This is pretty great. Legendary Nikki Corvette teamed up with Amy Gore of the Gore Gore Girls. Detroit girls know how to rock. Badass guitar tones, surfy drums, and snotty vocals. Doesn’t get cooler than this.
“I think girl rock bands will always be considered a novelty,” says Gore. “The impression will be ‘What’s this all about. Who do these girls think they are?’ Seriously, each player is judged on their own merit. If you have the good fortune of getting four good players together, then you’re gonna have a good band. And at this point, our band is one of the best all-girl bands around, of all time, within the rock ‘n’ roll genre.”
She’s absolutely correct to describe her band as “a feral, visceral, eight-legged, big-haired rock ‘n’ roll machine.” Get the Gore is out now on Bloodshot Records.
This band has come a long way from the snotty Detroit punks they started as ten years ago, although there’s still a healthy dose of 60s garage punk in their sound. To call them a classic Girl Group is only a small part of the equation. The Gore Gore Girls are a fucking great rock and roll band, and to dump them into any small-minded category does their music a disservice.
