    ....in a band like this someday.

    I don't know how I missed it. Betty Blowtorch's first album has been out since June.

    Power trio line-up, all women ->
    - Bianca Butthole on bass (with the "Elton Sucks" sticker)
    - Sharon Needles on guitar
    - Judy Molish on drums


    They remind me of L7, except the song titles are catchier, e.g., "Size Queen" (yep, it's about us guys; with Ice-T helping out on vocals), "I Wanna Be Your Sucker," Shut Up and"...(fornicate)", "I'm Ugly and I Don't Know Why" and other tender ballads.

    Jason Oldstead and Broken Angel miss another opportunity. ;)

  2. if you think THAT's bad.. woah :D

    you've never heard of the Brittish band " Rockbitch " ??

    that's 7 lesbian chicks that perform live porn on stage during their gigs.

    then after every gig they throw this golden condom in the audience, and whoever catches it, can come backstage for a blo... uhm.. " Reward " :D

    check this site : http://www.rockbitch.co.uk/

    please keep in mind.. i am aware of the American laws.. so.. PLEASE DON'T CLICK ON THE LINK UNLESS YOU'RE 18 OR OLDER thank you.

    Whoo-hoo! All-Girrrl bands! :D

    The Pandoras "6 Times a Day"...I think one of these
    poor gals had an ulcer or spastic colon, and the song's
    about when her gastroenterologist told her to have
    6 (small meals) a Day instead of 3 big `uns :( .

    Allo - Thanks for the heads-up. Ididn't think Blowtorch was "bad." I think they're funny.

    I see a difference. Betty Blowtorch has humor as a big element. The other is just playing the tired old porn card.
  6. Hehe, they were in Rolling Stone. Whatta buncha weirdos. I mean, who on earth would have a last name like Butthole? :D

    I, being a woman, personally love to see all chic groups come together and play good music. I origionally was gonna start an all girl band. You wouldn't believe how scarce chic musicians are. All I had was a drummer and she's moving. so now I play with the guys. The only chic musician around where I live that plays in a band!! Kick ass!!!
  9. The funniest thing about Rockbitch is their hypocrisy and fakeness. They are posing as non-posers, if you know what I mean.

    Number 1. Girls:

    Paganism is NOT occultism. What you seem to believe in is Satanism and/or black witchcraft. Paganism is a natural celebration of nature, sex is not a part of it. Closer to Wicca than anything.

    Number 2.:

    If you're so frivolous for free speech, how come anyone who doesn't want to sleep with groupies, take part in orgies, or have one night stands is wrong and not worth listening to? Apparently, we've all been lied to ladies and gentleman, cos we're animals and therefore not supposed to be monogamous.

    Hmmm...I seem to remember it working for seahorses...therefore you musn't have the mental faculties of a seahorse if you don't like serious relationships.

    Sorry, but they just seem to be little girls with dreams of rebeliousness, thinking up twisted lies in order to look good without having to confront social, ethical or moral responsibilities. And, we're not allowed to badmouth them because they're doing it under the 'banner of femininity'.

    What a joke.

  12. That reminds me of a Jim Beam ad showing a (presumably awful) chick band in revealing clothing, with the caption "Sometimes bad music is worth $8."
  13. hehe above quote was very good.

    Speaking of chick bands there's an Australian band called Lash which are getting radio play here it's cool that they're are making it but man the lead singer has this annoying whine in her voice sometimes other than that they are pretty good not my thing but good all the same and they don't seem to have some stupid gimmick to rely on like most do (I think).

    I assumed chicks prefered the atributes of a standard horse rather than a seahorse. (whinney whinney whinney)

    Ya' know, as a practicing Wiccan I'm firmly committed to live and let live, and strive to not be judgmental about other religious beliefs.

    That said, Rockbitch well and truly annoys the hell out of me. They're using the symbology and concepts of Wicca (and Paganism in general) for crass commercial effect - like a dark Spice Girls. I'd bet a buck that not one of them is actually a Pagan of any type. No self-respecting Pagan could take part in such mockery.

    Yes, they're attractive - but that's not the point. They pervert my belief structure, and that really pisses me off.
