Guide to the Ladybugs


Ladybugs Songs and Albums

Beneath the Denim (1965)


Beneath the Denim was a “typical” Ladybugs album, with Ep!phanee’s growing experimentalism, Penny Dreadful’s growing hard rock presence, and Steffie Sin’s expanded song writing. The original cover, which featured Steffie pulling the back of Penny’s pants down below her buttocks, was replaced with a tamer image of the band on stage and the unsold portion of the original print run was papered over with the new picture.
