Taking their name from the Avengers heroine, New York's Emma Peel were a trashy punk quintet with a certain twanginess that earned them comparisons to the Geraldine Fibbers. Guitarist Kurt Wolf was the group's best-known member, having spent time with noise-rock icons Pussy Galore and Boss Hog in addition to playing with Foetus and briefly joining Loudspeaker. Finnish-born guitarist Harri Kupiainen and bassist Lizzie Avondet had both been in Piss Factory, which released one album in 1993. Avondet shared lead vocals with Rebecca Gaffney, and the lineup was completed by a drummer known simply as Alba. Their only album was 1995's Play Emma for Me, released on Sympathy for the Record Industry, which featured several songs from a live gig at CBGB's. The group toured in 1996 and sometimes included former Pain Teens singer Bliss Blood, who never recorded with them owing to their imminent breakup.  -Steve Huey, All Music Guide
