If “glam goth” could be personified into one band, self-proclaimed “intergalactic space sluts” Robbie Quine & The Barbarellatones are definitely it. With their very catchy gothabilly sound and humorous lyrics, they definitely poke fun at themselves and the goth scene. However, their list of accolades reminds the listener that The Barbarellatones are no joke. In addition to receiving radio play and glowing reviews from many scene magazines, their song “Fire of Love” was used in the “Luxury Lounge” episode of The Sopranos.
In the end, The Barbarellatones really must be seen to be experienced fully. According to Robbie, they feel strongly that rock music should be sleazy and glamorous. And baby, they bring it. What else can you say about a band that covers “Time Warp” from Rocky Horror Picture Show that well? All the way to the hilariously catchy and almost anthemic “Grab Your Ankles,” The Barbarellatones deliver.
