Synthesis Band You’ve Never Heard of Band of the Day: 99 Cent Whore

99 cent whore

You’re either going to love our band of the day, or hate it with a bloody passion. The jury’s still out for me, but at the moment I’m leaning toward the former. This act, 99 Cent Whore, featuring actress Mary Birdsong (who plays Deputy Kimball on Comedy Central’s Reno 911!) revs up the schlock and shock factor of its titular frontwoman’s profession. Seems her life didn’t turn out exactly how she thought it would: hence, “99 Cent Whore,” her name and vocation.
The music is macho-rock/pop, full of fist-pumping,headband sweating potential, complete with metal pick squeals and thick-head posturing. the whole this is…well…it’s a bit grating. But from what I gather, it’s not about the music as much as it is the performance and the punch lines, a few of which got me when I wasn’t expecting. You know what? Come to think of it, the jury’s in. I’m liking (licking?) me some 99 Cent Whore.

Here’s a visual sampling for your earballs.
