Absolute Whores is a rock band that seems to favor R-rated names. The band actually started off as the Complete Sluts, but changed its title in 1985. Members of the group are Paul Bullock, known by fans as John Paul Trash, Vaughn Passmore, who calls himself Clint Rude, Greg McConnell, aka Ugly Dick Adonis, and someone simply called Sven.
In 1985, the group released a debut album, Killing an Elvis Song for You. It was followed four years later by a self-titled sophomore release. The band never made it to the big time and tossed in the towel after a few years. Three of the original members, Passmore, McConnell, and Bullock, came back together in 1997 to give it another try, this time calling themselves Stratochief. The band wasn't a threesome though, since they had brought in some new blood to fill a few spots. Stratochief recorded one album before 2000, Turbines for Speed, released in 1998. A year later Greg McConnell died, leaving the group to struggle on without him.
