Queen Adreena - Taxidermy (2000)

Katie Jane Garside first made noise in the early '90s in the U.K. post-punk outfit Daisy Chainsaw. Her rag doll look of torn dresses besmirched in mud made her vulnerability a quick target for the media. Unfortunately, Daisy Chainsaw only released one album with Garside's vocal theatrics; she left the band in 1992 under pressures of being in the limelight. Eight years later, she and former Chainsaw guitarist Crispin Grey joined forces for Queen Adreena with bassist Orson Wajih and drummer Billy Freedom.

Though you could never accuse Daisy Chainsaw of not having a unique and interesting creativity, Queen Adreena shows a sense of maturity that shows in the songs that only time could bring. Haunting, brooding, with a strange out of control sound that sounds like it's matured from their previous incarnate. At times, the music is eerie & disquieting, but there are times when the singer's voice draws out hidden beauty from the songs. (Excellent Fan site, check the pics!) (New? Official site)

You can't go wrong with Katie Jane really can you? I posted the LoveSickPleasure EP not so long ago so thanks for filling in the gaps with Queen Adreena and the rest of the Daisy Chainsaw EP's - I'll grab them aswell. Appreciated.
