“Shape your image and we’ll all be greedy”

Philip HarrisMusic, Videos0 Comments

I seem to remember hating Daisy Chainsaw‘s Love Your Money when it came out (way back in 1991). It’s noisy and on the surface pretty dumb but I was also fascinated with it and ended up buying the single. I honestly don’t remember why. Maybe as a joke.

Nine years later, I bought an album called Taxidermy by a band called Queen Adreena (later known as Queenadreena). I don’t remember what prompted me to buy it, I think I just really liked the cover but I loved it. Eventually, I discovered that Daisy Chainsaw and Queenadreena were both formed by singer KatieJane Garside and Crispin Gray. Which led me back to Daisy Chainsaw and their album, Eleventeen. And by that point I was finally ready to admit that I actually quite liked Love Your Money.

I listened to Eleventeen again this week and although it’s not as good as their Queenadreena incarnation, it has its moments.
