"As indicated by the name and confirmed by tunes like "Meet my Unreasonable Demands," a thirty-second blast consisting of two chords and that lyric, Lust Cats of the Gutters is riot grrl at its most unadulterated...The two girls of Lust Cats...managed to nevertheless exude a magnetic sort of sincerity that won me over. And I wasn't the only one -- Lust Cats had the crowd dancing." --Jef Otte

Playing unvarnished, catchy tunes as though there had never been any interruption in the development of that strain of punk called riot grrrl, Lust-Cats of the Gutters (due Wednesday, November 25, at Denver Creative Co-Op Studio, 425 Lincoln Street) sound like the Shaggs without the perversely eccentric sense of melody. In the summer of 2009, the Lust-Cats received a Twitter comment from an unlikely source on its song "Revenge Bikini Body." The phrase "u wont like at all if yrpop" came from alternative-rock icon Courtney Love. With a mixture of jagged guitar work, go-go rhythms and an unapologetic feminist critique on the depiction and role of women in society, the Lust-Cats are well within the realm of similarly minded acts like Cavity and Bikini Kill. Much like the latter, this band proves that experts rarely create the most fun and empowering music.

Bio

Once upon a time, we gals thought, Aw, hey, why don't we start a band? For that's sometimes what young'uns get up to. We played together a handful of times and wrote some extraordinarily twee songs, and immediately decided to scrap that angle and get fierce. So we added a distortion pedal, cheap mics, and yelling, removed two toms from the kit, and wrote some really simple chord progressions. Et voila. Are we a punk band? Uh, sure, why not. We started practicing once a week (all while helping to organize Denver's first lady-centered music fest, Titwrench) and made our stage premiere on July 25th at that very festival.

As far as influences go, we are united by a love for :
Hole, orange soda, Harriet the Spy, stanky prom dresses, Lene Lovich, DORIS zine, red lipstick, the Ramones, the Raincoats, all things spooky, Julie Doucet, Dame Darcy, the Tarot, Michelle Tea, Bikini Kill, Beat Happening, the Vaselines, and Miss Courtney Love herself, bless her heart.
