Ridiculous B!tch (AKA Ridiculous Bitch / RidiculousB.tchMusic ) is the brainchild
of NYC-based rock n roller production team Jimmie Marlowe and Karen Xerri.
Both international touring veterans, entertainers and classically-trained multiinstrumentalists
share an intense passion for equally groundbreaking and
notoriously controversial acts which have shaped and shifted music history.
Ridiculous Bitch draws on rock, glam, pop-punk and lyrical. The result
culminating in a perfect blend of the familiar and avant-garde; a highly unique
sound accessible to the masses and cerebral enough to appeal to the rest of us
while never (EVER) taking themselves too seriously.
Ridiculous Bitch’s uniquely eclectic style has been infused by the idiosyncratic
duo’s strongest inuences including Foxy Shazam, Biy Clyro, Patti Smith,
Bowie, Devo, PJ Harvey, Van Morrison, Peaches, Nick Cave, Portishead, and
Lightnin’ Hopkins. The result is music that’s both easily accessible and
groundbreaking. Music that creates tension and inspires thought.
Xerri’s background in pop-rock (Gloria Blue), blues, electronic (Elliott Sharp) and
l i l f t t i t t M l ’ t i l k
classical oers a perfect counterpoint to Marlowe’s roots in glam rock
(#wildstreet), melodic pop rock (Goodbar, bambi) and hard rock.
And, while spreading oneself too stylistically thin in this new world of instant,
personally-curated-playlists might open up a highly versatile group like
Ridiculous Bitch up to a pitfall of musical obscurity, the duo’s music manages to
avoid it brilliantly. The music is uniquely their own. And it is unforgettable.
