The BB Guns

BandPopPunk

Surfin’ through the musical landscape of hard and soft, the BBs take you on a rip rollin’ journey full of hazy fun. The image and name remind you of something you once loved and something you are about to love all in one breath. It's a little punk, a little girly and all tough cookies. Laser gun guitar tones, jingle jangle melodies and a pulsing, heart pounding, move your hips rhythm, is what this pack is about.

Biography

The BB Guns. The band's image and sound is captured in it's headline worthy name; it's the balance of the hard and soft that defines a great band. It's equally masculine and feminine, while doting on both the sweet-heart love and sleazy one night stands.

The BB Guns feed the imagery of hard and soft, boy and girl through the members themselves. Lead Singer/Songwriter, Laura Hermiston looks like the girl next door, but writes and performs with a tongue full of venom and a heart drowned in whisky. She may seem sweet, but the words will sting. Charlotte Marie steps up to that keyboard with her hair full of hairspray, mirroring a modern, brunette Bridget Bardot. Her softer voice and pulsating keyboards complements Laura's expressive yelps and jingle-jangle guitar tones beautifully. Lead guitarist, Alana Marta Dee, brings her punk roots to the BBs brand of surf-punk haze with ferocious tenacity. The rhythm section is rounded out by Clint Rogerson on bass and Dan Arget on drums. Laser gun guitar tones, jingle jangle melodies, pulsing keys and a heart pounding, move-your hips rhythm section propel this band ahead of the pack- the leaders of the pack, in fact.

Lyrics

Pennie Lane

Written By: Laura Hermiston and the BB Guns

I want him to ring me
I want him to want me?back
I want him beside me
Oh I’m so very lonely

And when the song is all done
All the slut claws come for fun

I want to be Pennie Lane

I want him to see me
I want him to fall on his knees
I want him to come back
But he is not a good man

Baby, I Hate You

Written By: Laura Hermiston and the BB Guns

Say to me what you want to hear
I’ll be waiting here dear
Boy you’ve got a lot of nerve
Go and find someone you perve

Move on

Sometimes I forget I should forget you

Get your broke ass out the door
Find someone who cares you’re poor?You messed up your whole life?Dare you to find a loving wife

Move on

Sometimes I forget I should forget you

(She Thinks She's So) Soho

She thinks she’s so soho x 4
Hey x2
She thinks she’s so soho x4

She thinks she’s so soho x4

Dear Abbey

Written By: Laura Hermiston and the BB Guns

You’re jaded and you know it
Quarter life crisis
You come up to me lady
Gimmie your best advice

Dear Abby

I don’t wanna hear it
Some deep social malaise
Oh you haven’t a clue
Next time I won’t be as nice

Dear Abby

(Dear Abbey, there's this girl at school.
She picks on me, teases me in the halls,
And makes me look like a fool.
I don't know what to do)

It’s not ordinary to pick me apart
You’re so very conniving
