Ep 14 - Song 8: "Calling In Dead" by Lipstick Homicide (at Club Saw for The Ottawa Explosion in Canada)

Thanks to Christopher Cook for the video and audio!

"You may not find any lipstick lesbians at this month’s Ottawa Explosion music festival.

"However, rock fans looking to pucker up for some peppy punk can catch Iowa natives Lipstick Homicide when the band plays its first ever Canadian show June 16 at Club SAW.

"Bassist and vocalist Rachel Feldman, guitarist and vocalist Kate Kane and percussionist Luke Ferguson met while attending high school in the tiny town of Coralville, an Iowa City suburb.

"When Canadians think of Iowa, 'punk' may not be the first word that comes to mind, but Feldman assures there are plenty of hard rockers in the state known as America’s heartland. You just have to look for them...

"Feldman and Kane both identify as gay and say that although their orientation somewhat influences their lyrics, their sexuality has never been a hindrance to their musical careers.

"'We've been lucky enough to have not yet come across any kind of firsthand bigotry or discrimination towards our band that I'm aware of,' Feldman says. 'Definitely not here in Iowa or any of the punk rock scenes or communities we've visited.'

"Lipstick Homicide has yet to visit Canada; in fact, their show at Ottawa Explosion will essentially pop their international cherry. The girls say they are excited to experience this milestone.

"Feldman says she’s already met several courteous Canucks.

"'We have had the opportunity to get to know a few Canadians at shows here and there. Everyone we've met so far has been extremely kind and in an awesome band. A lot of my favourite bands right now are from Canada.'"
