Her Majesty the Baby
Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Crunchy, sometimes ethereal rock
Only known album, Mary, 1996
Band member Terri Winston now records under the name, Tea.
The Breeders, Rose Chronicles, Throwing Muses, Mary's Danish, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Juned, a mostly harder-edged Cocteau Twins.
This is *wonderful* stuff. Her Majesty the Baby has a The Breeders-like lineup (three women on lead instruments, one male drummer; or as my advisor calls it "three chicks and a guy with sticks"). The best approximation to their sound I can think of at the moment is Rose Chronicles, except less woo-woo; lead singer Lee Paiva has a more mature-sounding voice than Kirsty Thirsk as well. Lots o' jangly guitars and vocal harmonies and killer hooks. A San Francisco-area band. *Very* ecto. (dixon@physics.Berkeley.EDU)
Recommended first album:
Mary is their only known album
1996--nu.millennia records, 10585 Santa Monica Blvd. Suite 140, Los Angeles, CA 90025, U.S.A.--61246-71700-2-0
Wide in U.S. on release; probably out of print
Lee Paiva--vocals, bass
Lee Paiva & Terri Winston
A mix of hard rock/strong vocals and softer tunes with harmonic vocals. Mostly lively songs full of infectious hooks. Quite delightful. (Neile)
