- (This page is about the American band. For the electronic artist of the same name, see Fanny(2)).
Fanny was an American all-female band, active in the early 1970s. The name Fanny is a Latin female name, meaning 'free'. However, the name has declined in use, as it is now a slang word referring in British English to a vagina, and in American English, buttocks. They were one of the first notable rock groups to be made up entirely of women, the third to sign with a major label (after Goldie & the Gingerbreads and the Pleasure Seekers), and the first to release an album on a major label (in 1970). They achieved two top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and released five albums.
Links to Peel
Peel played tracks from the group in the early 70's, although it is not known how often he played them, as there are very few tracklistings of the early 70's on the Peel wiki site. It seems by the end of the 70's and beyond, he rarely played them. In the 00's, he played another artist who was also called Fanny, although this one was a musician, who was a former guitarist with the Exploited.
