And it goes on:

In 2003 we played more local gigs at Berlin Clubs "Wild at Heart" and "Mad&Crazy". We also played at Tattoo Festivals in Leipzig and Potsdam. Recording continued, too. We were looking for a record label to release our recordings.

August 2002 a quick trip back to the UK, where Mark Pennington (The Caravans) produced her first solo recording.

Later that month, back in Berlin at notorious Franken Bar in Kreuzberg she eventually met slap-bass-player Rob of the Rawheads (also former bassist with Mad Sin).

They then recruited the recently found Mr Shadow aka Dave Crome from Philadelphia on sticks. He already worked with Bo Diddley, Del Shannon, Danny & the Juniors, The Shirelles, Dick Clark and the legendary D.J. Wolfman Jack, just to name a few.

Following successful Berlin gigs, the band did some recording at their private studio - featuring the acclaimed original "I let the Devil in" - for sale by request.

The music has been described as " a powerful combination of cool, rockin´ rythms, dark agressive lyrics and incredibly catchy choruses - not to be missed"

In Germany she continued to play now and again with UK party-band Death Valley Surfers and searched for far and wide for the right guys to play in her own project.

Brixton, 2000: Bored and constrained by the sterile, DJ dominated music scene in her native London Kathy moved to Berlin with a few Link Wray CD´s, a beat-up SG and a dream of creating a 100% live, rockin´, power trio.
