There are a lot of bands that try to replicate the work of the greats that came before them – to recycle the sounds of early rockabilly, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. The Fabulous Minx is not one of them.
When 2012 RAW musicians of the year Shake Shake went on hiatus in 2012, guitarist Ryan Daly and drummer Noah Sears embraced their musical Id and formed The Fabulous Minx. This guitar and drum duo draws inspiration from the savage, seedy side of early rock ‘n’ roll to create a sound that is all their own.
“There are a lot of people who put on an old suit, throw some grease in their hair, and try to play songs exactly the way music sounded back then,” Daly said. “But who wants to do anything exactly the way it’s been done before?”
“They take away all the sex appeal, all the danger of that early music. Those audiences were a half-step from coming completely unhinged. That energy, that’s what we’re looking for,” said Sears.
