Music Video Fridays - The Cocktail Slippers

Who are The Cocktail Slippers? Why only the finest all-female rock band ever to come out of Norway. That's who they are. And hey...they have a blog! Neat.

I've only recently heard of them. I like to listen to Little Steven's Underground Garage on XM Radio, and apparently he is a fan. Because I've heard them on there a few times now. And they are signed to his Wicked Cool label, of course. They are a little bubblegum for my usual tastes, but I kinda dig 'em.

The first video, well I'm not sure it's an official video really, is a great introduction to the band. Because they introduce the band in a sort of video diary. Hey! It's for a song called "St. Valentine's Day Massacre" off of their soon to be released next album. Little Steven makes an appearance as well. Reminds me a bit of the retro 60's stuff that Debbie Harry would do occasionally with Blondie.



The next video is a song called "Go Get It" and it's very catchy.



And finally we have "Starlet Cole". The organ solo in the middle is a bit unfortunate, but I think I really dig this band. Nothing too exotic, but great licks and great looks. What more could a fanboy want?



Have a great weekend!

can't see the video at work so i'll take your word. Are the as good as the 55,6,7,8's

B.E. Earl said...

Jimmy - and there it is! Well done, sir.

Michelle - tell me 'bout it.

2abes - You know, when I first saw Kill Bill I thought the 5,6,7,8's were Shonen Knife...a band I was already a fan of. But they rocked. This band is very different though. You don't have to be into surf guitar to enjoy them. :)

Thanks for the heads up, Earl. I'm gonna get 'em.

Kate said...

Does anybody else hear a little Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles in the singer?

Good stuff! Thanks for heads up.

Slyde said...

Heff said...

Their guitars are hotter than they are...

B.E. Earl said...

MikeB - a little play on words...I like it.

Kate - Yes! Especially in the second song.

Slyde - you should be used to that.

Heff - I'll defer to your judgment. I know nothing about guitars. I think the lead singer is kinda hawt though.

Zibbs - nice.

Uncool - that's a great program, isn't it?

I'm glad to hear people talking about Little Steven's Underground Garage. I live in Italy, so listening to him on the internet makes me feel connected to the "real world." Plus, I've picked up some great music there that I would have otherwise missed completely.

B.E. Earl said...

MikeB - I've only been listening recently, but I love it. Very diverse.

kiki said...

you like it because they're hot norwegians...
which is a perfect reason

O.G. said...

You know I just started doing this on Monday - I swear I didn't take your idea, I have been way behind on blog reading and didn't know you already do it.

Enjoy my Music Mondays

B.E. Earl said...

Kiki - am I that transparent? ;)

O.G. - It's all good. Besides, I stole it from someone else intentionally. :)
