with the boys, you just don´t see the Japanthers slanking around. A fevorsome guitarry night, with Matt on Bass, Ian on drums, - aerobic, chaotic, sporty and overall very sweaty, why we did a costume change, out of our spectacular Manish Aurora´s, 4 songs into the set and then the voodoo took over and it was body sculptures assending the stage. What a pleasure it was to be back playing live after, 2 years of djing the globe and so many great friends backstage, thanks for making the night electric!
JapanthersIan Vanek/ Matt Reilly, Chicks Alex and Melissa plus the new chicks on the block Francesca Thyssen and Alanna Heiss!
Yes it was a smashing of drums, guitars and objekt instruments, we took on the sexy Japanthers and met our match!can't wait to get to Iceland, where Francessca is planning the next Super Group cult meeting!

a snap shot by tracey, from last night´s play time back stage, after the show. As Melissa was stranded in Abijan with Nadine and couldn´t make it to the show, I decided to fight the volcano live on stage, with Chicks; Anat Ben-David, Lady Gla Gla and Nad Mika and we won! with jam sessions, electronic drumming on the "COSland spds" with sexy samples, spoken words, readings, dancing and for the first time, live on stage, Lady Gla Gla presented the video-audition she created for Frances National television, to become Frances new TV weather woman......the crowd died, so loved it! (scrol down to view the video) Was almost hard to keep the show´s escalation going after the Gla Gla screening!!! But we made it, delivering something cosmic and delightfully chaotic in a very controlled, chicks kind of way! We stired the ingrediants together and we were boiling and sweating, make-up dripping all over our computer keyboards....... also thank you to Dr Anat, who sang new songs, from her project in Margate.
Thanks Tracey and Frank for always putting on our concerts in Holland and huge support over the last 14 years!
PS: Since we found Lady Gla Gla, on the web after seeing her video audition to be Frances Weather Woman, we´ve now invited her to join CHicks.
