You've got to hear:
BAD SISTER
 
click above to listen (real audio)

To paraphrase Lester Bangs, "They were BETTER than The Fugs". Much has been written about bringing back rock, but Albino Combover is here to finish the job.

Sissy Neal and Hank "Big Double" Gordan met in 1999, while both we're stranded at a truck stop with broken down cars. They met again in Austin six months later and have been a load two-piece rock ride ever since that show no signs of slowing.

FW: Okay, you are a two piece rock band, guitar and drums, boy and girl. Sounds familiar.

HG: Now let me clear something up, Sissy's all lady and I'm as man as they come, so we're not a boy and girl combo. Seriously though, we love Jack and Meg's sibling/divorcee act, but let me put an end to any questions about us. We fuck all the time.

SN: That's right we do, Hank.

FW: How do you feel about being assigned to save rock and roll?

HG: Pretty good. We're up for it. When we're on the road, playing everywhere from piers to parties to prisons, I feel like rock and roll is breeding. Just the looks we get, we're making America horny every night and that's what's gonna save rock and roll. A lot of bands bring raw power to the stage but Sissy and I bring amatory.

SN: You all should really play our record in the bedroom, or if you don't, you better get a little nasty wherever you are.

FW: What's the name "Albino Combover" all about?

HG: When Sissy and I met at that truckstop, there was a guy there who was white as biscuit gravy. He was an albino. He had this awfully thin hair swept from one ear up over his bald skull to the other ear. It was a heck of a sad hairdo. Sissy and I kinda laughed and then we both caught a little fire in each other's eyes. So we thought we'd name our rock band after the man who turned us on to each other for the first time.
