Helium.com Flying High On Fashion Slaves!
Thanks to: Roberto Alvarez-Galloso for the kind words.
“The only difference is that they write and perform their own material compared with today’s mainstream music whose conglomerates dictate the music to the artist.” Read more.
The Fashion Slaves respect Roberto’s spreading the word.
The Fashion Slaves, c’est à première vue le fruit d’une recette déjà bien connue: une blonde sexy et énergique (Emily Jayne) assortie d’un groupe de garçons luttant tant bien que mal contre le triste statut de faire-valoir. Debby Harrie, alias Blondie, et Chrissie Hinde, leader des Pretenders, sont toutes deux dépositaires du brevet de la working girl dominante du rock.
Mais à l’écoute, The Fashion Slaves sont aussi une nouvelle facette de la très bouillonnante scène rock californienne.

When Principal Rooney announced over the P.A. system that the Leap Year Day’s assembly was moved to the gymnasium, and we had to leave our cell phones in our homeroom, I was sure the “Foo Fighters” rumors were true. I was wrong. It was a rock concert, but no Foo Fighters. A band I’d never heard of was going to perform. The gym was packed. No one wanted to go back to class. So we all stayed for the show. The Fashion Slaves were the performers. Once the Slaves started playing, everyone forgot about The Foo Fighters.
I had never heard of the Fashion Slaves, but now I love them. Emily Jayne is the coolest singer I’ve ever seen, and she plays a mean guitar. The show started with some amazing guitar playing by Eric Din, who is also a member of the Uptones, my favorite Ska band. Emily Jayne and Eric Din are joined by Engine 88 bass player, Eric Knight, and drummer Pete D’Amato from The Agent Deadlies.
All their songs are great, I especially loved the song about Styrofoam. The show was over way too fast. When Emily Jayne closed the show with “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” no one wanted to leave. I can’t wait to see The Fashion Slaves again.
