Howie & the Hotknives are two chicks and one dick that formed in 2004 in Portland, OR. They put out two 7" records on Felony Fidelity records outta Portland and over the next five years they melted faces and broke hearts with their own brand of garage/pop/punk stylings. They recorded their debut full length record Tough Love just before their breakup in 2009, which is posthumously released on Portland's Hovercraft Records.
