Barb Wire Dolls - "Your Escape"
Slit is the debut album from female fronted Greek Punk trio Barb Wire Dolls. Recorded in Chicago in two days at Electrical Audio by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Stooges, Pixies), Slit is a stripped down and liberating listen.
Barb Wire Dolls combine first wave punk and grunge rock in a politically charged, hook-filled, three power chord punch. Described by Guitar World magazine as "a true-to-the-genre punk band" and fronted by the fiery and outspoken femme-fatale singer Isis Queen along with guitarist Pyn Doll and drummer Krash Doll, the band came together while living in an artist commune on the island of Crete. Barb Wire Dolls were invited to play Los Angeles after DJ Rodney Bingenheimer started playing their demo non-stop on KROQ. Within a few weeks the band moved to California and sold out the Roxy on their first go, becoming the first punk band from Greece to perform in the US. Barb Wire Dolls shows have attracted rock icons Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Chuck Dukowski (Black Flag), Jennifer Finch (L7) and Frances Bean Cobain. The songwriting on Slit is an examination of societal absurdities, a special interest and religious conspiracy to obscure truth and the urgency to wake-up and confront it before it’s too late.
"Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Guns N' Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had....that is until now. With their sound, their look and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades...take the music industry by storm." - Sugarbuzz Magazine
