The Au Pairs were a British post-punk band that formed in Birmingham in 1978 and continued until 1983. They produced two studio albums and
three singles. Their songs were said to have "contempt for the cliches of contemporary sexual politics" and their music has been compared to
the Gang of Four and the Young Marble Giants. The band was led by Lesley Woods, who was once described as "one of the most striking women
in British rock".
