Led by Meilssa Farris (vocals, guitar) and Margaret McCartney(vocals, guitar), Tuscadero built up a cult following in the indie-rock underground with their first two albums -- The Pink Album (1994) and StepInto My Wiggle Room (1995) -- for the DC-based TeenBeat Records. Elektra Records signed the band in 1996, and the group's major label debutwas a remixed and partially re-recorded version of The Pink Album which appeared later that summer. Tuscadero's first album recordedspecifically for Elektra, My Way or the Highway, was released in the spring of 1998. « hide
