Little Annie Bandez (also Little Annie Anxiety Bandez or Annie Anxiety) is a singer, painter, and stage actor, perhaps most widely known for her vampish performance of the song Things Happen, with the band Coil. She has recorded extensively with vanguard figures of late twentieth century music such as rock musician Kid Congo Powers, dub stalwart Adrian Sherwood, punk/experimental band Crass, and experimental/electronica band Coil, an entity that had its origins in the first Industrial band, Throbbing Gristle.
Little Annie currently performs in New York City, and has released solo albums since the 1980s. Her most recent album, Songs from the Coalmine Canary is co-produced by Antony Hegarty, and Joe Budenholzer, of Backworld.
Little Annie is a painter and exhibits regularly. Her naive, folkish style is figurative and often depicts harmonious communities in extensive, sometimes assaulted cityscapes. One series of her paintings was started as "God and Science" and as it was at the time of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, the painter incorporated symbolism from those events into her paintings.
