The origins of the band name The Leather Nun

By Jonas Almquist

On and off we get questions on the origins of band name The Leather Nun. Myth busting is fun and quite OK after 40 yrs. Pointing in the direction of a gay stripper in London and/or a legendary underground comic book, was quite fitting when building the mythology around a young, budding rockband that wanted to go places, stir up some noise and whip some asses musically along the way. The truth behind the name was less glamorous, but still a tounge in cheek reference but to the first UK punk single – ‘New Rose’ by The Damned. Wish you all a pleasant Wednesday. Stay safe! ✌️😎
