Track 11 - Black Girls 

"Get Off"

Ask anyone who caught the band at Style Weekly's Earth Day Festival event: Black Girls' potent blend of snuff rock — what they call their theatrical, glam-infused Southern funk rock — can be just as entertaining in the open air as it is in a dank nightclub. The five-piece Girls, all white boys who reportedly met in a convenience store (buying snuff?), recently released their debut CD on Worthless Junk Records (the band has a split 7-inch with label mates No BS Brass Band on tap for this summer) and copped Style's readers' poll as Richmond's best rock band. Featured here is an alternate version of Black Girls' signature vamp, "Get Off," recorded at Sound of Music studios.
