      • "And they can't rock as hard as the boys"

      They fought for the right to vote, they burned their bra's in the streets and now fast forward to the year 2001. We've got Davina McCall and Sarah Cox whose idea of feminism is to shout louder and drink more than the next bloke. Ultimately Kittie face the same problem in that they would much rather have that macho male braggadocios rock & roll attitude of sex, drugs and rock & roll than actually play to their feminine traits. Looking back to the mid 90s it seems that the only band who have actually got it right in modern times were Echobelly with their unique brand of politics, intelligence and sexual imagery. "Oracle" moves us up a gear from the debut "Spit" although if we are perfectly honest Kittie were never about the music. They were always there to provide a bit of glamour in the male dominated rock field and with the sacking of bass player Fallon earlier in the year they're about as glamorous as the sleeper blokes of yesteryear. Its only on "Safe" when Kittie dare to bare their souls and show a trace of genius with a dark gothic piano ballad reminiscent of Muse colliding with Skunk Anansie. Elsewhere all the girls have to offer are clichés even down to the song titles ("Mouthful Of Poison", "Severed", "Wolves") taken wholesale from the dictionary of rock. In the live arena Kittie really can compete with some of the top rock bands around but sadly "Oracle" is one of the most forgettable rock albums released in recent years. If this is supposed to be a step in the right direction then it can't be long before Kittie are culled from Sony's corporate ladder and replaced with something a bit more marketable. If your looking for female rock with attitude you can't go wrong with Sugacoma...Kittie with added vitamin C and a little sparkle. Alex McCann

      In the late 1990's Four women decided to form a metal group. They didn't care what people thought of them and they weren't going to be sold out after one album like some bands!!! This band was called Kittie. In 2000 they released thier album Spit named after the first song on the album. They have released some singles also but all come from the album. Kittie are: MoRGaN LaNDeR: Main vocals/Guitar FaLLoN BoWMaN: Backing vocals/Guitar TaLeNa aTFieLD: Bass/Backing vocals MeRCeDeS LaNDeR: Drums ...ummm...looking at that list is also the order from sexiest to (still sexy) but least sexy. (I know that degrading women, but many women say it too!) Morgan is about 5'5", shortish black hair and a nice cleavage. Fallon is slightly shorter than morgan with slightly dark skin. Talena is also slightly shorter than morgan and has shoulder length hair, also with a VERY nice cleavage. Mercedes I very tall compaired to the others, very long light brown hair. A nice cleavage too but I don't like it that much. Now that I've upset every woman reading this by being a sexist pig I go onto thier music. Kitties music is a mixture of heavy-ish metal/nu-metal and in some places black metal. Morgan does good seductive singing that you won't find in many places as there are only one or two female singers in metal! I shall be buying ever CD they produce, going to any gig that they go on in the UK and generaly that sort of thing! I love this band, (not as much as KoRn, but getting there!)
