The New York-based band the Prissteens is made up of guitarist and vocalist Tina Canellas, bassist and vocalist Lori Yorkman, guitarist and vocalist Leslie Day, and one lone guy, Joe Vincent on drums. Vincent is a former member of the punk group the Devil Dogs, also from New York. Canellas soon left the band and was replaced by bassist Jon Canellas.

The Prissteens singed with Almo Sound Records in the late '90s and began recorded a debut album. They had the help of producer Richard Gottehrer who has worked with the Go-Go's and Blondie. The debut album, Scandal, Controversy & Romance, hit the store shelves in 1998. It holds party tracks like "The Hound," "Let Me Run Wild," and "What's She Got." Some of the tunes have been compared to those from groups like the Kinks, the Runaways, and the Ramones. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi
