TYPHOON was the first female goth band from the mid eighties in San Francisco, started by Klara Lux (BINKY, Brood & Lucy Stoners) and Killer Melford (Strong Silent Types, Nervous Gender & Dutchess DeSade). Their unique sound bordered on dark trance/ritual core. Ephemeral & circus-like stage atmospheres were achieved by volatile means of meat-coated belly dancers, live leashed pigs & dangling hotdogs off the ceiling, all of which emerged from colored clouds of frequently toxic & defective smoke machines. Live shows became by default unpredictably haphazard & unrepeatable performances, peppered with inspired fortunate serial accidents.
