Dirty White Lies
Hot and dirty rock and roll lead by axe-weilding, fire-breathing mob-boss mamma Sassy Kraimspri. Her gang of thugs sways and thumps along with her on their uncompramising rock and roll crime spree to the top. Pop-sensibilities choked on Norse Black Metal roots, mixed with a love for 40s blues and old school punk make for the tantalizing mix that is Sassy Kraimspri's sound. Born in on the raging South Coast of Norway and raised in the punk rock world of underground New York City, Sassy then spent six years slaving away at University and living it up in Sydney's rock and roll centre- already an international musician before her first full-length release. A gig veteran at 26, she has countless gems of live moments under her belt, most shiny and most recently: CBGB's (New York, USA '06), North By North East (Toronto, Canada '06) and the Quart Festival (Norway '07- notably sharing a bill with The Who, fellow Norwegian rock gods Turbonegro, the Beastie Boys and Juliette and the Licks). known for her sexy and energetic live show and the her band's tight, hard-hitting backing. All this has been punctuated by fabulous smaller gigs here and there all over Australia, Norway and the US. She is now ready with her debut album, 'Dirty White Lies' and she has assembled a gang of worthy and spree-hungry thugs. Together they are gearing up for an early 2008 release through her own record label, Lady Luck Records in Norway, and a late 2007 release through October Party Records in the world's most populated country, China! December sees her pick up and fly back to old haunts in Australia, a gig here, a gig there, and a good old fashioned shrimp on the baaaabie with a noice cold tallie. Ladies and Gentlemen, we ain't seen nothin' yet. The Thugs: Ms. Sassy herself: watch out boys and girls, this lady don't discriminate, you mess with her, you mess with fire. Lead vocals, baritone and rhythm guitars. Tricky Dicky Downfall: (Live Lead Guitar) recruited to Norway from Sydney for his shredding and tapping abilities while in legendary thrash punk band Smash n' Grab. He enjoys sewing and picking fights on the weekend. His favorite sayings include: 'I'm gonna stab you in the neck with a screwdriver', and 'I'll smash your fu@#ing c#$nt in '. What a charmer. Tavanga: backing vocals, booty shaking Norwegian woods-nymph. Hanna bass bandit: Swedish Bass sensation, violinist, hair-styler extraordinare. Drop Dead Fred: brooding firebreathing skins-beater and iron-welder.
