Queeny Blast Pop
Due to this the band relocated to L.A. where the torch was still burning. Kelli and Travis stayed in Seattle though, god knows what they're doing today. QUEENY BLAST POP replaced their drummer and vocalist with Pepper Sweet respectively Punky Jean.
They also added a second guitarist, Tazzy. With a complete line-up they went into the studio and recorded their first demo. It was one of those magical moments in the history of glam. It featured three songs, "Forever", "Something they don't know" and "I know what you're thinkin'", this demo alone should have earned them a major deal.
Just typing these songtitles brings a tear to my eye. Anyway, during this period Tazzy left the band, QUEENY BLAST POP was once again a fourpiece. After one and a half years of permanent performing at L.A.'s sleazy and unfameous clubs, the band went into the studio once again. This second three song demo is, believe it or not, almost as good as the first but was never released since the band didn't like Punky Jean's vocals on it.
Lil' Dee now left the band to join GOD ZOO, an excellent glampoppunk band with an alternativ edge. As far as I know, they're still existing. Lil' Dee was replaced with Audrey but misery loves company and more problems struck the band. Punky Jean was too keen on heroin and had to go, Terri filled the empty spot.
During this period QUEENY BLAST POP had changed, they had cut their hair, toned down the glamimage. The Queenies had developed into a punkband. The name was changed to THE DISTRACTIONS which suited the bands new direction better. I thought the story of one of the best but most illfated glambands ended there but it doesn't! QUEENY BLAST POP is back, Lesli and Pepper with two new members.
They recently played the Coconut Teazser and they're currently in the studio. QUEENY BLAST POP is back and this time the world better be ready!
