CHLOE BLACK’S ‘GROUPIE’: I WANT TO CELEBRATE THE ‘BAD GIRLS’

Chloe black1Inspired by her own experiences of the sunset strip rock scene, LA strip club Frank Zappa’s Laurel Canyon, Terry Reid’s 1970 documentary about Groupies and Kenneth Anger’s ‘Scorpio Rising’, exciting dark pop princess Chløë Black, shares ‘Groupie’, a smartly catchy ode on anti slut-shaming issue.

The track is also a splendidly frank and fetching homage to 1970’s rebellion and sexual liberation icons like Pamela Des Barres and Cynthia Plaster Caster.Chloe black2Describing herself as a “fatalistically romantic lover of monochrome with a French twist”, Chloe explains: “I like to imagine them as Russ Myer style heroines. Dangerous and free. Slut-shaming is very much a big issue worldwide, even amongst the privileged. There were of course male groupies as well during the 70’s, and seeing how much courage it must have taken to be ‘out’ during such a homophobic time, they too are my heroines. I want to celebrate the ‘bad girls’. ‘Good girls’ don’t make history.”
