Necking became a band before playing a note of music together. The origin story of the Vancouver-based powerhouse post-punk quartet starts at a party where all four members met for the first time and began boasting untruths about their group’s musical accomplishments. Following a series of fake names including Britney Bitch and Four White Guys, they picked up instruments for real, quickly earning a rep for their live wire performances and no-holds-barred humour. This continues on the band’s debut LP, Cut Your Teeth, a collection of songs about dating woes, cybersex, and self-improvement. Ultimately focused on the friendship shared by the women of Necking, their main motivation is making themselves laugh.
