As lead singer of the Los Angeles flameout trashmasters, Killer Crows, back in the eighties, Texas Terri Laird achieved a high degree of infamy and respect. And the mission to meld The Stones with The Stooges continues with the new, improved Texas Terri and the Stiff Ones.
Texas Terri and the Stiff Ones first full length release entitled Eat Shit features 12 surefire tracks including favorites like "Situation", "Oh Yeah", "Burgers and Fries (Youre Not Alive)" and "Holy Ghost". No rookie to the punk force, Texas Terri and El Don Hubbard (Demon Boy) on guitar have graced many stages with their patented dynamic live act, opening for several notable national groups such as X, The Dickies, Zeke, and The Dwarves. Voted Best Hollywood Band and Best Psychotic Band by Rock City News, nominated for Best Female Vocalist by Flipside Magazine, and Best Punk Rock Band by L. A. Weekly, Texas Terri reels in unsuspecting onlookers with her southern sex-kitten charisma, then growls at them with NY-style punk attitude leaving the masses scurrying for safety! So treat your nerve endings to titilating pleasure and pain courtesy of Texas Terri and The Stiff Ones.
