Honey Tongue were an alternative rock band formed by former member of The Perfect Disaster and The Breeders Josephine Wiggs (vocals, guitar, cello) and The Perfect Disaster/Spacemen 3/Spiritualized drummer Jon Mattock. The band later recorded as The Josephine Wiggs Experience.


The band was initially intended as a one-off project while Wiggs and Mattock continued with their other bands.[1] Wiggs had met Mattock when she added cello to tracks for Spacemen 3's Playing With Fire album, and Mattock had played drums on The Perfect Disaster's Heaven Scent album.[1][2] The duo formed Honey Tongue in April 1991 and began recording demos.[2] Nude Nudes was recorded in December 1991 with Audu Obaje (formerly a member of Collapse) producing, and released in 1992, which was their only album released as Honey Tongue, although the same line-up (with Obaje also on guitar) released the Bon-Bon Lifestyle album as The Josephine Wiggs Experience in 1996.[1]
