History
Melbourne band The Plums had its basis in the quaintly named Jack and the Beanstalk. That band issued one independent single, `Evolution', on its own Beanstalk imprint (1991) before evolving into The Plums. Taking a cue from US bands like The Pixies, The Plums mixed strident guitar riffs with melodic pop roots. Kennedy was the band's focal point with her tough-but-graceful presence, opinionated views and emotion-charged, if imperfect, vocals.

The band issued two CD EPs on the Temptation label (through Mushroom Distribution Ser- vices), Au Revoir Sex Kitten (November 1992) and Read All Over (May 1993), before signing to Mushroom's White subsidiary. The Plums supported US visitors Throwing Muses, Belly and Juliana Hatfield, then issued their acclaimed debut, full-length album Gun (April 1994). It produced the CD single `Find this Anywhere' (May). The Plums issued a new CD EP, `Heavenly', in June 1995, but two months later Kennedy had linked up with Barry Palmer in deadstar.
