Texas Terri Bomb!: Your Lips... My Ass! [Apr. 20th, 2004|08:51 pm]

Oh dear. Her deal, as I understand it, is that she passes herself off as the female Iggy: very loud, semi-naked, uh, very loud. But the Iggy of the period she's imitating had two important things that she doesn't: 1) really great songs, and 2) the Stooges. Also, he was Iggy--I remember Monica Kendrick's description of how he played with the inflections of every little scream on Fun House until they were exactly right. This is exceptionally evident when she actually does one of the Stooges' songs, "I Got a Right"--the original version is a spiked ball hurtling right toward your head; this one is a big heavy weight, but it's just sitting there, and it's only got some bumps on it. The stupid-and-simple thing is not nearly as easy as it sound; just howling your throat raw doesn't itself do the trick.

Oh Dear!

So you think that I think that I'm the "female" iggy...hmmmm, never said that myself...that would be the press and fans that say that...so you think that I am an Iggy imitation or wanna be Iggy, think again...so why don't you stop "comparing" me to Iggy. I like singing in a band. You obviously don't like what I do, that's fine and dandy...but I did wanna set the record straight, never ever compared myself, nor referred to myself as the "female" Iggy...so write about that bitch!
Thanks for taking the time to write about me though...love txt

Wow, when I first saw her in CA, many years ago, I was so bored.
