The B-52's Kate Pierson Releasing Solo Album In February, 2015

Kate: Still fab in her 60s

Kate: Still fab in her 60s

rock nyc’s resident B-52’s fanatic Michael Malone must be salivating as he reads this the great Queen Of The Beehive Kate Pierson is releasing a solo album. One of the most distinctive personalities in rock and roll, if Kate didn’t exist John Winters would have had to invent her.  So over here we all excited to see what Kate can do solo (but hope she won’t be solo for long) though this is written with Sia, yes “Titanium”, and whiile I like her I don’t like her very much.

 

Michael said “Obviously I’m a biased audience, but the track & video teased today for “mister sister” featuring Fred Armisten & Alyon Palmer was one the best songs I’ve heard in a while. It combines lyrics that are an homage to cross dressing, Kate’s evocative & full sound with a very catchy guitar riff. But, that’s just me!”

Esther Gin, a friend of tyhe B-52s from when they moved to Woodstock in the 80s added: ” think the video would have been better with actual queens, but the song is FIERCE!”

Here is the PR release and also the first song, Mike is happy.

Kate Pierson – iconic voice and founding member of the B52s, punk, new wave, genre-defying band has announced her debut solo record Guitars and Microphones, released February 17 via Lazy Meadow Music/Kobalt Label Services. Produced by Tim Anderson (Ima Robot) and featuring Nick Valensi of The Strokes on several tracks, Kate collaborated on songwriting with Sia who also executive produced the album.
 
Album opener “Throw Down the Roses” is an empowering humanist anthem, maintaining that one can embrace the world, radiate positivity and still kick butt when necessary. Upbeat title track, “Guitars and Microphones” plays upon a galactic pop groove. The lush “Bring Your Arms” is an immediately infectious synth-pop jam with a move to the groove environmental theme. Kate’s soaring emotive vocals on “Mister Sister“ is a poetic love letter of the power of transformation – – welcoming the freedom to live (and dance) and daring to transcend gender boundaries. “Mister Sister” is available on iTunes as an instant-grat MP3 w/ Guitars and Microphones pre-order now!”

Along with being a B52, Pierson has collaborated with The Ramones, Iggy Pop, David Byrne, REM and Gnarls Barkley. Guitars and Microphones marries party rock, psychedelia and socio-political punk. Revered for her anthemic pop chops, Kate’s songs are rife with girl group wit, drama—rejecting stereotypes and preconceived ideas at every turn. This is humanism and feminism out for a real good time.
