Babes In Toyland

Babes In Toyland

 Babes in Toyland was an American all-female / trio formed in Minneapolis in 1987. Members included Kat Bjelland (guitar and vocals), Lori Barbero (drums) and Michelle Leon (bass). Michelle left the band in 1992 and was replaced by Maureen Herman. The band split and reformed throughout the 1990s, losing their record label when Maureen Herman left the band in 1996. Due to legal issues and make-ups and break-ups… the band played their last shoes in 2002 but stopped using the name (Babes In Toyland) after Barbero and Herman raised legal issues.

 The band formed in 2006 as a joke, played a house show and were asked to open for The Hiss on the strength of their performance. The name was chosen for its vulgarity – an irreverent take on abortions – though all band members are pro-choice.

Their playfulness continues into their songs, with titles such as ’Don’t Touch My Shit, Nestle In My Boobies and Mustache Ride. Despite their low expectations, no one seems to be dismissing them as a novely act. A live demo is in circulation and upcoming releases are due from Die Slaughterhaus and Rob’s House Records.

Girl In A Coma

Girl In A Coma

Female rock trio Girl in a Coma formed in San Antonio, Texas in 2001. While Nina is often referred to as “the female version of Morrissey,” the band as a whole has been compared to The Smiths, Interpol and the Pixies. Drawing heavily from these influences (the band’s name, Girl in a Coma, comes from the classic Smiths song “Girlfriend in a Coma”), the Girls have managed to create a sound and style that not only pays homage to their heroes, but is uniquely their own.

In early 2006, the Girls found themselves back in New York City where they were introduced to two of their biggest fans Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna of Blackheart Records.

Currently the girls have been touring with Tegan & Sara. Check out their tour dates here.

Butterfly currently resides in the United States. She released her first track of the album, “I Can’t Make Me,” in the UK first. It did poorly. However, when she released that track along with “Another White Dash,” her U.S. success was assured. While a second album is in the pipeline, there is no official date for its release.

The more I hear her voice, the more I want to listen to her music! It’s understated singer/songwriters like this that I appreciate and feel like it’s worth spending money on; when you buy the music, because it’s something personal they’ve poured their heart and soul into, unlike some commercial rubbish out there. This is what real talent should sound like.
