History

This lady was a hard rocking Miami, Florida act fronted by the twin Mattioli sisters. The sisters had already gained notoriety for appearing in Playboy Magazine in 1985's Blondes Brunettes Redheads News-stand special. They were helped by producer Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, etc.) and also issued an EP called Snarl 'n Stripes.
Before disbanding the band was re-staffed with a number of new musicians. The twins also relocated to England for a while. This, in reaction to much derision among the general public to the band's approach. Nonetheless the band toured Europe.
The sisters appeared years later with a new band called Cell Mates. Down By 4 was a funk rock act. Paula Mattioli became a studio singer in Los Angeles.
