Keeping up with my series of bands
that have been blazing up my Last Fm play list as of late comes today's bio on Thee Merry Widows a group of young women who are certainly got their B movie mojo in full effect.
Certainly their cover for "The Devil's Outlaws" wins the award for best album art ever. The thing just screams "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill"
Here is the bio from their website:
Like a living, breathing Russ Meyers movie brought to life, Thee Merry Widows are a sight and sound to behold!
Combining elements of traditional psychobilly with their love of horrorpunk, surf, and garage, Thee Merry Widows are America's first all female psychobilly band. These girls may be pretty, but make no mistake, they ain't afriad to rock the fuck out!
Started by vocalist and burlesque queen Miss Eva von Slut and upright bassist Nikki Nightbreed in their San Francisco apartment, the band grew quickly to include sci-fi sweetheart drummer Andrea, garage rock rhythm guitar goddess Mistress Mandy, motorcycle maniac turned upright bassist Jenna Ferocious, and lead guitarist/kindergarten teacher Nishone.
Emerging from the underground, the band has become a major force to be reckoned with in California's psychobilly scene and have rocked shows with Demented Are Go, The Meteors, Guana Batz, Mad Sin, Nekromantix, The Long Tall Texans, Batmobile, The Coffin Nails, Hellbillys, and The Misfits to name a few. Thee Merry Widows have toured the US, the UK, Europe, and played a very special show for the boys at San Quentin. The girls are currently working on a blood lust follow up to Revenge Served Cold, slated for release in early 2008!
Alcohol-soaked and rocking like the Runaways on speed, these gals are ready to rumble! Think you're man enough?
That about sums it up!
Hot girls with a Russ Meyer inspired attitude playing hot rockabilly! Do you really need any thing else?
