Bio: In October 2001, Annie, Susy, Sturgeon and Lane (Monkey Hustle) Pederson started practicing in Lane's basement in Midway St. Paul, MN. Annie told a customer at her coffee shop job, that she had started playing in a band, and he said that the band should be called The Soviettes, and that was that...no political reasons, just a name. We recorded our 1st 7" , TCCP, with Mike Wedel in his basement a couple months later. Our friend Max put it on his label, Pop Riot Records. Lane played drums on TCCP only. Lane being busy with school and in Dillinger Four we looked for a new drummer. Annie brought in Danny, who was a friend of hers. Danny fit. A split EP with Max's band, The Valentines, was next. LP I and LP II were both recorded by Jacques Wait, and put out by Adeline Records. LP III was also recorded by our great friend Jacques, and put out by Fat Wreckchords. A split 7" with the japanese band The Havenots was put out by Nice and Neat Records, "Don't Say No" 7 " was on Dirtnap and "Rollergirls" 7 " on Fat. We toured extensively throughout the U.S. during the summers, as Sturgeon was a teacher. Our last tour started in September 2005 and took us to all 50 states in 3 months. When we returned from that tour Danny decided he didn't want to tour anymore and wanted to pursue his career path. 2 weeks later Susy moved to San Pedro, CA. Though it was discussed that we might still play shows here and there, time passed and without touring and all band members, a permanent hiatus just happened. Danny and Annie played in Awesome Snakes, Annie now plays in The God Damn Doo Wop Band, Sturgeon plays in The Gateway District, and Susy plays in That's Incredible. Check our new bands on Myspace! Thanks to everyone who let us sleep on their floors, came to our shows and partied. word. p.s. We're playing some shows this fall. HOLLA!
