THE JENNY CLINKSCALES BAND: Mind If We Join You?From the hot little planet known as Albuquerque, New Mexico comes The Jenny Clinkscales Band. Formed in 1996 by ex-east coast rockers Jenny Sincero and Amy Clinkscales, TJCB is a strange brew of 70's glam rock, 80's pop, and a squirrelly genius all their own.
Their stuff ranges from eccentric to redneck, poignant to ill-mannered and sticks in your mind like a meat cleaver - as one enlightened source put it, "Wow, you guys can really play for a couple of girls."
With an EP entitled "Mind If We Join You?" and a huge following wherever they choose to lead, TJCB are proving once and for all that just because they dress like drag queens doesn't mean they can't rock like pigs.
"Their debut, an expertly produced six-song EP titled, 'Mind If We Join You?' begs listeners to question, 'Why the hell didn't you join us sooner?' Over the course of a half-dozen songs, TJCB wax poetic on the mysteries of S&M, boys who are afraid of smart girls, and several other topics that haven't exactly been rock's mainstays. But the songs are so well-written, so perfectly executed, that the EP is destined for infamy. The message is clear: Do you want to rock? Fuck Yeah!" -- The Weekly Alibi 2/99
"Quite possibly the best looking band in America" -- Static Magazine 2/99
"...the group has a power that few bands are willing to wield these days." -- The Albuquerque Journal
"Does the live show - equal parts glam, cock and shock rock melded to the powerful dueling stage personas of the band's frontwomen - come across on the CD? The answer is a surprising and resounding (to borrow a TJCB song title), Fuck Yeah!...'Mind If We Join you?' ranks at the top of the local list. And if this is but a taste of LPs yet to come, then hold on to your fishnet stockings." -- The Weekly Alibi 12/98
