Athens, OH's Geraldine plays bluesy punk inspired by Howlin' Wolf, the Stones, the Who, and New York punk from the '70s. The group began releasing singles on the Anyway/Revolver imprint, including 1995's self-titled 7", 1996's Cotton, and 1997's K-Tel Whore. The band also appeared at trash-rock festivals across the U.S. and toured with the likes of Bantam Rooster, the Go, the White Stripes, Royal Trux, Quadrajets, the Humpers, and Nashville Pussy. Geraldine signed to the neo-garage/punk label Orange and released their debut album Pure Bastard Rock in 2001. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
