The Carrie Nations are a fictitious all-girl rock 'n roll trio featured in the 1970 Russ Meyer cult film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. In the film, the band goes to Hollywood in order to try to achieve commercial success, only to get sucked into the seedy underbelly of the entertainment industry. Prior to Hollywood, the band's name was The Kelly Affair, but teen rock mogul Ronnie "Z-Man" Barzell hated the name and changed it without the knowledge or consent of the girls or their manager, Harris.
The line-up of the band consisted of Kelly McNamara on vocals and guitar, Casey Anderson on bass and Petronella "Pet" Danforth on drums. Both Casey and Pet contributed strong backup vocals for Kelly. Their name is an ironic play on the name of temperance advocate Carrie Nation. Supposedly, they hit it big on American radio with their number one hit "In The Long Run", followed by "Look On Up At The Bottom." Other songs include: "Find It," "Come With The Gentle People," and "Sweet Talking Candyman." An additional song titled "Once I Had Love" appeared on the soundtrack, but was not used in the finished cut of the film.
