The Rock and Roll Report Band of the Week is Barbe-Q-Barbies

barbe_q_barbies_promo_2008This week’s Band of the Week is Finnish all-girl rockers Barbe-Q-Barbies.

Rustproof 21st century rock, played loud and proud with a femininely furious attitude. AC/DC and Queens Of The Stone Age meet The Runaways in the night of Helsinki.

The tale of Barbe-Q-Barbies began in 2002 but the current and final member count wasn’t reached until in the beginning of 2007. The band members are the following fierce femmes: Niki (vocals), Kaisa (guitar, background vocals), Niina (drums, background vocals), Ekkis (guitar) and Katja (bass guitar). Each of them has that “twist and shout” mentality spiced with the unique sting of gasoline-drenched rock’n’roll. The music speaks of their rosy world – and how they survive in it! Although the lyrics tell of bad men and wicked women and the rest of life’s little perks, the band tells its tales frankly and without frills.
