The Husbands

West Coast rock girls Sadie Shaw and Sarah Reed carved themselves a spot among the post-grunge scene. Friends since the eight grade, Shaw and Reed formed the Bonnot Gang with Dale Shaw of Blood Sausage and the Bangs' Maggie Vail. Lookout issued a single on a Decomposition compilation. Before the band could get off the ground, Shaw moved to San Francisco to form On the Take with Carlos Huerta. Reed stayed in Olympia and connected with Mirah for the Drivers. Both stints were short-lived again, for the two gal pals couldn't live without each other. Reed finally packed her bags for California and hooked up with Dale Shaw for the Lies while the other Shaw was tweaking her own goth stylings for the Vanishing. In 2001, the Lies had enough, and Shaw and Reed once again found themselves making beautiful music together. And so the Husbands were born. Along with No Knife/Subtractions ex-pat Nikki Sloate, the Husbands issued Introducing the Sounds Of... on Swami in summer 2003. Three years later, with new drummer Casey Ward in tow, the Husbands issued their second album, There's Nothing I'd Like More Than to See You Dead. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
