Artwork for the Darlins 45. The name was originally spelled with an apostrophe because it was meant to be the plural of Darlin'. But this spelling looked like bad grammar, so eventually the apostrophe was dropped.

The Superkools at Raji's. Believe it or not, that's Judy on the left.
This was Judy's first electric guitar, which she describes as a Les Paul Junior, single cutaway, 1956 or older.
This Superkools 45 was pressed on clear Coke-bottle colored vinyl.

For this show in San Francisco, Green Day opened for the Creamers.
In the beginning, the buzz was so hot that legendary BBC deejay John Peel sent a personal note asking for a copy of their record.
Here is one of the early singles.
This Christmas single featured two songs on side A, and etched artwork instead of grooves on side B. (Unfortunately, it's impossible to reproduce here.) On the cover are caricatures of the band members. That's "Judy" in the lower left-hand corner.
Here is a set list from the days when Judy was a member.
The Creamers eventually broke up.
