BandRockPunk

London based female fronted rockpoppunk band. "Think Aerosmith, The Bangles, Debbie Harry, The Ramones, The New York Dolls, CBGB’s and the film ‘Into the Valley of The Ultra Vixens’ all rolled into one " singing about Soho, smut, goldfish, trainspotters stuffed into sing-along-choruses.

Biography

Inspired by the eponymous B- movie, 50ft Woman came to be. Rolling all her favourite bands into one, front woman Minki created a superhero character with a superhero soundtrack. now ably assisted by a brand new line-up giving a more edgy rock feel, they have been described as ‘Blondie’s forgotten love child’ and a personification of ‘Into the Valley of the Ultra Vixens’. Catchy choruses, quirky lyrics and crunchy guitars make for a heady mix.

2010 saw them supporting The Union on their UK tour and King Kurt and Vince Ray and the Boneshakers at the London Tattoo Convention, topped with a capacity burlesque EP-launch in Hoxton.

2011 saw them at Silverstone for the British GP as guests of the Marussia Virgin Racing Weekend with Dry The River, life in Film and Alistair Griffin and headlining the Phoenixbury festival, amongst other festival dates.

Currently filming the video for the next single, 'Google Tan' and booking London dates, with a view to festival and further afield UK dates later in the year.

Lyrics

Soho Sophisticated

Written By: Malkin/Radcliffe

She looked a lot like a young Liz Taylor
In Cleopatra, know the film I mean?
Cappuccino in the Bar Italia
Pavement table [she] really dug the scene
It's so sleazy, it really turns her on
High high hey hey lovely way to spend the day
High high hey hey give her the money and take her away
She's Soho sophisticated, she doesn't have to try
She's Soho intoxicated, she's so high she can kiss the sky goodbye
She likes the taste of the old French Gauloises
She likes the smell of the mean machines
All the boys in Versace tank tops
Holding hands in their tight blue jeans
It's so sleazy it really turns her on
High high hey hey lovely way to spend the day
High high hey hey give her the money and take her away
She's Soho sophisticated
She's Soho intoxicated
She's Soho sophisticated she doesn't have to try
She's Soho intoxicated she's so high she can kiss the sky goodbye
She's Soho sophisticated she doesn't have to try
She's Soho intoxicated she's so high she can kiss the sky goodbye ..
