Some 'Hot Gossip' for yaIt’s been a long time since I found any new music through MySpace. Since Tom started with the whole MySpace Music thing, bands don’t or can’t post free downloads anymore.
So it was very fortuitous that Dutch rockers Queen Bee hit me up last week. I sent them back a note saying I enjoyed their music and asked if they cared to contribute to my little blog here. It was my good luck – and yours – that drummer Esther wrote back and said the band would be happy to share a couple of tracks.
I wish I could tell you a little more about Queen Bee. All I know for sure is that they hail from The Netherlands and there are five band members: the aforementioned Esther on drums; Fiona on vocals; Lisette on lead guitar; Claire on rhythm guitar; and Wendy on bass. Their music is a Runaways style of pop/punk, but with a rough, garage edge. They claim influences as diverse as Pretty Girls Make Graves and the Beatles.
Right now, Queen Bee is unsigned. I hope that wherever they get picked up, they’re allowed to maintain their edge and not get “glossed” up. I definitely see more L7 here than GoGos. See what you think.
