Guide to the Ladybugs

Ladybugs Songs and Albums
UXB (1965)


UXB was an album themed around the Great Science War, though not all songs were devoted to the topic. The cover of UXB pictured the band wearing gas maskes, though Ep!phanee revealed several tattoos in the photo. This set off a new trend of women sporting tattoos. Today the album is most remembered for Ruth De Molay’s first song and only great hit, which the other three Ladybugs worked extensively on with her.
