Artist Biography

Crunt, a side-project featuring three luminaries of the US alternative rock scene, was founded in 1994 when Kat Bjelland (b. Katherine Bjelland, 8 December 1963, Salem, Oregon, USA; Babes In Toyland), Russel Siminis (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) and Bjelland’s then-husband Stuart Gray (Lubricated Goat) found themselves with ‘time on their hands’ in Seattle, Washington, USA. Their debut album, released on the hip Texas label Trance Syndicate Records, featured collaborative and individual songwriting with each band member handling vocals at various points. However, the critical reception afforded the project was lukewarm at best and afterwards Bjelland resumed her position at the helm of Babes In Toyland while both of the other members returned to their own projects.
