"Artist & CD REVIEW"

Darla Pittman, June 2003
This versatile album will pull you in from the first note and hold you spell-bound till its dramatic end.

The Stiffff Kitties are bringing goth music into a new realm of being. Tackling tough issues, the band is quickly becoming one of the most influential bands in the underground. With a fan base that spans the globe, music critics singing their praises, the band is stealthily working their way into the hearts of every-day people.

The Stiffff Kitties have been tearing their way up the music charts, taking the world by storm. Their long-awaited debut album, Mya’s Book of the Dead has finally arrived to enthusiastic accolades from music critics worldwide.

You’ll dance, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry. And you’ll come back again and again and again. When long ago someone said "let the music play", THIS is the album they had in mind. With its upbeat dance tracks, driving guitar licks and orchestral groove, you’ll be left with one thought…."when’s the next album coming out?". We highly suggest pressing the loop button on your cd player.

WARNING! : We highly advice clearing your living room floor before playing the album. Any casualties from dancing around cluttered floors will in no way be fault of the artist.

Label News [07-20-2003]


ORLANDO, FL -- Dianne Meinke, originator of alternative group Stiffff Kitties, has signed the Goth/Industrial/Trance/Dance group’s album "Mya's Book of the Dead" to IceFire International Records of Vandor Motion Pictures, Phonorecords and Music Publishing Group (VMG World Wide). It is the second album of the association, the first “Sera de Morte”, and other single releases under the title “Dianne” are also playing well in the world charts: Atlantic Marketing, Ltd., Top 2,500.

“Everybody wants the kind of contract VMG puts on the table,” Dianne stated in a telephone interview, “Own your masters, own your soul, own your career with the highest royalties in the business and world wide coverage. My music crosses every known spectrum this side of rap, and VMG encourages all of it. No limitations. Do your music within commercially acceptable parameters, in tune, on time, balance, radio friendly and all the crossover you can get. No more complicated than that. New ideas and style changes are supported across the board and VMG’s doors are always open.

“We did the Sera de Morte album, and hit every brick wall imaginable. If it could go wrong, it went wrong. And VMG was there, more than equal to the challenge, never letting me or the record down regardless. From contract complications to finite promotion, the VMG/Vandor people were there. With that kind of proven support, signing Stiffff Kitties to VMG was the easiest decision I’ve ever had to make in this business.”

Vandor founder and former Chief, General Bobby Farrell, said, “Finding the Diannes of the world is the hardest part. That’s why Vandor turns down well over ninety eight percent of all the deals and offers that come our way. Excellent talent isn’t really all that rare, but when you find a multi-talent with intelligence and integrity to match, you put the best deal in the industry on the table. Being that selective on the basis of sound business principals permits us to pay the highest mechanical royalties in recorded music, and no charge back or recoupables.

”We don’t have to buy radio air time to get play, and we don’t have to buy charts to get position. Grand hype is one thing, solid delivery is another. Either it’s in the groove or it isn’t, and Dianne’s obviously is! She’s an entertainer’s entertainer, and a welcome addition to our stable of ExP/Artists.”

IceFire International Records owner, D. Chylon Budagher, added, “Dianne is one of those women in entertainment with more to offer than an exposed navel, high cut skirt and a low cut top. She’s an accomplished multi-instrument musician, songwriter, arranger, singer, producer and a ball of fire on stage. And best of all, she’s down to earth, never ‘above’ her audience or fellows.”

Sera de Morte and Stiffff Kitties albums are available via all major outlets including
