Biography

From a fortified compound outside of Atlanta Georgia, Ginger V. has been tediously laying the groundwork for what he would call “an all out vaudevillian assault” on Rock and Roll.

Ginger V. started his solo career roughly a year after the disintegration of his first band Scarlet Androgyny. After floundering through muddled attempt after muddled attempt to start a new band, Ginger’s frustration eventually got the best of him. In the winter of 2009 he made the decision to follow in the footsteps of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Marilyn Manson, Jimmy Hendrix, and many of his other childhood heroes, and start writing music under his own name.

So, With a team of ex-band members, close friends, and a slurry of talented musicians, artists, and engineers, he began work on his debut Album, “The Fake & The Fabuless” which is set for release in mid-2011.

With unbridled ambition and miles upon miles of footwork, Ginger V. Is making a name for himself…

…Even if it is a girl’s name.

Lyrics

The Fake & The Fabuless

Written By: Ginger V.

You think that you're so special,
you think you're so important,
but you're inconsequential,
your pretty frame has broken

Cut off the heel,
make it fit no matter the cost,
this is a moral sale,
and everything must go

We are the de-generation,
so flawed and fabuless
we are the new sin-sation,
and we're just as fake as we seem

We are so super-fictional,
so faithful yet so Godless,
this isn't anti-art it's religion at it's finest

Stick the needle in the vein,
and glue it there,
it's just a fairy-tale,
and I'm not scared

We are the de-generation,
so flawed and fabuless
we are the new sin-sation,
and we're just as fake as we seem

Yeah you'll all fall in line, this is the last time
you'll ever see your own personality,
I'll make you just like me
and then you'll all sing along,
this is the last song
you'll ever have the chance to hear.

R. Velveteen

Written By: Ginger V.

Nothing ever lasts,
we're always second best,
but the whore that never changes,
is better than the rest

and so you nail her down,
and split her head in two,
open the belly of what you hate,
just to see if she's been thinking of you,

(and she screams)

I am the Holocaust,
I am the silver screen,
I am expendable,
I am the Velveteen

There's not much left to love,
nothing seems the same,
but when I sell my self to you,
I fall in love again

and so you nail her down,
and split her head in two,
open the belly of what you hate,
just to see if she's been thinking of you,

(mother fucker)

I am the Holocaust,
I am the silver screen,
I am expendable,
I am the Velveteen

call me a rock star,
call me a whore,
call me dirty,
we are what we think

call me an Icon,
call me dead,
call me filthy,
we are what we think,

(Einz, Zwei, Drei, Vier)

I am the Holocaust,
I am the silver screen,
I am expendable,
I am the Velveteen

Deaths Head Romance

Written By: Ginger V.

You're Perfect,
I know that you're in pain but yuo deserve it,
and no we're not the same but to be sure of it,
I'll wear your face tonight.

and we'll get high,
you'll give me one thousand reasons to lie,
and we'll never really have to decide,
who should stay or who should go.

and when you're crushed to the pavement,
head caught in the wheels,
and you pray that she's next, and the truth is concealed,
all the lies that you've told will be buried in palms,
she convinced you to cut to write one thousand songs.

and you believed,
all the things she said,
so you climbed into her bed,
and changed all your shapes

oh yes we're plastic,
we know it's hard to take, but don't look past it,
just cover up your face with pretty masks its,
a Deaths Head Romance

You'll be devoured,
and every thing you love will soon be ours,
hung up in a gallery and showered,
in Deaths Head Romance.
