Formed in 1976 in Victoria and later relocating to Vancouver, The Dishrags were the first group to perform at Vancouver's first ever punk rock gig, and may very well be the first all women punk rock group in North America. They performed numerous times in Western Canada and the US, including gigs with The Clash and Ramones, and produced three sets of studio recordings.

Dishrags

The band started out in a family home on the Saanich Peninsula just below Mow's Hill on the Pat Bay Highway. They were originally called Dee Dee and the Dishrags named after Dee Dee Ramone. more info
