COOLIES first got together in high school with a common love for the likes of Patti Smith, Bikini Kill and X-Ray Spex before moving to Auckland and establishing themselves with prominent support slots with the Beastie Boys, Cat Power and Rancid, as well as supporting kill rock stars band Bangs on their NZ tour - all before the girls had finished high school.

For a good chunk of the last decade, Stefan Neville (aka Pumice) was their drummer. This line-up cut a great LP 'Master' for Chapter Music and an even more dastardly EP 'Punk Is Bread' on Epic Sweep. Most recently they presented 'Kaka', gruntily produced by Neville on Feeding Tube Records. The tunes on 'Kaka' were recorded in a couple of long jam sessions, then teased and smooshed into shape over a year. The results, much like their live shows, are both propulsively fetching and utterly fried.
