Katastrophy Wife is a band started by Kat Bjelland and her former husband Glenn Mattson in 1998. Katastrophy Wife currently consists of Kat on vocals and guitar and her boyfriend Adrian Johnson on drums. It has sometimes gone under the name of Bjelland's old band Babes in Toyland, but after facing legal problems with former band members, they are exclusively known as Katastrophy Wife. It was to Kat Bjelland that old friend Courtney Love recently turned when she announced her new, short-lived punk band, Bastard. “It seemed too conceptualised, like she’d spent too much time thinking about how a band should be,” says Kat. "Courtney and I make great music together, there’s a good spark there, but let’s say our personalities would not have been a great mix at that time." Kat is currently writing new songs in her basement.
