The Scavengers / Marching Girls
The Scavengers came out of the ATI graphie design course in early 1977 originally a four piece with Mike Lesbian on vocals Johnny was a big 1ggy, Kiss, New York Dolls, Keith Richard fan, and their early sets were allcovers ofthese bands, and early punk classics They used to have regular practice session/parties in Customs Street We were at one when two cops tried to shut it down, before being locked into a broom closet The Scavs and the Reptiles were almost inseparable throughout 1977 but when Zwines opened the Scavs became the resident band They recorded an unreleased single for Polydor In March 1978 Mike Lesbian left and Ronnie took over vocals The new Scavs used to practice on our front lawn in deepest Remuera, before embarking on the longest series of farewell gigs in history This did not go down well with the neighbours In mid 1979 the Scavengers moved to Melbourne where they became the Marching Girls, returning to sellout gigs in early 1980 They also toured NZ with The Birthday Party in 1982, although minus Ronnie Ron had moved to London (from whence he came), changed his name back to Brendan Perry, and signed to 4AD Records as Dead Can Dance, who in 1993 were still recording
