Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dinah Cancer (born August 28, 1960) is the stage name of Mary Simms. She is a vocalist, best known for her band 45 Grave, one of the founders of the genre of music known as "deathrock." Cancer's first band was Castration Squad, an all women punk band formed by Alice Bag of The Bags. It was in this band that she went by the moniker "Mary Bat-Thing." Cancer was also in Vox Pop and sang backup for Nervous Gender in the 1980s. In 1981, 45 Grave was formed. Bassist Rob Graves had been in The Bags, keyboardist Paul Roessler had played in The Screamers and Nervous Gender, and Don Bolles had drummed for Nervous Gender and The Germs. With the addition of Paul Cutler on guitar, the band found success with the release of their first single "Black Cross" in 1981, and their contributions to the compilation Hell Comes To Your House. They are considered one of the originators of "deathrock" and helped form the sound and aesthetics of what would come to be known as Goth.
