Additional Information: 

Pulsallama was an all female, New Wave/Punk, all percussion band from the East Village of New York City that was formed in the early 1980's.  At times, the band consisted of over 10 members including: Ann Magnuson, Wendy Wild, Jean Caffeine, Stacey Elkin, Charlotte Slivka, Katy K, Min Thometz, Judy Streng, Andé Whyland, Dany Johnson, Lori Montana, Kim Davis, April Palmieri, and Diana Lillig.  The band released two singles from the years 1980 to 1982 and were known for their jungle style rhythms and beats as well are their flare for 50's styled cocktail dress attire. 

New Wave and Punk fans flocked to see this band not only for the theatrical stage presence and unique use of props, but also for the percussion style music.  Pulsallama toured predominately on the East Coast and parts of England and a few times opened for the band, Clash. The release of their single, "The Devil Lives in my Husband's Body" gave them a small amount of fame with college and alternative music followers.
