Music: Exclusive stream of Star & Dagger’s debut album
Star & Dagger are Dava She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell guitarist), Sean Yseult (White Zombie bassist) and vocalist Von Hesseling, described in the PR – with unerring accuracy, it turns out – as a hybrid of Tina Turner, Cherie Currie and Anita Pallenberg.
Here’s what we had to say about Tomorrowland Blues in our review in Classic Rock mag:
This debut overflows with sleazy blues-rock and bursts with trailer-park strut; it sounds exactly like the girls were produced – and seduced – by Russ Meyer. She Wolf’s guitar growls like a chained-up Alsatian; Yseult’s bass rumbles like an idling Mack Truck; Hesseling’s vocals can best be described as ravishing – in every sense of the word. As you can imagine, this is very good stuff indeed.
Ten trash-laden tracks, then, climaxing with Your Mother Was A Grifter, a tale of a man-eatin’ vixen who ‘drained them dry and then gave them the shove’. An experience that’s much like listening to this album, in fact…
