Sleaze Queens

The hard-rocking women of the L.A.-based Betty Blowtorch prove their mettle with Are You Man Enough?

Record done, it's business as usual for Betty Blowtorch, with day jobs ranging from work at a Melrose clothing store (Butthole) to a position as vice president of the Hollywood-based duplication house Lightning Dubbs (Molish).

And though Butthole has fielded other offers ("I was asked to audition for Hole. Their label called me like five times last year, but I was like, 'Nah. I know too much. I'm not goin' there!'"), she's happily cast her lot with her Blowtorch sisters. While the foursome would love to jump on the coattails of like-minded lineups, including Monster Magnet or Buckcherry, those bands are trying to grab onto bigger coattails themselves. So Betty Blowtorch's most recent gambit was to try to hit the road with another down 'n' dirty buzz band populated by fearless femmes fatales.

"We sent Nashville Pussy a blonde strip-o-gram, because we wanted to tour with them in Europe," explains Butthole. "We haven't heard back yet. I think we'll just be sending out a lot of strip-o-grams this year," she concludes with a resigned grin. "At least until we get a manager!"
