“SONG FOR EWE”
with MIMI STAR of MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT
“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day.
Today it’s a brazen bass warrior. She could be straight out of Mad Max (way, way beyond the thunderdome) or Bond’s next evil villain (beyond the Thunderball). She is the definition of kickass. She’s played in psych noisehawks The Warlocks, and currently she’s stealing the show on stage with diehard industrialists My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. She’s been a fan of Velvet Sheep’s “song for ewe” and I am a fan of hers, it’s Japan’s very own Mimi Star!
Mimi has been a keen supporter, so I was keen to repay the favour with her own song choice, but first I just wanted to check in with what she’s up to right this second…
“Now I am playing with veteran industrial electric band My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult” . An East Coast tour is coming up next month…”
…Also another exciting thing is finally i have extra time for side project ( i’ve been busy since moving to France and moving back to U.S.), starting to jam with my old band mate, it is more psych rock and feeling i am back to my roots. excited to play talented musicians.”
Ps. Mimi, I was gonna put in the Warlocks link but it’s geo-locked, or should that be geo-Warlocked in the UK…so peeps who like Velvet Sheeps you will just have to imagine the seismic rumble of Mimi’s bass emanating from the arid Austin, Texas…
Mimi is always on the dusty interstate, always busy with the bass, but what’s her current ear-worm? Without further ado, it’s over to her “song for ewe”…
“I choose The Black Angels “Young Men Dead” –
Any song from the “Passover” album is very groovy and dark but I especially like this one, every time I listen to this song, it makes me head bang!
We played with them a couple of times while I was in the psychedelic band The Warlocks.
I don’t know how to explain but the guitar riffs are very voodoo, bluesy and catchy at the same time and stick in your mind. This band’s guitar player plays such tasteful riffs.”
THANKS MIMI! VERY DARK, TRES COOL.
