Shilpa Ray And Her Happy Hookers: Teenage And Torture

Shilpa Ray And Her Happy Hookers - with a name like that you will never a record deal with a major. This Brooklyn foursome sings about sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and liquidations sales. Soccer moms will hate it, fans of dirty rawk with a penchant for low budget horror, sex and violence will love it. And they get plenty of all that on the band's new album Teenage And Torture.

Singer Shilpa Ray can howl like a banshee, simultaneously banging the shit out her harmonium, but it is the menacing rumble of bass player Nick Hundley that gives The Hookers their edge. Punctuated by dry drum sound of John Adamski and the in-your-face guitar licks of Andrew Bailey. It's all in red, with tons of leakage, an engineers nightmare With just two breather tracks, the a slow trip describing >Genie's Drugs and the album's closer Requiem In A Key I Don't Know, be prepared for a late night roller coaster ride through the bowels of the Big Apple.
