Gothic cello band with fluctuating membership centred around founder and first chair Melora Creager. The band's gimmick is that they perform in Edwardian period underwear.
Have you got the new Rasputina album?
Rasputina is a really weird, incredibly talented gothic
band with 2 girls on cellos and a hairy man on drums.
Noted for the strange ramblings of lead singer Melora Creager (who toured with Nirvana
on their last tour) before each song and dressing up in Victorian outfits for concerts.
Example includes sample of mad ramblings.
“The government is going to instigate a new national identification policy, and it’s not the standard ID card, it's a little grain of rice with your name carved into it by some Mexican that is inserted under the flesh of your arm. And I think it’s such an exciting idea that I'm gonna be the first in line to get it. It's so cute-sounding.”
One of Melora's ramblings from a Rasputina concert.
