Bio

If the Pet Shop Boys and Madonna got together and had a drunken, explicit ménage-à-trois, Whore's Mascara might sound like their lovechild. Heavily influenced by the '80s, this band of lovers consists of the dark and brooding Brit Chaz Kourday, the Californian charmer Lonni Bahls, and the Aussie blonde bombshell Georgia Haege. Since they erupted onto the scene in early 2008, they've been spreading the seeds of lust all over New York and are gearing up for a much-anticipated European tour. If you haven't heard of them yet, brace yourselves; you're about to.

Michael Musto described Whore's Mascara as the "sardonically fun underground band heading mainstream" in his Village Voice column, and the trio has graced the stages of such NYC venues as Santos Party House, Joe's Pub, Irving Plaza and The Mercury Lounge. Most recently, Whore's Mascara released the camp-tastic video for their brand new single, "Monogamous." The vid was directed by legendary fashion photographer Patrik Andersson, who has photographed everyone from Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow to Mick Jagger and Lenny Kravitz.

Whore's Mascara's debut album LIKE THIS BUT SEXY hit stores in July 2008. Witty and filthy, profane and profound, its 11 tracks take listeners on a mind-blowing journey through lifes darkest crevices.

Here's what other critics have said after being left breathless and begging for more:

"With musical roots in 1980s electro-pop, Whore's Mascara's live acts feature darkly comedic riffs on everything from political figures to Manhattan club culture—with enough puns and double entendres to make a whore blush." ----Paper Magazine

"Mixing pop-perfection female vocals, an American male accent and a Noel Coward-esque English gentleman accent, Whore's Mascara sing as if they're in conversation, taking the piss out of each other and egging each other on to divulge more information on their sexual conquests. It's fabulous stuff; the kind of provocative pop that makes the Scissor Sisters look like nuns." ----reFRESH Magazine

"The Fugazi of post-electroclash." ----Vice Magazine

"Irrepressibly high quality music. High craft, poignant narratives, and just the right ratio of provocation." ----BastardLife.com

"The talk of the town and soon to be a household name!" ----Charles Winters

"Lust, love, desire, pansexuality, it's all there... Onstage, Whore's Mascara radiates passion and unapologetic perversion. The trio belt out a set of cheeky crowd pleasers as the Whorettes, a relatively new addition to their live shows, bump and grind atop five foot speakers in six inch heels. Kourday and Bahls take turns man-handling Sweet Georgia, sticking their tongues down her throat and behaving in a generally lascivious manner... Pretty soon New York is going to have to share its favorite international whores, as they prepare to unleash their debut album, LIKE THIS BUT SEXY, upon the world. The album is a dizzying electro-pop orgy, equal parts B-52s and Scissor Sisters." ----John Russell, HX Magazine

"This sexed-up singing group has a fab new video.'" ----Time Out New York

"Beat beauties Whore's Mascara offers a glammed and gorgeous performance...mop up that drool!"----Next Magazine

"Downtown's Current It Band! These whores are certainly worth the price. They're definitely all that we want! " ----HX Magazine

"Whore's Mascara is one of those acts that is difficult to describe to friends without getting a little confused yourself. Is it music? Performance art? Comedy? An intellectual exploration of the darkest corners of your sexual psyche? A wild ride that leaves you feeling breathless and a bit molested? The answer is wonderfully, dizzyingly, and confoundingly all of the above...reminding you that sometimes it is only in the deep folds of incisive wit that the truth can be found." ----Noize Magazine
