    The two of them have been through many line-up changes and mainly use session musicians when recording.
    Amphlett received a Best Supporting Actress nomination from the Australian Film Institute for her performance in 'Monkey Grip.'
    One record company offered to fix Amphlett's protruding teeth, but she refused, stating 'I am what I am.'

    The video for 'I Touch Myself' was controversial, with Amphlett tied-up in fishnet stockings.
