JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS by David Cutler
In the following years bassist and co-songwriter Valerie Smith slipped into obscurity after a number of failed projects which garnered some critical attention but were largely ignored by the record-buying public. For her part, Melody Valentine traded three cord grunge sounds for radio hooks and her already apparent pop sensibilities, forming the Mew Fighters, one of the more successful acts of the latter half of the decade.
Josie is survived by fiance Alan Mayberry and cat Francis Bean.
