Peer Pressure was a Santa Cruz band (1980 - 1981) involving Kathy McVey (bass, sax, vox), Rosemary Gilman (guitar, vox) and Patricia Gleseke (drums).

Kathy and Rosemary had sat in on some Waybacks' shows and then decided to start their own band. They were "driving along and there was this girl standing there at the stoplight with drumsticks in her pocket, and we go 'Hey, you wanna be in a rock band?'" The girl was Patricia.

John Peel played their song "I'm Adult" so often on his radio show that they received fan mail from England.


  • A 7" with "I'm Adult" backed with "Funky Politician" on Lima Bean Records (released May 30, 1981)
