L7 was formed by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner in Los Angeles in 1985 and are often considered part of the grunge movement. The punk rock duo were joined by Jennifer Finch on bass guitar and Roy Koutsky on drums, Koutsky left shortly after and was briefly replaced by Anne Anderson in 1988. After Anderson quit the band, Demetra “Dee” Plakas became the permanent drummer. Their 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy, produced by Butch Vig, was featured in Rolling Stone’s 1999 list of “Essential Recordings of the 1990s”, and was their most successful release. The 1992 single, “Pretend We’re Dead” spent 13 weeks on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, reached a high of #8 and made #21 in the UK Singles Chart. Their fourth album, Hungry For Stink, was released in the summer of 1994 and coincided with their appearance at Lollapalooza with other notable acts of the era such as The Smashing Pumpkins and The Breeders. Finch left the band during the recording of their next album. Sparks and

Greta Brinkman played bass on The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum after which Gail Greenwood of Belly became the band’s full time bass player. The band appeared in John Waters’ 1994 film Serial Mom, under the name Camel Lips. Their songs have been featured on the soundtracks to films including Natural Born Killers, Point Of No Return and Pet Sematary Two. They have toured with and opened for artists including Bad Religion, GWAR, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, Rollins Band, Beastie Boys, Pearl Jam, Marilyn Manson, the Offspring and Ministry. By 2001 the band stopped touring and they were on indefinite hiatus. They reunited in 2014, and toured Europe and North America in 2015.
