“They sound like my kind of people!” – Claire Sturgess, XFM

“We Start Fires are St. Trinians constructing punk pop experiments to the joyous blare of The Buzzcocks.” – Careless Talk Costs Lives
We were brought together through a shared love of old movies, girly punk and tacky night clubs. We plan to kick some arse, live the dream and encourage girls that you can have a career in music whilst wearing nice clothes, as opposed to none at all.
Debut single 'Strut' b/w 'Your Time' was released on Marquis Cha Cha on 1st August on racy red 7" vinyl, co-inciding with a UK tour as main support to Nine Black Alps. Order the single from www.puregroove.co.uk
When we are not rocking and rolling we also run a brilliant night in Darlington called Club Strut and a music/lit/style ezine called Shoot From The Lip.
