Edie and the Eggs, billed here as the Incredible Edible Eggs, a were all female punk-exploitation band put together to showcase Edith Massey, star of several John Waters movies.
The band’s name related to Massey’s role of the Egg Lady in John Water’s classic Pink Flamingoes.
Waters approached local Baltimore guitarist Ann Collier with the idea. She drafted in drummer Gina Schock (later Go-Go’s) Suzan Wirth (bass) as the rhythm section.
Following New York gigs, including Max’s Kansas City & CBGBs the band was approached to come to LA for sold-out dates at the Nuart Theatre on Santa Monica BLVD.
Later they records a one off single, released in 1982, which can be found here. Edith Massey – Big Girls Don’t Cry / Punks, Get Off The Grass 7″ inch Picture Disc 45rpm : John Waters interest
