Jack Off Jill

Jack Off Jill was a Florida Gothic-alternative rock band formed in 1992 by Jessicka Fodera. She initially joined up with Tenni Ah-Cha-Cha, though twelve members rotated through the group in its life.

In fact, Jessicka ran afoul of the adult entertainment laws of Jacksonville, Florida and was arrested in the city in 1994. Despite this, the group bore a greater resemblance to riot grrl groups, with Fodera's voice often child-like but able to reach a high intensity scream in the blink of an eye.
