Crunt was an alternative rock band, though was more of a side project, together from 1993 to 1995. The band was formed when all three members were living in Seattle. Kat Bjelland (bassist) and Stuart Gray (guitarist) were married at the time. The band was something of a side project for Bjelland (Babes in Toyland) and drummer Russell Simins (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion). Gray had previously been in Salamander Jim and Lubricated Goat.
