Tina and The Total Babes
Not since the early '80s, when girls and their groups -- Holly and the Italians, Nikki and the Corvettes, Katrina and the Waves -- ruled the radio has such a sound been heard. The Total Babes are led by Bay Area Garage queen Tina Lucchesi (Trashwomen, Bobbyteens), who grew up on a steady diet of girl-fronted L.A. Power Pop. Tina resurrects songs loaded with vivid images of bad girls looking for a good time. Backed by the powerhouse of the Total Babes (a trio of Minneapolis Power Pop pedigrees, featuring members of Candygirl and the Magnolias), Tina lays out unshakeable songs of lust, heartbreak, and tough-girl attitude.
