GLITTER TRASH / Bio

Jenna Talia - Front
Paul Grace Smith - Guitar/Backing Vocals
Bobby Dreg - Bass/Backing Vocals
James "Dirtbag" Stevenson - Drums
GLITTER TRASH is a classic Detroit Punk band originating from the collapsed post-industrial streets of the Motor City. The band brings the audience hard driving rock reminiscent of their local proto-punk roots in both The Stooges and The MC5. They also mix in New York's late 1970's CBGB's scene and London's glam and punk sound. Glitter Trash has a wild, outrageous and spontaneous live show, often drawing a wide range of comparisons to the aggressive stage shows of The Dead Boys, The Plasmatics, The Sex Pistols and The New York Dolls combined visually with David Bowie, early Tubes and Wendy O. Their stripped down music presentation and approach to their songs harken back to simpler times when larger-than-life personalities, great music and energetic shows were the status quo.

The band formed in 2010 and has gained a loyal following all over the globe, with accolades coming from both fans and media.
They have toured throughout the USA, will be playing Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, England for the third straight year in 2016 and released their first critically acclaimed album, "Wreckage", in 2011. in 2016, the band is finishing off a 7" vinyl release of two songs ("Crucify Me" and "Material Damage") off their upcoming full album due for release in 2016. They will also be releasing a joint 7" split 45 with the Dogs from LA, being released on New Fortune Records in Detroit in summer of 2016.
