Spotlight – 31: Bridezilla
They couldn’t play live for shit when I saw them at ATP in January, but neither could Mazzy Star back when I last saw them in 1990, now I think about it. Anyway, these Sydney ladies are way more Opal than Mazzy Star, and all the better for it. At least, they are when they forget their infatuation with Chan Marshall. The violin and clattering percussion certainly help.
I believe their singer Holly Sidewinder (pictured above) is the goddaughter of a former band-mate of mine, but we won’t hold that against her. Some of the songs on their debut album are really quite enticing.
Damn. No sooner do I start one list, then I find myself having to amend it…no wait. That’s to the good.
