A night of Post Wave pop music STARRING your charming and handsome friend, yours truly Benjie Loveless with his "big" fancy guitar and ugly words never sung truer. The Daily Lion cultivates an angular flower whose scent creeps upon you like a vase full of hot water suddenly poured into your tepid bath. Gently but forcibly. The Redettes join us in our evenings endeavors with allusions to a past innocent era, a harder faster era.

“The sound of “Bastards Bitch” changes from song to song like the work of the Velvet Underground, who were capable of music-box gentility and burning fireballs of noise on the same record. Also like the Velvet Underground, a subtle punk-rock sensibility underlies each track. Benjie Loveless himself sings like a cross between Nick Cave and Roy Orbison with a touch of Johnny Cash. The exquisite quality of his songwriting is staggering, and consistently so from beginning to end. Loveless names as artistic influences a great ream of legendary artists, but the ones who seem to have lent the most to “Bastards Bitch” are underground heroes Tom Waits, Guided by Voices, and Pixies. The album also shares the versatility of Ween, and the poetry and sonorousness of Leonard Cohen. It is a mature record, one that comes with an ocean of passion and an equal amount of intellect. These attributes are perhaps surpassed only by the artist's vast, sweeping musical capacities and flawless taste.”
