The Belles of Skin City exist solely out of midwestern proportions. Or they just can't afford to leave. 5 grown men make plans for the creation of music. They rent a practice space and buy a van. Said van is destroyed day of purchase by car thief in stolen car. Said practice space is broken into the first month of residence and most equipment is stolen. The Belles finally proceeded to make music with what they have left and what they can piece together. The only thing to do was actually play. Belles of Skin City released their debut EP- Ha Ha Boardroom Think Tank Tantrums on Totally Gross National Product records in the fall of 2005.
