Artist of the Month, January 1997
White Trash Debutantes
When 78 year old singer Patty Pierce starts singing "I Wanna Party"
it's pretty clear the White Trash Debutantes aren't gonna be your ordinary
band. And when you catch on to the fact that the band was put together
by former Punk Globe Editor Ginger Coyote, you've realize the Debs have
got the makings of some serious derangement mixed with deep musical roots.
If the White Trash Debutantes were a tv show they would be "Married
With Delinquent Children"
The Debs claim to have been "Born in a ball of flames under a havest
moon" in 1989 in San Francisco, and they've been winning fans ever
since. You gotta love a band that invites Tonya Harding to join them onstage,
has played gigs w/The Ramones, L7, Green Day, Moterhead, and loads of
"Punk rock at its best" -Jerry Springer
"A prom night gone bad" -Kurt Loder
"The B-52's w/an edge" -Joey Ramone
You can read about the Debs history in depth in other places, but to
give you a quick 1996 review would include the news that the Debs released
the CD "It's Raw... But You Live For It" on 206 records, plus
released stuff on Axehandle Records, GI Productions, Alternative Tenatacles,
and Food Not Bombs. The band also received some primetime tv exposure
with a few songs chosen for the Don Johnson show, Nash Bridges.
Debs release "Susan Lucci"... it couldn't have been
easy to be on a 16 year losing streak and the Debutantes understand her
pain... and we're so happy for her now...
"I'm in love w/Patty and I want to take her home..."
-Young and now very confused
H.E.A.R. is as thrilled as monkeys in a banana boat to honor the White
Trash Debutantes as our December Artist of the Month. How fitting it is
to feature these lovelies as we celebrate the end of the year with Holiday
Cheer. We're a friend to the Debs, and all bands serious about having
fun and anxious to keep the ground from ever becoming too solid under
our feet. Pick up the Debs "It's Raw..." CD or find their EP
"My Name is Rudolph" and keep the eyeballs peeled in case this
gang of misfits rolls into your town some night ready to plug in and play.
