Austin Rockers, 10'' MARIA have released a new CD...
Austin Rockers, 10'' MARIA have released a new CD that includes the rock and roll biker song, "Two Wheels are Better than 4". Of course we all know that, but these women bring it with a old school rock sound!

10'' MARIA may be an all girl band, in fact thier mott is "All Girl All the Time", but they don't play girly music. The CD has seven no-nonsense, straight ahead rockers that just scream, "Play it Loud!" Check out their website for samples of their music www.10inchmaria.com

A sound that morphs the 80s bad girl icon Joan Jett with the 90s heavy rock-n-roll flavor of L7, 10" Maria's "All Girl All The Time" will resurrect those juvenile delinquent behaviors you thought you tucked away in the closet long ago. The first track, Two Wheels are Better than Four - a potential anthem for women motorcycle riders - sets the tone for the album, but its Drain and Mother that best demonstrates the band's talent with its driving guitar, deep drum and bass lines, growling vocals and shocking lyrics. And just when you're convinced these women offer only a hard-as-nails exterior, Just Jane, peels it right away exposing a deeper (softer?) look inside. So when searching for a new soundtrack to fuel the hidden angst in your life -- forget the mainstream, watered-down variety -- 10" Maria is 100% lethal. Bottoms up!

Bio

A 10" MARIA is not what you might think it is, but it does glow in the dark so get your minds out of the gutter! A 10" MARIA is a ten-inch statue of the Virgin Mary. Something to be passionate about and to admire.

10" MARIA was founded in 1993 by bassist Mona Febonio. She had a vision and went to a pawn shop and bought a Rickenbacker, took two lessons and then true to her Aquarius form built a recording studio. The band has been through a few drummers, and a heckuva lot of guitarists, and finally 10" MARIA is the band all members knew they were born for. The band has always been all-girl and always will BE.

With 10" MARIA'S straight ahead hard rock, melodic, angry, tough, sexy, ear splitting, and magnetic songs, you're destined to get what you came for at A 10" MARIA show, and then some!
