The Roches: Three Sides to Every Situation

Geoffrey Himes, Musician, March 1983

AT TIMES, the three Roche sisters seem blissfully oblivious to how the rest of the world operates. Take their clothes. Backstage at Washington's Wax Museum, Maggie Roche wears a green-sequined blouse and garish housewife slacks, while her sister Terre sports black disco pants and a red peasant blouse. Suzzy (rhymes with fuzzy) wears gold glitter basketball shoes, scarlet tights and a short, striped beach dress.
