    Meet the Switchblade Kittens

    Well, one male bassist, in addition to the other two. The founder says she was fed up with the egotism of guitarists and banned them from the band. But the cuts I heard sure sounded like a guitar was in there.

    Their album, "Hey Punk, Try Heroine(s)" includes, "All Cheeleaders Die" and "My Dad is a Janitor".

    John - Ain't it the truth? That young and already got a nose for the money!
  4. Nobody has heard of them, yet they got the Aria endorsement. Aria gets to show 3 basses in one band photo. The gimmick is working.
    They got a plug here and now their mugs are plastered in every music mag in the US.

    Multi-color hair dye and animal prints!
    I give up! Oh kitten, put away your switchblade.

    "Ode to Harry Potter"... maybe that's where MY band is going wrong - not enough of our songs are about popular children's books!

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to start writing my King Rollo concept album...

    I think she has been replaced, (boy, these girls are pure commercial i$m$a$g$e!) I've seen pictures of them with a better looking, blondish, drummer that look more recent. That was just one of the few pics I could find that I could paste in the post.
