Girls Against Boys

Girls Against Boys

"Girls Against Boys" are an indie rock/post-hardcore band, originally forming in Washington, D.C. in 1988 and currently based in New York City.

The group began as a side project of Eli Janney and Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty. Canty soon left the project and by 1991 Janney had gone on to recruit three former members of D.C. hardcore punk group Soulside—Scott McCloud, Johnny Temple, and Alexis Fleisig—to complete the line-up. Girls Against Boys are perhaps most notable for employing dual bass guitars, a rarity in rock music, and for their second album, ''Venus Luxure No.1 Baby'', a heavy yet nuanced entry into early 1990s post-hardcore.
