Undercover Slut are an Industrial rock band from Paris, France formed in October of 1995. Although the group are most often referred to as Industrial, they have been known to mix elements of different music styles into their music, such as; Punk rock, Glam rock and Deathrock.
The band have existed in various forms since 1995. Going through numerous line-up changes with leader O remaining as the only constant member, before arriving at their relatively stable current line-up of; O, 96, Pills, and Fuse. Members of Undercover Slut are only known by their stage names.
During the 1990s, Undercover Slut self-released various E.P.s though their own Hateful Society Production label. Their first demo album "Lipstikk Whore #666" was released only in Japan through Scream.

Before leaving Apokalypse Records the following year, for Free Will Records in July of 2005
Frontman 'O', has cited punk rock bands Sex Pistols and the New York Dolls as an influence on Undercover Slut, this is mirrored in their music, which follows anti-establishment themes. The band are passionate about campaigning for Animal rights, and are said to be devout vegans, they have also played an anti-paedophilia concert.
In interviews 'O' often refers to their hometown as "Psychotic Paris, Fucked-up France". Undercover Slut have toured the United States three times, and are planning to tour there from a fourth time in 2006, tours of the United States are normally promoted as "Amerikkka Tour". A probable Ice Cube reference.
Though the group play predominantly Industrial rock music, they have been covered by Glam media sources, and even had a song released on a Glam compilation for Delinquent Records. This is most likely because of their image, which incorporates heavy use of make-up. Their make-up bares a resemblance to that of the geisha, with striking white foundation topped off with bright red lipstick and black eye make-up.
