Shitting Glitter is an American avant-pop band inspired by new wave and electronic rock.[1][2][3] The band was formed in 2001 by Amy Crosby (Vocals), Devin Tait (Synths and Vocals) and Yvonne "Mag" Edwards (guitar and vocals). After multiple lineup changes, Brandon Glen replaced Edwards as the guitar player and the trio released their debut album "Post No Bills" in 2003. 2006 saw the release of "Free Alongside Ship" on Decadrisco Records. The band has been labeled queercore, electroclash, and new wave and has played at many queer and gay festivals and events including Christopher Street West (L.A.'s Gay Pride Festival), Folsom Street Fair, and Reykjavik Gay Pride. They performed their single "Mondo di Corpo" on Q Television Network.

Shitting Glitter's earliest lineup included members of the band Brrn, Billy Rajah and Roman Ratej; the latter went on to be the drummer for the band T.A.T.u.[citation needed] In 2010, the band released its third album, "Open For Business," and announced a new lineup: Crosby and Tait were joined by new guitarist AJ Anderson and drummer Laura Jennings (formerly of the band Ask Alice), and Red Fox on bass (formerly of Messengers from the Sexual Frontier). Devin Tait left the band later in 2010, and the band switched to a harder rock sound. The band released their first EP without Tait, Ladies Things, later in 2010.
