The Mo-Dettes were an all-female post-punk band from London who formed in 1979. Founder member Kate Korris was an original member of The Slits and briefly a member of The Raincoats. Swiss-born lead singer Ramona Carlier's heavily-accented vocals were a feature of the band. The group's sole album, 'The Story So Far' was released by Deram in 1980.
