Geko are similar to Lycia (Ionia CD) from the late 80’s (1988-1989)
Sarah Folkman – vocal, bass, drum machine
Carrie McNinch – guitars
Carrie also did some artwork for the Open IV comp 7″ EP which contains “A Toxic Life” by Geko.
If you haven’t hear GEKO then you are missing out on a great band.
It is amazing how much they sound like an all female version of early Lycia.
You MAY be able to get their CD and 7″ EP on EBAY.
