The group started as a duo. Drummer Sharon Heather and guitarist/singer Christy Kane had an album worth of songs in a matter of months but no bass player could be found. They asked their friend Sean Yseult (White Zombie, Fabulous Monsters, Rock City Morgue) to stand in until they could find a permanent member. Sean not only stood in contributing memorable bass lines for all the songs they had finished, but she also recorded their demo with them. Next on bass was Katie Cambell (Fabulous Monsters), she stayed only a couple months before being recruited as the new bass player for Nashville Pussy.
Weeks later, they found a permanent member in Jennifer K. With the new steady line up the HCG's started touring the South. On their first out of town gig Pete Knapp (owner of Shut Eye Records) invited them to put their song 'Sonic' on his label's Buzzlighter compilation which was released in September. This compilation went to over 400 college radio stations nationwide. Next the Hazard County Girls went into the Truck Farm Recording Studio in New Orleans to record their much anticipated record titled 'Never No More'. This record was produced by none other than Daniel Rey (Ramones, Misfits, White Zombie). Listening to the record it is obvious why the Hazard County Girls have become one of New Orleans' favorite rock and roll bands.
