Stiletto formed in Melbourne (Australia) in the Autumn of 1976 and earned a reputation as a strong feminist band on the inner-city pub circuit.
By June 1977, Chris Worrall had replaced founder member Janie Conway on guitar and Celeste Howden had replaced Marney Sheehan on bass.
Their sole album Licence to Rage was released in August 1978 with two tracks released as singles; Bluebirds and Goodbye Johnny.
When Stiletto disbanded at the beginning of 1979 vocalist Jane Clifton busied herself with acting (famously playing Margot Gaffney in popular women-behind-bars soap, Prisoner: Cell Block H) and performing as a jazz singer. She also worked as a radio announcer on 3RRR-FM in Melbourne.
