The Swirlies

Originally a Go-Go's cover band called Raspberry Bang, the Swirlies formed in Boston in 1990. Along with Kudgel and Fat Day, the band -- guitarist/singer Damon Tuntunjian, singer/guitarist Seana Carmody, bassist Andy Bernick, and drummer Ben Drucker -- was a part of the city's chimp rock scene, which pitted dreamy, guitar-based pop against noisy, experimental tendencies.
