Angel Corpus Christi (aka Andrea Ross) is a San Francisco singer and accordionist, who started recording with guitarist and husband Rich Stim (a former MX-80 Sound). The early works were mainly covers, as documented by self-produced cassettes on debut album I Love New York (Criminal Damage, 1984) and on Accordion Pop Vol I (Stim, 1989).

Wake Up & Cry (Criminal Damage, 1985) and Dim The Lights (ENT, 1987) were the first original albums.

The 80's (ENT, 1989) is an anthology of the decade.

White Courtesy Phone (Almo Sounds, 1995) was her first major recording, although it assembled mainly old songs played anachronistic new wave style (Way Out West, John Cassavetes, Lazy). The album was a delight but bombed commercially, and Ross disappeared again.

Angel Corpus Christi (pseudonimo di Andrea Ross), cantante e fisarmonicista di San Francisco, inizia ad incidere assieme al chitarrista e marito Rich Stim (ex componente degli MX-80 Sound). Le prime produzioni contengono essenzialmente cover, come documentato dalle cassette auto-prodotte relative agli album d'esordio quali I Love New York (Criminal Damage, 1984) ed Accordion Pop Vol I (Stim, 1989).

Wake Up & Cry (Criminal Damage, 1985) e Dim The Lights (ENT, 1987) sono da considerarsi i loro primi album.

La raccolta The 80's (ENT, 1989) contiene i loro successi degli anni ottanta.

White Courtesy Phone (Almo Sounds, 1995) rappresenta la loro migliore incisione, sebbene contenga vecchie canzoni arrangiate secondo uno stile new wave (Way Out West, John Cassavetes, Lazy).

L'album risultò essere una delizia ma commericialmente tempestoso e, in seguito, Ross scomparve di nuovo.
