Hollywood's Texas Terri & the Stiff Ones played sleazy, street-strutting rock & roll to violate your ears and mind. Frontwoman and ex-stripper Terri Laird recalls Iggy Pop, Lux Interior of the Cramps, and Wendy O. Williams rolled into one with her half-scream, half-growl vocals and infamous stage antics — the flame-haired singer frequently performs wearing only electrical tape. Terri Laird moved out to Los Angeles from Texas in 1985 and started her trash rock band the Killer Crows. After the group broke up, Texas Terri joined forces with Don "Demon Boy" Cilurso to create what would become Texas Terri & the Stiff Ones. The band released its debut, Eat S**t!, in 1998. In 1999, they were named Most Psychotic Band and Best Hollywood Band by Rock City News, and Laird was dubbed Best Female Singer by Flipside magazine. In 2000, The Los Angeles Weekly gave the group their Best Punk Band award. Texas Terri & the Stiff Ones' debut album was subsequently re-released as Eat S**t + 1 (with a bonus track) and Eat S**t! + 4 (with four bonus tracks). After Cilurso left the band, Texas Terri renamed the outfit Texas Terri Bomb!, which released Your Lips...My Ass! in 2004.
