Good 'ol Rock n' Roll
"The Wild Ones will take you back to better times with their retro garage punk sound (think Shangri-Las meets The Ramones)." -KZSC
The Kamikaze Queens are Berlin Punk Cabaret! Inspired by the mayhem of 1920's Berlin and the city's infamous hedonism that lives on today, they've created a sexy, theatrical live performance that's uniquely their own.
Musically their style ranges from early punk rock and soulful garage to dirty jazz and punkabilly, smothered in reverb, topped off with Spooky Waltzes, and served up with burlesque and cabaret.
Fronted by two dazzling American female singers, Trinity Sarratt and Mad Kate take turns at being sweet & sour, dancing, kicking, and playing percussion, together with one of Germany's hottest Guitar Players, Tex Morton, Acrobatic Upright Bass Player "Luscious Lloyd" Clark from Upstate New York, and Nico "Lipps" Lippolis from Bella Italia on Drums, the Kamikaze Queens live experience is "like a suicide pilot dive- bombing your Rock'n'Roll senses" ... and pushing up daisies.
Since 2006,they have toured all over Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Sweden, and the USA at SXSW 2009. From Punk Clubs to Theaters, Psycho Shows to Heavy Metal Festivals, to the Tiniest Bar in Texas, the Kamikaze Queens conquer and titillate any and every situation with their unique and one of a kind ensemble, made in Berlin.
