It's an age-old story, really: Wonderful girl meets adorable girl. Girls fall in
love at first sight. Girls don matching hipster garb, shellac their hair into
matching asymmetrical platinum faux-hawks and form a hip-hop duo. The self-described "gaysymetrical superheroes" (get it? nudge, nudge) met when Cindy Wonderful applied for a job at an Olympia, Wash., video store where Sarah Adorable was the assistant manager. Several gajillion revolutions of Peaches' oeuvre and a trip to the local punk hairdresser later, Wonderful and Adorable were gigging the Northwest as Scream Club, a glammy, raunchy electro-hop duo that spit rhymes about classism, bell hooks and getting laid with a flow as smooth and cool as the gel in their hair and polished, professional hip-hop beats. Two full-length albums (in 2005 and 2006), a label of their own (Crunks Not Dead) and live shows featuring the duo alternately making out and wrestling earned Scream Club not only a devoted scenester following, but also some unlikely fans, including Yoko Ono and the hip-hop magazine XXL.
