The band first debuted in San Francisco in 1989 for Ginger Coyote’s birthday. She was, at the time, Editor of Punk Globe magazine. It wasn’t long afterward that Joey Ramone invited them to partake in his “Circus of the Perverse” – where they played with Debbie Harry, Bebe Buell, Ronnie Spector, Lemmy and The Ramones! Their first release came out on Jello Biafra’s label, Alternative Tentacles, and the list of affiliations and appearances sort of explodes from there – from movie appearances, soundtracks, television shows, magazine interviews, Mad TV, and so many more, it’s sort of overwhelming.

While "White Trash" is often a deragatory term associated with close-mindedness and stupidity are, The Debutantes are actually keen observers of popular culture. They sing about Susan Lucci, Newt Gingrich and the Kennedys' carnal abilities. Musicially, The White Trash Debutantes are straight up, solid, kick ass punk rock or "slutpunk" and they like to refer to it. They are influenced by classic late 70’s/early 80’s punk, and express punk’s primal aggression with a flair of melodic pop.

The Debs have quietly built themselves a large underground following in the California punk scene and have toured the greater U.S., Canada, Japan and Mexico, playing with such notables as Green Day, the Ramones, Rancid, The Offspring, Zeke, Shonen Knife, and L7. Their live shows are incredibly entertaining so don't miss em!!!
