Bitch Queens

No tracks found into library

A high-energy live show, in-your-face riffs and a “fuck you” attitude—any questions!? OK ... the BITCH QUEENS sound isn’t just plain 1-2-3-4 Punk Rock; next to the straight beats and three-chord verses there’s plenty of room for some finesse and talent. Here you’ll find a ton of influences on display: It’s a street fight with Motörhead and the Backyard Babies, while next door the Dead Boys are drinking beer with The Datsuns. The BITCH QUEENS have proven themselves in over 150 shows in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Holland, France and—of course—Switzerland, supporting some of their very own favorites such as THE BELLRAYS (US), DOLLHOUSE (SWE), THE TURBO AC’S (US), THE LOMBEGO SURFERS (CH), BLOODLIGHTS (NOR), SEBADOH (US), TRASHMONKEYS (D) and many others. With Mascara and glitter oozing from their veins, there may be no other Swiss formation that can kick more ass on stage or throw a better afterparty than the BITCH QUEENS. Kid Krystal (Vox / Git), Captain Ace (Drums / Vox), Diamond Dan (Git) and Marc Steele (Bass) have been on the road since 2008. After the EP “High Strung” (October 2009) and their first LP “Female Shotgun” (October 2010) they now present a series of Split-7-Inches with three international bands. On board are the TRASHMONKEYS (D), THE LOMBEGO SURFERS (CH) and the DIRTY BLONDES (CZ). In the attempt to finally achieve the rawest, most energetic tracks possible, BITCH QUEENS decided to self-produce, record and mix their own output. The mastering was done by Tomas Skogsberg, a known name in the scene, not only for his early productions of the BACKYARD BABIES and HELLACOPTERS. Six tracks on the point of peaking to blow anyone’s mind—from your lousy kitchen speakers to your living room vinyl sound system, so light your cigarette, pour your beer and let’s rumble! “Great songs and great attitude!” Tomas Skogsberg, Producer “These guys rock like Backyard Babies meets Motörhead and a little Turbonegro.” Acey slade, MURDERDOLLS / TRASHLIGHT VISION “When the Bitch Queens hit the stage you know this is where the action is and it’s gonna be a sweaty night! Loud drums, blistering guitar solos and 100% Rock’n’Roll attitude is delivered up front and in your face. After a number of EPs the Bitch Queens are gearing up to record a new full length CD, turn up the amps and keep Basel on the European rock’n’roll map. This is the real stuff. Yeah!” Tony Padrone, THE LOMBEGO SURFERS “Endlich eine Basler Band die Mut hat zur Arroganz, Tunten-Trash, Mörder-Hooks und Attitude zum Fürchten. Love them or hate them but you definitely can’t ignore them. Thank Fuck for Bitch Queens!” Baschi, FUCKING BEAUTIFUL/DOGS BOLLOCKS “Bitch Queens is a rock’n’ roll band from Basel that I heard first time a couple of years ago. They play a perfect mix between Dead Boys and The Hellacopters and their live shows are great! Don’t miss them when they blow your town away!” Chris Winter, DOLLHOUSE Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
