Girl Trouble is a garage rock band from Washington, United States, formed in 1983, when three musicians from Tacoma, WA and one from Spokane, WA (Kendall) joined forces.


The band played their first show in 1984, and signed to Olympia's K Records label soon afterwards, on which they released two singles ("Riverbed" and "Old Time Religion") in 1987. One of their recordings, "Gonna Find A Cave" written by Jimmy Radcliffe and Buddy Scott, made an appearance on the Sub Pop 200 compilation alongside tracks by other Washingtonians such as Nirvana and Soundgarden. Various albums followed on different independent labels (the band to this day have never signed to a major label). As a side project, guitarist Kahuna plays in a Sonics tribute band (New Original Sonic Sound), featuring members of Mudhoney and the Young Fresh Fellows. Together with fellow garage enthusiasts the U-Men, Girl Trouble helped re-establish the Pacific Northwest as a premier garage rock region.
