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.

I love Lene Marlin, I haven’t heard from her since her hit ‘Unforgivable Sinner’ but she’s an amazing singer/song writer, her last album ‘Lost In A Moment’ was released in 2005. If you haven’t heard her music, you’re missing out! The only recent recognition from Lene, is that she had written a song for Rihanna, entitled “Good Girl Gone Bad”. (from Rihanna’s “Good Girl Gone Bad” album). However there are rumors that she’s currently in the studio recording a new album? It’s not confirmed, but if it’s anything like what you hear below, here’s hopeing!!
