Crayons To Perfume Girls of the Week are the Bouffant Bronx Bombshells the Chiffons!


The Chiffons were from the Bronx, and met at James Monroe High School and from 1963-1965 they made a string of wonderful records that are cherished by so many lovers of the girl group sounds. The Chiffons also have some very surprising songs that are lesser known like the crazed Bo-Diddley influenced 'ABC 123' and the unusually atmospheric 'Mystic Voice'.
Starting with a more classic girl group style, here's 'I Have A Boyfriend'.



Crayons to Perfume explores all sides of the Chiffon's in their first three LP's, including 'Nobody Knows What's Going On In My Mind'- which sounds more like it was written with the Shangri-las in mind than the Chiffons. It's not what you really expect from a classic teen girl-group - but then again, the Chiffons could really pull some surprises! Check out this live footage, and then check out this week's show!!



This week's Crayons To Perfume features the Chiffons, a handful of garage girls, solo girls and a back to school serenade!
