Aberdeen, Washington/San Francisco, California, USA
early 1980's-

the band
the Lorax (Lori Black) (ex-Clown Alley): bass (1988?-1993)
King Buzzo (Buzz Osborne): guitar, vocals
Dale Crover: drums
Kevin Rutmanis: bass
Note: the bottom three are the current lineup, Lorax was in the band for a few years and they've never had any other female members (thus I abdicate responsibility for detailing their many many lineup changes - check out any of the fanpages below for more info than I could ever hope to provide).
Actually, I think a different woman played bass on the Dale portion of their 3x "solo album" set, but she wasn't a permanent member of the band....

Huge amount of info, nicely organized - I love fan pages.

yes indeed
The Lorax really is Shirley Temple's daughter. The world is odd.
