Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers - Teenage and Torture

Knitting Factory Records, 2011

"Shilpa Ray and her Happy Hookers play grinding blues, sleazy jazz, and bracing rock with punk immediacy and pop appeal. The result? Something like a vulgar Ella Fitzgerald, channeling Nick Cave and PJ Harvey, and singing her songs before a wall of distortion and thunderous, pounding rhythms. Live shows are already a notorious commodity — and audiences have been screaming as loud as the band does."

On tour with Acid Mothers Temple(seriously one of the best live bands you'll ever see) right now
