Cotton Video Review
Label: SCRUFFY RECORDS
Video: "MANEATERS (GET OFF THE ROAD)"
Director: Jonathan London
Video Add Date: September 4th, 2007
there music video aficionados! It’s Andy Gesner
and my staff here at HIP Video Promo. When Johnny Knoxville used
“Johnny, Are You Queer?” in the second Jackass
movie, he gave himself a fitting theme song. He also reminded everybody
about one of the most consistently entertaining singers of the American
new wave: Josie Cotton, whose bratty insouciance and sure hand with a
melodic hook had no rival in the early Eighties. Her performance in the
iconic Valley Girl – she placed three songs on
the landmark soundtrack, including “Johnny,” “School Is In,” and the
propulsive “He Could Be The One” – epitomized everything that was
exciting about the era. But while Cotton is most associated with the
day-glo era, she’s been making fantastic music ever since, and adapting
her voice and her elastic songwriting to suit contemporary styles and
specific projects of her own choosing. It may have taken a jackass to
make that clear – but now Josie Cotton is back squarely in the public
eye, and indie music is much better for it.
you couldn’t tell from “Johnny, Are You Queer?,”
Josie Cotton is instinctively theatrical, and slips in and out of
characters’ voices effortlessly. Frightened By Nightingales,
her 1996 release, was an accomplished work of art-rock: moody, gauzy,
seductive, and miles removed from the playful power-pop of her 1982
debut. Movie Disaster Music, her widely-praised
2006 release, was another reinvention – one that captured the sinister
spirit of film-noir. Now, Josie Cotton has returned with Invasion
Of The B-Girls, a tribute to the camp and cinema of the
sixties and seventies. Inspired by John Waters and Russ Meyer, Invasion
Of The B-Girls, an album of covers of B-movie theme songs (a
truly unique and original concept), contains a love song intended for
Godzilla, and tales of bloodlust, revenge, and clueless men getting
their comeuppance at the hands of lascivious women. “Maneaters (Get Off
The Road)”, the first single, is Cotton’s revisiting of She-Devils
On Wheels, the 1968 B-movie classic about an all-female
motorcycle gang that terrorizes South Florida. Cotton delivers her
narrative with verve and a confrontational attitude: her love for her
source material is apparent, and she makes it infectious.
Cotton’s singing voice hasn’t lost any power
over the years; if anything, she’s more energetic and expressive now
than she was during her reign as a new wave hit maker. And as the clip
for “Maneaters” proves, she looks as fantastic now as she ever has.
Cotton has always been an eyeful, and her superb taste in vintage
clothing and hairstyles distinguishes her even among revivalists –
she’s no casual cinema fan, she’s a true believer who’s worked to get
all the details right (her go-go dancing is similarly impressive). The
“Maneaters” video looks like a B-movie; it’s Technicolor and
over-the-top, delightfully garish and surprisingly fashionable. Josie
Cotton plays the leader of the all-girl motorbike pack – one of her
gang-members is L.A. punk-rock legend- Ginger Coyote – and she rips up
the road with glee. Flanked by her lieutenants, she rides high on her
chopper, challenging any man to get in her way.

New Video from the Faith No More Founder´s New Band - HARMFUL
-Bill and I have known each other for quite some time, and we´ve
actually tried to do stuff together, but it has never worked out, so
I´m very happy that I was able to shoot the video for Bill and the
HARMFUL guys. To me it was a creative break in the making of The
Sequential Art, and since I like to do things the complicated way, I
did two versions of the video, says the writer/director Espen
Jorgensen, who also shot the video. I feel in love with Elaine (the
song) - it´s very diverse, and I think that reflects in the video.
Most of the videos out there are so shallow, I wanted to do something
different, and risk falling on my ass to get there, and I think I did
ok, well, so I´m told.
-I am a big fan of Espen Jorgensen; he is extremely focused in
whatever he does, and I knew that it would be a productive
collaboration from the start. But I had no idea as to the depths of
his depravity until he brought out the mannequin, says Billy Gould.
Harmful´s latest album was produced by Billy Gould and released on his
label Koolarrow (www.koolarrow.com), a label which focuses on foreign
bands who crosses the paths of rock, punk, metal and "folk".
No Studio produced the music video directed by Espen Jorgensen.
Jorgensen got a feature documentary in the making called The
Sequential Art, featuring amongst others Neil Gaiman, Daniel Clowes
and Will Eisner, who´s collectively done Stardust, Sandman, Ghost
World and Spirit. Jorgensen has earlier made music videoes for people
like Jimi Tenor, and got his productions shown all over the world.

Now in Pre-Release: Randy Jones New CD!
Just a personal note to let you all
know that my new CD "Ticket to the World" is now available in CD format
in pre-release ahead of the big January release. I hope you enjoy it as
much as I enjoyed working on the new CD! --Randy
YOUR DISCO NEEDS YOU!
This is your opportunity to buy Randy Jones' new
CD in pre-release. It is available as direct purchase using PayPal, or
buy going to
NEWSFLASH: "Ticket to the World" is now available
at iTunes for instant digital download. Click here to see:
The CD is essentially a double-album, with one
full-length album of pop greats, and one album of remixes by some of
the hottest new remixers like Marcos Carnaval, FC Nond, and 2Fabu, as
well as established superstars like Man Parrish.
The CD explodes into life with “Your Disco Needs
You”, a track that has all the brashness, bravado, and camp of the
classic Village People hits braced with the fervor of Broadway's “Les
Miz”. Next up is a fresh interpretation of the Saturday Night Fever hit
“If I Can’t Have You” blending audacious disco horns with electronica
Other tracks include the Monkee’s 60’s hit “I’m a
Believer” at a pulse-pounding 165 beats per minute, concluding with a
Hallelujah chorus worthy of a Sunday morning in church with Elvis
himself. “Rhinestone Cowboy” is given a two-steppin' chicken-fried,
Country-House feel, complete with fiddle and banjo. “New York City Boy”
is in your face with the brash, hairy-chested treatment, complete with
blazing NYC horns that the Pet Shop Boys version lacked.
5 STARS CDBABY: "Retro Disco Fever! Randy Jones's
Ticket to the World is like going back into time and reliving that
marvelous, danceable, & fun disco music era of my youth."

ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA @
Gene Simmons has a new reality
show on the A&E network, and in the very first episode,he has
shaken up the world of punk rock. In the first installment of his
series,Gene introduces us to his son, Nick, who has started a rock
band. Gene has announced that the band will be called Nick Simmons and
the Electric Chairs.Gene goes on to state that if the name isn't
trademarked, it's fair game.
That may be so, but the name Electric Chairs has been in usage for
decades by Rhythm Tracking fave Jayne(the former Wayne) County,who has
toured internationally, and had records released internationally as
Wayne County & the Electric Chairs, going back to 1978, when
the single, F**k Off" helped launch the UK punk explosion.Trademark or
not,I'm aware that 'first useage" and "interstate commerce" are key
factors in this sort of dispute.
It's not as if Gene does not know who Wayne/Jayne County is; Kiss got
their big break/recording deal by being an opening act for Wayne County
at a legendary NYC loft concert,as Kiss aspired to join the in crowd of
the underground NY rock scene, of which the New York Dolls and Wayne
County were the leaders(at the time, the group name was Wayne County
& the Backstreet Boys, another name that was plucked from
County's grasp in 1995, and asn't properly pursued.)
Could it be possible that
Gene, isolated from the 'street',living in a big bucks, Top 40, ultra
platinum universe,could not be aware that Jayne is still
active,performing and recording with the Electric Chairs 'brand' in
place?Jayne does not get radio airplay or big spreads in Rolling Stone,
but my efforts alone, as a fan and a friend, have kept the banner
flying for the likes of Wayne/ Jayne County, Cherry Vanilla, the New
York Dolls, all the Max's family.
This sort of thing also happened to the late, legendary Johnny
Thunders; after he left the New York Dolls, he formed the Heartbreakers
with fellow ex Doll Jerry Nolan and ex Television member
Richard Hell. The band made a major buzz happen in NYC and London,and
then Tom Petty, who'd been in a band called MudCrutch, came along and
decided that the Heartbreakers was a great name for a band.
This sort of thing can't be allowed,and this time around, I sense a
'grass roots' fight building(as when I took up County's defense when
the "Hedwig" play/movie hit the streets) over The Electric Chairs; at
the very least, Gene may have done Jayne County a very big favor by the
time that this is over(intentionally or unintentionally),as the ensuing
legal threats, 'cease and desist' actions, etc. will
certainly draw much more attention to Jayne County(millions of tv
viewers will probably find out about her for the first time) than any
attention being given to Nick's 'basement, rock
star's son's" band.
So perhaps, when this all plays itself out, Jayne County will have to
send Gene a "thank you note"; perhaps Gene cooked this whole thing up
in the first place, as repayment for Kiss getting their initial deal
with Neil Bogert and Casablanca Records by serving as an opening act,
back in the day, for the ground breaking Wayne County.
a ruthie's inn reunion /
documentary show is being planned for September 23rd , two short months

experiences, please send what you can anyway. this will be a collective
ruthie's inn was instrumental in supporting the east bay punk scene and
eventually spawned a thriving thrash/metal scene. many bands played
their first gigs at this venue and helped pave the way for an
incredibly vibrant community of social misfits and serious musicians
who had something to say -- a great venue that will go down in the
annals punk and metal history. please check back for updates or look
out for bulletins with ruthie's in the subject line and REPOST!
