The Thigh-Highs met in 2008, at a party in the home of legendary rock journalist John Swenson. It was there that they realized they had a similar taste in hairdos and in rock ‘n’ roll records from the 1960’s. And so … drummer Jimmy Picker, guitarist Gerry Newland and bassist Phil Gordon cobbled together a list of their favorite Power Pop songs and began playing house parties in Brooklyn. By 2009, they’d written enough original songs to venture out of the living rooms and into the Rock Clubs of NYC as well as the recording studio to make their first single record; Alice on the Moon/She’s a Belle. In the Spring of 2010, classically-trained Cathy Cain joined the group, adding piano, organ and harmony vocals to the mix. When Jimmy retired from the band that summer, Dave Keating, a house party alumnus and veteran rock drummer took his place behind the kit, rounding out the current line-up. In 2011, the Thigh-Highs are scheduled to record an LP, are collaborating with Pop groups in England and Australia on a joint record and tour, and will continue to perform here and abroad. Swimming against the tide of the current Brooklyn sound, The Thigh Highs are unrepentantly pop!
