Bitch and the Exciting Conclusion
Onstage, the politically charged violinist/vocalist is a force to be reckoned with a
hell-fire storm of rock, rap, folk, and unrestrained rage. --Flavorpill LA
You may know her from her former band Bitch and Animal (Righteous Babe Records)
or John Cameron Mitchells movie Shortbus) Her new band, Bitch and The Exciting
Conclusion, is infectious and down-right inspiring. Bitch sings, plays electric violin,
ukulele, bass and keyboards. Gabriel K sings, plays bass and keyboards. Lee Free
rocks the drums. After touring for over a year together, the three have finally recorded their unique sound, an ep called B+TEC, released on Bitchs own label, Short Story Records.
Their shows combine a harsh, stripped down art-rock sound mixed with tender ballads and larger-than-life Bitch, with Gabriel's minimalist bass lines and vocal harmonies and the fiery drumming of Lee Free, who mixes electronic sounds into her drum set. On stage, their joy is obvious.
The Joans dont like to blend in with the crowd. The moment you get your first glimpse of The Joans, you know that this time, its going to be different. The Joans wouldnt be caught dead in ripped jeans and a tee-shirt. The Joans dont mind if you stare at them, as long as you start to dance as well. The Joans want to be the life of the party because they understand that when people go out to a club to hear a band they want more than music. The Joans entertain.
The mission of The Joans is simple; give legendary Hollywood star, Joan Crawford, the rock and roll voice she deserves. The spirit of Joan Crawford is so overwhelmingly powerful it takes the bodies of one man and one woman to contain it. The Joans want to make others aware of the groundbreaking over the top persona that was and is Joan Crawford by embodying her unique spirit through a musical recipe of one part new wave pop, a dash of garage rock, a generous helping of camp, and a pinch of theatrics topped off with original songs. Served hot, it pleases any crowd hungry for something out of the ordinary.
