From their early day gigs in '93 at Detroit 'Nam-vet watering hole The
Old Miami, to their Spring '96 slot warming Iggy Pop's toilet seat up
the US west coast, the Doll Rod's music and stage show have coalesced
into a truly sick spectacle of primitive and perverse FREEDOM ROCK!
The Doll Rods are a one-band movement, a lifestyle high-colonic, an Rn'B
T&A circus garnering legions of new fans wherever they go. They do
happen to make a few people pretty fucking uncomfortable just by being
so damn comfortable with themselves, but if that's the case, just relax
and let them wildly diddle your not-so secret spot. If you wanna shake
your ass, well, just come on...
The Doll Rods are:
Cristine (drums) - sex bomb metrnome who lives in a sound world all her own.
Margaret (vocals, guitar) - singer/songwriter/ringleader. She literally
bends over backwards for your pleasure.
Danny (guitar, vocals) - school of hard licks graduate (formerly in the
Gories). What little clothes he wears indicates he's in drag. And baby,
if you can't hang with that, you can just go home.
Sisters Margaret and Cristine were caught dirty dancing to soul sisters
Martha Whitney and Sugar Pie DeSanto and shipped off to catholic school.
It was there that they met soulmate Danny, busy sinning to the Ramones
and the Runaways. And one velvet morning, run away is what they did, in
order to realize their dreams of rocking in an "all-girl" kind of way.
The Doll Rods enjoy a legendary reputation amongst this nation's
Teamsters, who collect and trade stories and videotapes of the band's
nearly nude truckstop yoga sessions. Sure, these love-making problem
children have toiled in the basement like all the rest, but make no
mistake, they're a well-lubed touring machine who've come into their
sound through tens of thousands of miles of good old fashioned road
work. They've whipped audiences into a frenzied state on their tours
with Iggy Pop, Blues Explosion, Boss Hog, Guitar Wolf and Quintron.
The Doll Rods happily consume lotus root, kale, millet; adamantly shun
deadly nightshade family members eggplant, green & red peppers, tomatoes
and potatoes. They enthusiastically endorse Smooth Move herbal laxative.
The Doll Rods released singles for Womb/Past It, Bulb, Bag Of Hammers
and In The Red before unleashing their monstrous debut "Tasty" on In The
Red records. "Tasty" was produced by Mick Collins and Jon Spencer over
two separate sessions - it's a masterpiece. Their latest album, "TLA"
was released on Matador records - it's another masterpiece.
