Governess (playing first)
Glam Skanks create a colorful audiovisual extravaganza using familiar tints from T Rex, The Runaways, David Bowie and The Sweet, with the drama of Alice Cooper and the genuine rock sensibility of Aerosmith, all wrapped up in a full-blown cosmetic Rocky Horror show meets Hedwig androgyny.
Pure entertainment and bigger than life, Glam Skanks are here to light up the world with their new release, Glitter City. A rock and roll roller coaster ride in a blazing cloud of glitter and raining feather boas, Glam Skanks are high-energy, free-spirited and lusty, with a bravado that screams Sunset Strip dreams and Hollywood nights that never end. They will wake you up, smack you down, get your heart beating and your mascara running. Drag Rock for the masses.
The band have opened for Alice Cooper, played as Cherie Curry’s backup band, have a new song in Kevin Smith’s new “Yoga Hosers” movie, and hung out with celebs like Johnny Depp. We have them on a night off from their tour with Adam Ant….
“Live, this band is a force of boot-stomping, sexually charged nature. The four members — vocalist Ali Cat, guitarist Veronica Volume, bassist Millie Chan and drummer Jaxine Sparkles (the sole dude) – are all in their early 20s, and yet somehow their musical education took a left turn early on into 1970s glam-rock territory. Listen to their debut album, this year’s Glitter City, and you’ll hear shades of Queen, Alice Cooper and David Bowie, sure. But more pointedly, and slightly confusingly, The Sweet, Suzi Quatro, T. Rex and even the Bay City Rollers.” – LA Weekly
