Paloma now and then

Drummer Palmolive, best known for her short yet memorable tenures with seminal girl punk (pop) outfits the Slits and the Raincoats, sold her drums and found religion some fifteen years ago. She has lived in virtual anonymity ever since -- in Spain, England and India, among other places.

Little did we know that for the past six years the woman now known as Paloma McLardy has been a happy, church-going resident of Massachusetts, rearing her three children with husband Dave. The biggest surprise of all: she's drumming again.
