The Wanton Looks
The Wanton Looks are four women who deliver the goods. The group was conceived by Traci Trouble (Paper Bullets, Thee Invaders, HotLips Messiah) and Meg Thomas (Reptoids, OD TAPO IMI). After countless auditions of guitarists, Inga Olson (The Closet Squatters,The Howl) joined the band followed a year later by southern sweetie Susie Q (Slutter,The Howl). They will break your face and your heart. Stay tuned for their debut album which is going to blow your mind.
Bad-girl harmonies (think Shangri-La's) meet fuzzed-up guitar and relentless tempos. Sure it's been done countless times before, but when it's done well – with fizzy hooks and towering sing-along choruses – who can complain? "Electromagnetic Force" is aptly named, "Demons" stomps like Motorhead, the first chord on "Worst Side of Me" sounds like a bomb detonating. -Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
For the sake of argument, let's try to imagine a world where everything even indirectly related to rock 'n' roll is as insufferably uncool as your gouty aunt's country-club bridge game. While it's a safe bet that rock would lose 99.9 percent of its fans to other modes of conspicuous consumption, you can be sure that local rocker Traci Trouble (formerly of Hotlips Messiah and the Paper Bullets) would still be doing everything she's doing now. I've met very few people as passionately dedicated to "the rock" as Trouble, and for her new band, the Wanton Looks, she's found three other women who share her devotion. Songs like "Worst Side of Me" (on an upcoming seven-inch comp from Kalamazoo's UFO Dictator Records) and "Demons" combine the snarly, cocksure aggression of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts with Buzzcocks-a-riffic guitar solos and a surplus of well-placed vocal hooks. —Brian Costello, Chicago Reader
The Wanton Looks: Though they have only about eight songs written, this Chicago quartet shows enough promise to make me hope they stick around long enough to write a bunch more. They specialize in massive choruses over heavy, fuzz-tone guitars. Nothing chintzy or undernourished about this sound. Bassist Traci Trouble, drummer Meg Thomas and guitarists Inga Olson and Susie Q simply bring the rock. - Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
Chicago-based trio, The Dyes, infuse 60s inspired garage-rock with infectious 50s rockabilly undertones to create a punchy and melodic, yet raw rock n' roll sound. By digging up the roots of influences such as: Hank Williams, The Cramps, Wanda Jackson, and The Flat Duo Jets, this female-fronted trio is sure to catch the ears of a wide-spectrum of music lovers as they toss hints of punk, surf, blues, and country into the mix, and stir it up with their own unique twist.
