    Holly Stephey Talks to Labretta Suede &The Motel 6

    in Entertainment

    Labretta Suede and The Motel 6 are a bunch of crazed rock ‘n’ rollers with a reckless set and a show of music and outfits you could just LICK! With a 50′s rock ‘n’ roll influence, a twang and some dirge, Labretta Suede and The Motel 6 are an ass whippin’, high kickin’, low down rockin’ an-a-reelin’, high-class outfit. Formed in 2005 in Auckland, New Zealand with influences wide throughout the decades before them of damn good music. This band brings back the true essence of roots based rock n roll, punk and rockabilly blues.Fronted by bad girl tease Labretta Suede, with her sexy gritty performances, full frontal outfits and irresistible, irreverent, deep rich vocals that simply undress and unleash you while, right-hand flesh eating Johnny Moondog makes you completely unhinged with his wild tone, crazed reverb and mind bending psychedelic distortion and sneer. These two unruly and insatiable founding members are the essence behind this world traveled jungle of juju strange.Complimented by their original New Zealand counterparts, Chris ‘Bumbo’ Kemp  and JayL Vodanovich  who kept their heads cool to lay down the slosh, so as not to drown.This melding of nostalgic, yet originally infused swagger was at the fore front of bad-ass rock n roll car culture, b -grade art, cinema and burlesque in their faraway shores of Aotearoa (New Zealand). However, feeling the fever to spread the disease long and far from the way down under pools of volcanic laha, they relocated to the other side of the planet. That’s right, to New York City.Seeking to find just the right kinda strange to fit their new line-up. Cue, Max Speed . A man of 50′s super hero physic and proportions yet with dainty ankles for high-heel wearing and stocking steeling. However, all would not be complete without drummer Capt’n Gerry. So, the new line-up of fiends was born. http://www.labrettasuede.com/wordpress/

    Xpressions Radio ft. Suede Cursive

    in Poetry

    I started writing about a year ago, and have kept going ever since. I’ve featured at Lyrical Exchange at Queen Bees Art and Culture center, where I perform every Tuesday.
    I am inspired by whatever the Lord lays on my heart so there is really no telling what I will write about next.
    I’m a young, 19 year old poet just looking to express myself.
