Biography

Biography
Girl Peculiar started gigging, not as a musician but as a backing dancer for an experimental comedy rock band named ‘What the Fuck’s a parsnip.’ Although she enjoyed dancing and making her extravagant costumes for ‘The Parsnips’ gigs, she quickly realised she wanted to make her own music. Girl Peculiar began writing then performing her songs around Bolton, Manchester, Salford and various festivals around the U.K. This resulted in the building of a following in her local area as well as grabbing the attention of several local radio stations.

With her red cherry suitcase in one hand and her guitar on her back, Girl Peculiar extended her musical wings, travelling as far a field as Australia and Tokyo. She took her ‘Neon Tokyo geisha girl act’ and performed at the notorious Ruby Room Tokyo. (Girl peculiar has also performed dance routines as well as her music at some of her gigs held at jazz, burlesque or theatre type venues). She has also taken her music to America and sang her songs on Hollywood Boulevard, Venice Beach and played at the ‘Burning Man’ festival - Nevada dessert.

Girl Peculiar is currently entering music competitions, such as ‘Live ‘n’ unsigned’ where she has got through to the regional final on the 29th March. She is preparing her ‘Girl Peculiar Student Union tour’ where she will be performing around as many of the U.K student unions as she can. She is also recording her fifth E.P entitled ‘Girls Girls, Girls’ this E.P is taking her music to a new and slightly more upbeat quirky direction. Within the next few months Girl Peculiar is planning to change her musical base from Bolton to London (Camden) to further pursue her musical career. She plans to build up a following in Camden and also play her music at burlesque events which are currently very popular in London.

Lyrics

Angel Groupie Girl

Written By: Girl Peculia

I want bangers and mash with Johnny cash
and I would sleep with Elvis on the very first date

I wanna kiss in the rain with Kurt Cobain
An I would kiss him so hard he’d have no room to complain

I wanna be your drugs; I wanna be your alcohol
I wanna be your cocaine angel girl
I wanna be your drugs ,I wanna be your alcohol
I wanna be your cocaine angel girl

I wanna be your girlfriend in heaven I wanna your groupie angel girl I wanna be a rock star when I get to heaven, im gonna take my guitr way past the stars

I wanna dance like a ho with Marilyn Monroe and we'll lift our skirts up every place we go
Then a wanna get stoned with Jimmy Hendrix, and we will drift away in a purple haze

I wanna be your drugs ,I wanna be your alcohol
I wanna be your cocaine angel girl
I wanna be your drugs ,I wanna be your alcohol
I wanna be your cocaine angel girl

I wanna be your girlfriend in heaven I wanna your groupie angel girl I wanna be a rock star when I get to heaven , im gonna take my guitar way past the stars

Bridge

I wanna be punk rock so I asked sid and nacy and we danced away our anachy in the skies
Then a gain I want worl peace so I asked jeasus and he said theres nothing really much honey I can do about that

I wanna be your drugs ,I wanna be your alcohol
I wanna be your cocaine angel girl
I wanna be your drugs ,I wanna be your alcohol
I wanna be your cocaine angel girl

I wanna be your girlfriend in heaven I wanna your groupie angel girl I wanna be a rock star when I get to heaven , im gonna take my guitar way past the stars
