theater productions. Dale Smith is a part of the group Ally and the Pinheadz. John Vivier (John R. Precious) passed away in 1983 shortly after recording with the band on the album Bikini Wax. Vanya Hautamauki, who replaced John as drummer, is currently a part of the blues band the Rocket 88s based out of Phoenix.
