The New Black

Boyskout’s CD, School of Etiquette arrived like a silent breath of substantiation.

Church of Girl first learned about Boyskout almost two years ago and, excited to shout out to the world about this amazing new band, began airing ‘Back to Bed’ and ‘Secrets’ on Church of Girl Radio.

Boyskout formed in 2001 when singer/guitarist Leslie Satterfield was given an opportunity to do an opening show for The Need – a long time favorite band. The interesting thing is – Boyskout didn’t actually exist yet. She and her band mates had three weeks to prepare for the show. They did it with substantial style – and have been building a dedicated fan base ever since. Boyskout's current line up is still Leslie, plus Zola Goodrich on keyboard/guitar, Piper Lewine on bass and Jesse Rivkin on drums.

In 2003, Boyskout connected with Bay Area producer Jeff Salzman (Killers, Stephen Malkmus) to record their debut album, School of Etiquette. Released in 2004 on Alive Records, the album has received much critical praise, including this gem: “ If some CBGB's Frankenstein had managed, circa 1977, to transplant Patti Smith's sensibility into Blondie's garage-band pop, the result would have sounded something like Boyskout's "School of Etiquette." Mark Jenkins / Washington Post

Synth driven dark pop, Boyskout relies on their beautiful arrangement of powerful guitars, gritty-sexy-strung out vocals and the sometimes crazy-monkey keybords to deliver an addictively dark collection of electro-pop to new wave punk rock sound. We are hungry to hear what comes next for Boyskout.
