„GIRL MONSTER VOLUME 1, IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF RE-WRITING MUSICAL HISTORY!“
The Triple CD compilation “GIRL MONSTER” Volume 1 on Chicks On Speed Records celebrates the re-written history and future of women’s creative audio outputs, to further invent and challenge the future of music and push the boundaries of sound and pop around the world!!!
“GIRL MONSTER” tells a rich historical story, from the original girl monsters of punk and post punk to contemporary tricksters and electro-rock pranksters…
Female heroes of the late 70ies and early 80ies like The Slits, The Raincoats or Malaria! appear alongside contemporary classics like Björk, Le Tigre, Peaches or Chicks On Speed. But what sets the compilation apart from all the other compilations around the topic of “Women and Music” is that it is not just a collection of what everybody knows already, packaged under the misleading slogan of “Women in Rock”, instead this compilation creates a movement of its own, containing 2/3 EXCLUSIVE tracks, showcasing some of the finest (and mostly unreleased) tracks from a worldwide underground network of female musicians, even following in the tracks of some of the classics like Tina Weymouth (Tomtom Club/Talking Heads), Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), Siouxsie Sioux (Siouxsie and the Banshees), or Ana Da Sliva (The Raincoats) by featuring their latest productions.
This specially priced and packaged 3 CD set contains 60 tracks, (of which 40 exclusively appear on Girl Monster), an 8-page Girl Monster Newspaper with exclusive texts by Lucy O’Brien (author of the classic “She-Bop”) and others. Designed by Chicks On Speed and Factor Product. The 3 CD set has a playing time of more than 3½ hours.
Girl Monster was conceived by Alex Murray-Leslie from Chicks on Speed, and realised in conjunction with Anat Ben David and Chicks on Speed Records. Watch out for future volumes.
