If you are a connoisseur of the LeEMS Bean RSS feed, then you already know that Kayt Ahnberg and myself have penned a song with the full intention of playing and recording it ourselves. In the mean time the Buffalo Chucks sing it you in an eight page color comic on the Drawing Board!
Aren’t they great?! I, maybe consciously, modeled Lola on a Dolly Parton/Christina Aguilera love child. Marx is totally Rosario Dawson. And I’m not sure I had an image in mind when I was drawing Vertigo. Her attitude is modeled on a dear friend of mine, but not her looks.
So, I like things like JEM and the Holograms, and the massively under-appreciated Josie and the Pussycats. There’s something about girl bands battling evil that is too fun not to love. Thus, my own girl band, who may or may not end up fighting evil: The Buffalo Chucks. Right now they are kind of like Josie in an Archie and Jughead crowd scene, but just you wait!
And, in the meantime, check out a webcomic that embodies all that too: Band vs. Band by Kathleen Jacques. You will not be disappointed.
