Lifting The Lid On The Rockbrat Treasure Chest: Voodoo Queens Tee-Shirt (1994)


Being a girl band geek lifer, it was only a matter of time before I cast my attention on London’s Voodoo Queens. I recall – upon landing in the UK around that time, asking a mate to clue me in on any decent she-powered outfits. Cross-referencing his recommendation list with the NME gig guide – I penciled in an upcoming Saturday night show at London School of Economics for a band called the Voodoo Queens. Yes yes I was impressed. Not as ‘to-the-point’ as others in the riot-grrl stable, the Voodoo Queens wrote some cool tunes with an abundance of melody – and combined quirk with early 90’s grrl-angst to great effect. What an injustice that bands are grouped under the same blanket, cos they were far better than many others who flew the riot-grrl flag. I bought this shirt at one of the Voodoo Queens gigs I attended in 93/94. Fun days.
