Dirty Guitars, Filthy Lyrics...

Some say that if Riot Grrrl and 90’s Grunge had a drunken encounter with a drag queen in a dingy back alley, the music of DRAG would be the lovechild of that chance encounter…

Being fronted by three females adds a misleading innocence to their song content, but careful listening reveals a darker undertone to many of DRAG’s performances. DRAG are regulars at Ladyfest and female-fronted band nights, providing a strong female stage presence without falling into the territory of ‘all-girl’ band. The tension between Heather and Velma delightfully crackles on stage, making no secret of their sexuality, without sacrifice or apology.

DRAG are an extremely committed band, and have personally funded all recording and promotion to date. They have independently released their second EP, “Homemade Plastic Surgery” under their own label, Sleazy Punk Records. This was released worldwide on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify in April 2011.

Notable recent successes:
• DRAG were proud to support Toyah Wilcox at the Birmingham date for her UK tour (April 2011).
• ‘Featured Artist’ on Sanctuary Radio, with an extensive interview revealing the stories behind the Homemade Plastic Surgery EP (April 2011).
• Headlining the Women’s Area stage at Birmingham Pride 2011 to great audience reception (May 2011).
• The music video for “Jack’s Song” (from Homemade Plastic Surgery) won first prize in both the Judges Choice and Public Vote categories of ‘2Weeks2MakeIt’ – a regional competition where musicians and film crews collaborated on music videos (June 2011).
• The “Jack’s Song” Video was also featured stateside at fearnet.com as one of ‘the most chilling new music videos’ to emerge from the UK.

Press Reviews:
• “If being different is the key to success then surely DRAG are destined for greatness” – BBC Music
• “Great songs - I love the band!”- Amanda Palmer, The Dresden Dolls
• “"DRAG are a band that go against everything that is currently out there" - Birmingham Mail
• “DRAG are perhaps Birmingham’s best kept secret, and this EP should finally see them thrown into the limelight, bringing them the recognition they deserve. Forthright and to the point, it’s a benchmark for mixing sleaze, Queercore Punk, and tough as steel guitars. It’s clear DRAG are bursting with energy, ideas, and not afraid to confront controversial subjects.” – Ryan’s Gig Guide
• “We love DRAG!” - G3 Magazine
