The rare and unique all-Female reggae band in Jamaica called "PEP", released a few tunes between 1985 and 1986 on the High Heel label. All their songs were produced by Fab 5 member Harold Bailey except the last one “Hoity Toity” produced by guitar member Susan Trewick. 

“Crisis” was released in january 1985. This is a song about the 80’s crisis that mash up all over the world. Only a few boxes of copies were pressed back then by Harold Bailey. He tried to help the all-Female band but after a few releases, he finally realized selling were not good enough. 

Guitar player Susan had more experience so the other women in the band (June, Virginia, Marcia, Winsome and Sandy) called her "Super Cool Sue" because she was not nervous as they were about performing live. When Harold Bailey stopped his collaboration with the band, Susan tried to continu the work. She produced “Hoity Toity” and renamed the group W.O.W. for “Works Of Women” in september 1986. Early 1987, Susan left Jamaica to United States with her family so the group split.
