PARTY LIGHTS • BURNING RED SUN
"Donning traditional uniforms of plaid, The Catholic Girls set the music scene on fire in the ’80s. Utilizing Catholicism laced props, they were the first to come out decked in rosary beads, crosses and even a St. Sebastian medallion, using the shock and awe of good girls gone bad long before Madonna saw the light. It is alleged that the Archdiocese of Rhode Island banned the group from playing in his state because he deemed the band sacrilegious with the song, "God Made You For Me," off of their 1982 debut LP. His major discontent was that the song was an ode to god being a woman." -The Aquarian
