Fur Dixon started her music career as a young, wild rock ‘n’ roll bass player for The Whirlybirds, playing on her first 7" single at 21 years of age. Following that, she formed the Hollywood Hillbillys, one of the only bands in history that counted live on-stage chickens amongst their bandmates. Legendary psychobilly band The Cramps became fans of Fur and spirited her away and off to Europe where she became the first bassist of The Cramps live lineup. Known for keeping a solid, hypnotic rhythm, rocking that fur-lined bra and the famous bunny tail, Fur exuded smoldering sexual energy onstage while playing somewhere around 60 shows on the band's Date With Elvis tour.
Once again focusing on creating her own music, Fur fronted her own rock 'n' roll bands throughout the '90s including The Dixons and Blow Up before taking a ten-year sojourn into the Americana and folk music scene. Nowadays she is back to using her God-given, natural-born talent for playing rock ‘n’ roll. Fur has been working with her new band, WTFUKUSHIMA!!, comprised of Dusty Watson (The Sonics) on drums, Paul Roessler (The Screamers, 45 Grave) on keyboards, Dave Provost (Dream Syndicate) on bass, and Bernard Yin (Fuzztones, BellRays,) on lead guitar.
