"All Music Gude Review"

Discharging ponderous selections within the darkest choices of punk rock and combining it with influences coming from the industrial style and other aggressive musical pickings, Binky displays a unique kind of combative hardcore rock. Assembling in San Francisco, CA, Binky associates the experiences of a female crew, comprising Klara Lux (guitar, vocals), Windy Wild (drums, vocals), Erin Luther (trumpet), and Mia d'Bruzzi (bass). Their considerable musical experience and powerful live shows rapidly opened the way for them to become one of the major acts in San Francisco's hardcore scene. In 1998, d'Bruzzi left, later, being substituted by Tijanna Eaton. Following countless inflamed concerts, the female quartet delivered its first disc, Kiss the Mall Goodbye, in late 2000. ~ Mario Mesquita Borges, All Music Guide

"SF Weekly - Night & Day March 2005"

"There was a period in the '80s during which music magazines enthused over the emergence of "girl groups" like the Go-Go's, Pat Benatar, and Joan Jett. But Jett took exception to her hard rock being compared to the output of pop songstresses, at one point even asking something like, "What do I have to do to get compared to the Kinks -- grow a penis?" Considering that many still believe female musicians produce only teeny-bopper pop (Britney and her ilk) or neo-soul (Mary J. Blige, India.Arie), a penis might have helped. But the female foursome BINKY is a horse of a different color, producing infectious punk-metal soundscapes laced with pounding drums, throbbing bass, and curiously cheerful trumpet blasts that rock as hard as anything Metallica ever made." - SF Weekly

"...If you want to bleed from the ears and the eyes, bang your head until you are unconscious, and enjoy it, then give BINKY a try." - the Mighty Yog Blog

"Adam reviews BINKY"

"Binky, a superb product out of "the City", are an all-girl 4 piece. But no sugar/spice/nice junk here, these girls are fierce! The music is a sort of punk/speedmetal-art/thrash, everyone sings (drummer does most lead), there's the first ever heavy metal trumpet played by Erin Luther, excellent punk/thrash guitar of Klara Lux. Drummer Windy Wild could eat Slayer's Dave Lombardo for breakfast (while singing) and an awesome tight-clean bass guitar comes from "screaming" Tijanna Eaton. The whole band dresses in post nuclear white vinyl" - Zero

"Maximum BINKY"

"Freddy Krueger meets Fellini; the trumpet adds a real unconventionality and an intriguing sound." - Maximum Rock N Roll

"Kiss the Mall Goodbye Review"

BINKY-Kiss The Mall Goodbye (Amoebe Records SF/Berkeley)
I get sick and tired of the danceable pop music I hear on the radio.
When that happens I need something like “Kiss The Mall Goodbye”. The first song is called “Carny”. It starts at full force. There’s a long, heavy intro. The drumming is by Windy Wild. It is thunderous throughout. I don’t know, if ‘Wild’ is her real name. It sure fits her drum style though. Then there’s a trumpet. Yes, a trumpet. Erin Luther plays it. I realize you will get thrown out of most heavy metal bands for even suggesting a little bit of trumpet sound. It works well for BINKY and it makes the music spookier. The vocal lines are distorted, to the point that the words aren’t easy to understand. A lyric sheet would have helped. Even without words it’s scary stuff. Thrash fanciers will like “Doomsday Loser”. You can hear Tijana Eaton on bass... Klara Lux plays a surprising number of guitar chords in a short period of time. This song is intense, to say the least. I’m not sure whose death grunt that is though {note from BINKY: Klara sings on Doomsday Loser, Windy sings the rest}. There’s a slow passage at the end, then “Doomsday Loser” grinds itself to a halt. There are three other songs on this CD. If you like music that charges at you like a train, you’ll like this.
Not recommended for the weak.

BINKY is the spawn of four women forming a bridge from old school punk to post-industrial thrash.

Known as the "Mistresses of Metal", BINKY is a band of daunting intensity. Their music has been described as carnival-deathmetal. And it will hurt you.

BINKY appeared on the Van's Warped Tour 2005 and was a featured artist at the "Jewels in the Square" concert series in Union Square, San Francisco. They have also been featured on multiple episodes of Comcast's "San Francisco Sound" television show.

BINKY blasts away all preconceived notions of female-made music as they amalgamate metal, punk and hard rock... with a trumpet.


Windy Wild (drums/lead vocals): Formerly of Angel Corpus Christi and Axis of Evil as well as numerous other musical projects in a variety of genres. This child prodigy with a blotchy past bursts into her new life-affirming germination fronting BINKY from the back: slamming the skins into the apocalypse while spewing her demented views of the world.

Klara Lux (guitar/vocals): Founder of The Brood, Typhoon and Lucy Stoners and acolyte of modern advanced decomposition theory, bestows her obsessive neuroguitar impressions to this unit, spiraling the whole into a frenzy of convulsing cathartic malaise.

Tijanna Eaton (bass/screaming): Mastermind behind Virgin Def Squad and Color Failure, returns from a 10-year drug, sex and recovery-induced hiatus to beat the crap out of quirky, jangly, eclectic, and Doc.

Erin Luther (trumpet/vocals): Classically trained in her instrument, applies it unconventionally to this post-industrial thrash unit, giving it an eerie, skewed carnival aura.

BINKY spooks the earwaves with some purge-inducing mojo vibes that will make you lose your fluids before you even know where that putrid plasma around your head came from.
