During those sessions, D’arcy had to sneak out of her house just to attend band practice. They had a lot of help from Joe Shanahan, the manager of the Cabaret Metro, who booked them with many gigs.“I never could have withstood being in a band without training from growing up with my sisters.It started when I was born – my older sister was very jealous.(D’arcy Wretzky and Billy Corgan) “[It was at a] local Chicago goth club called The Avalon.
They played that Bryan Ferry song at Avalon every night at the close, when they were kicking everyone out.
D’arcy has also contributed vocals for Filter’s ‘Take A Picture’ and ‘Cancer’.’ “In high school, I was buddies with guys. But I was always interested in some man I didn’t know at all. Kerry and I knew each other from the studio [he’s a drummer]; then he came on tour with us [for the group’s first album, Gish] as a producer.
