About Fireparty

Vocalist Amy Pickering, bassist Kate Samworth, guitarist Natalie Avery, and drummer Nicky Thomas were Fire Party, a Washington, D.C.-based band that recorded for Ian MacKaye's Dischord label. Formed in 1986, the quartet released a self-titled six-song EP in 1988 and an album called New Orleans Opera the following year. They broke up at the turn of the decade. Six years after the split, Dischord released a self-titled compilation that combined the two major releases with a 1989 session for the BBC's John Peel and a song off the various-artists State of the Nation album. Valuable members of the D.C. punk community, Fire Party inspired a number of young women from the scene to become musicians and form bands. ~ Andy Kellman
