Elastica were an alt/punk/indie band whose fame peaked in the mid 90s, with the release of their self titled (fastest selling ever) debut album, which entered the charts at No 1. Justine Frischmann provided the understated, conversational style vocals, over the bands hook heavy songs. Elastica found themselves at the centre of a controversy when several bands sued them successfully for plagarism, including post punk band Wire and the Stranglers. Elastica songs feature heavily distorted guitars playing catchy riffs, close harmony backing vocals and featured many female musicians in the original and subsequent line-ups.
