Daisy Chainsaw were an English alternative rock band, active between 1989 and 1994. They featured KatieJane Garside as lead vocalist and lyricist on the band's early EPs and debut album, Eleventeen. After her departure in 1993, Belinda Leith joined as lead vocalist for the final album released in 1994; the band's live performances were noted for their wild histrionics. The band formed in 1989 after KatieJane Garside answered an advertisement placed by guitarist Crispin Gray in the music press, their gigs included grapevines and rag dolls strewn across the stage, Garside thrashing around in soiled gowns drinking juice from a baby bottle. The band were successful with their Love Sick Pleasure EP which included the hit single, Love Your Money - due to prime time appearances on ITV's The Chart Show and Channel 4's The Word. However, they had to decline appearing on BBC TV's Top of the Pops because Garside had a throat infection. Love Your Money reached number 26 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1992.
Turning down an offer to be signed to Madonna's Maverick record label, they signed to the indie label, One Little Indian. The follow-up singles Pink Flower and Hope Your Dreams Come True were only moderately successful, as was their debut album Eleventeen, peaking on the UK Albums Chart at number 62. In support of Eleventeen, the band toured extensively in the United Kingdom with grunge band Mudhoney, who were supporting their new release, Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, alternative rock band Hole, who were supporting their debut, Pretty on the Inside. Hole frontwoman Courtney Love cited KatieJane Garside as one of the "first true riot grrls" alongside herself and Kat Bjelland of Babes in Toyland, although none of these bands were directly associated with the riot grrl movement. In 1993, Garside disappeared from the music scene and from the public eye. Due to her manic onstage histrionics and bizarre behaviour in interviews, rumours circulated that Garside had fallen into mental illness. Garside moved to a house in the Lake District and was unheard of until 1999 when she formed Queenadreena.
Belinda Leith now joined as Daisy Chainsaw's lead vocalist, signing to One Little Indian and recording the final Daisy Chainsaw album For They Know Not What They Do. After touring England to promote the album in 1993 the album was released in 1994. Belinda left before the albums release to collaborate on other projects and sing on Terry Hall's album Home, released in 1994, she is featured in the video and front cover for the single Forever J. The three remaining members renamed themselves Dizzy Q Viper and released an EP with Crispin Gray on vocals, before splitting up. Dizzy Q Viper was made up of previous Daisy Chainsaw members, Gray and Johnson. After Dizzy Q Viper, Vapid Dolly was created, this band was made up of Dizzy Q Viper members with the addition of Hanayo as lead vocals; the new millennium saw Gray musically reuniting to form Queenadreena. An episode of Roseanne mentioned the band as one of Darlene Conner's favorites and revolved around the character attending one of their concerts.
In subsequent episodes, a poster displaying the cover art of their debut album "Eleventeen" was shown hanging on the inside of her bedroom door. The Official Daisy Chainsaw Website
Lullabies in a Glass Wilderness
Lullabies in a Glass Wilderness is an experimental self-released album by English artist KatieJane Garside, using the stage name Lalleshwari. She is the frontwoman of Ruby Throat, of Queenadreena and Daisy Chainsaw; the name "Lalleshwari" is derived from an ancient Hindu poet. According to Garside's official website, the songs featured on Lullabies in a Glass Wilderness were recorded intermittently over a period of six years in 4-track format. In addition to digital download, Lalleshwari/Lullabies in a Glasswilderness was released in a Digipak CD format, as well as a limited edition CD + DVD set of which only 300 copies were published; this included different artwork and packaging, a bonus DVD disc featuring short films, an additional track titled "Play for Us". The first hundred copies featured Garside's handprint in purple paint, as well as her signature and the number out of 100. However, the tracks "Marybell" and "In the Birdcage, Part 1" were only included in the regular edition. The'Lalleshwari' package offers unique artwork and lyrics presented in the form of a sketchbook.
There are pictures of Garside exclusive to the package and appear nowhere on the regular edition of the album, including an uncensored full frontal nude image. The first 100 limited edition versions of'Lalleshwari' sold out within 24 hours, costing the buyer £35. There are four films on the DVD itself: 1. In The Hallway 2. In The Bedroom 3. At The Window 4. In The Kitchen'In the Hallway' features KatieJane at one end of a hallway as she proceeds to crawl on her hands and knees; the film is played back and forth rhythmically over and over again to give the feeling of perpetual movement without getting anywhere. The film is the longest and lasts 17 minutes and 13 seconds.'In the Bedroom' is played in slow motion and has KatieJane dancing in the darkness of her room while holding a string of fairy lights that illuminate her body. The slow movement and eerie, droning background music make her seem ethereal. KatieJane is naked in this video except for her knickers and shoes - but there is no provocative body language and the soft movement of the lights along with her body make her seem like a goddess.
KatieJane has commented. The length of this film is 8 minutes and 33 seconds.'At the Window' is white noise while Katiejane's voice sings over it. As within all the films so far, KatieJane is at the centre of the screen and little else around her is seen. There is only a single window surrounded by darkness in the video that gets bigger; this episode is played in fast motion and KatieJane appears to be putting on a private show. This film again has a shorter length than the previous one, ending at 18 seconds. KatieJane is filmed through a window for'In the Kitchen', she appears to be at a sink that we never see. Following the pattern, this last film is the shortest - lasting only 1 minute, 16 seconds. There is no music on this film, just a monologue from KatieJane echoing sentences such as "I thought maybe I should have done it/ I could have gone anywhere/ I could step sideways right now/ Shall I do that right now?/ What do you think?/ God will show me a sign/ I'll wait'til I see a sign". Here KatieJane questions herself elaborately, it seems as though she is talking about herself in that moment because she has her back to the camera.
KatieJane doesn't move from her position throughout the video, a clear contrast between the previous three episodes where she moves and dances, exposed to the camera. Each video is filmed in black & white and offers no interaction with other people, so the feeling of isolation is quite potent; the regular edition of the'Lullabies in a Glass Wilderness' album is only available online, through KatieJane's website and MySpace. Jen Dan of the independent music website Delusions of Adequacy wrote: "This album is neither sweepingly angelic or devilishly tormented–it’s more of a creep through the wild weeds, but it’s worth it for fans of KatieJane Garside’s work."

Katrina Jane "KatieJane" Garside is an English singer, visual artist, poet. She rose to prominence as the lead vocalist of the indie noise rock band Daisy Chainsaw, which she formed in 1989 in London with guitarist Crispin Gray. After quitting Daisy Chainsaw in 1993, Garside went into seclusion for several years before reuniting with Gray in 1999 to form Queenadreena, with whom she released four studio albums between 2000 and 2008. In both Daisy Chainsaw and Queenadreena, Garside received critical attention for her alternately harsh and childlike vocals, manic onstage behaviour, raucous live concerts. Beginning in 2007, she began writing and releasing material with her project Ruby Throat, an acoustic collaboration with guitarist Chris Whittingham. In 2007, Ruby Throat released their debut album, The Ventriloquist, followed by the self-released albums Out of a Black Cloud Came a Bird and O' Doubt O' Stars, released in 2009 and 2012, respectively. Ruby Throat released their fourth album, Baby Darling Taporo, in 2017.
Garside self-released a solo album, Lullabies in a Glass Wilderness, in 2007, has worked in performance art and photography. In late 2007, her exhibition Darling, they've found the body was shown at Woom gallery in Birmingham, United Kingdom, she has exhibited, in 2005, at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. Garside was born on 8 July 1968 in East Riding of Yorkshire, England, she has Melanie. Garside spent her early years in Wiltshire, her father was in the British Army and had a musical background, having played in local bands in London. When Katrina was age twelve, her father took the family to live aboard a yacht, they sailed the world for four years. Garside has said that spending her formative years living on the sea gave her a "different perspective on things." "You have no reference points, so everything you know ceases, including time on the long passages. It’s the same thing every day, relentlessly. There’s nothing to see, there’s no one to talk to. Which is... terrifying. You’ve got nowhere to hide, you’re so exposed.
But it’s very beautiful because all distraction falls away." At age seventeen, she returned to England. Garside formed Daisy Chainsaw in 1989 after responding to an advert in a newspaper by guitarist Crispin Gray. Bassist Richard Adams joined the band, along with Canadian drummer Vince Johnson; the group became well known for their wild live performances, featuring Garside drilling doll heads onstage and drinking juice out of baby bottles. The band's raucous concerts would sometimes result in Garside performing self-mutilation onstage. Russell Senior, guitarist of Pulp, recalled that at one 1989 concert in London, Garside wrapped the microphone cord so around her neck onstage that she lost consciousness, the show had to be ended early. Garside's look was described as a "Gothic street urchin image, complete with dead flowers meshed into her dreadlocked hair". In a review of one of the band's concert's in 1991, an unnamed journalist for Bust magazine wrote: "KatieJane Garside is either in drastic need of psychiatric help or she deserves an Oscar for best actress."The band toured the United Kingdom with Hole and Mudhoney to promote the album prior to its release, Garside drew comparisons from British press to Hole's frontwoman Courtney Love.
Love cited Garside as one of the "first true riot grrls" in 1991 and admitted to borrowing from Garside's aesthetic. Garside never associated herself with the movement, based in the Pacific Northwest of the United States; the band released Eleventeen in 1992, which would be their only full-length album before Garside left the band in 1993. The album spawned "Love Your Money", the band's most popular single. "Love Your Money" reached number 26 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1992. After Garside left Daisy Chainsaw, she disappeared from the public eye and music scene, going into seclusion, residing in the Lake District. A self-described recluse, Garside commented that "I could be anywhere and it wouldn't make a lot of difference, so I don't know that much about the country that I was born in and that I've lived in." Due to her manic onstage histrionics and bizarre behaviour in interviews, rumours circulated that Garside had succumbed to mental illness. In years, she admitted that she had been suffering a nervous breakdown at the time.
In spite of the rumours of purported seclusion, Garside was given a credit in the liner notes of the 1993 Frostbite album, Second Coming. She collaborated with the industrial band Test Department in 1995 on their album Totality. Garside moved to the Lake District in 1996 after having a nervous breakdown, lived in the historical Rigg Beck, a notorious retreat for artists and bohemians, she had no intentions of returning to music until the late 1990s when former guitarist Crisipin Gray contacted her. Some time between 1999 and 2002, during the early stages of Queenadreena, Garside resided in Wales for a brief period. After recording Live at the ICA, which featured a live 2005 performance at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the band released two more albums, Ride a Cockhorse, which featured unreleased 4-track demos, Djin, their final studio release before disbanding around 2009. In 2007, Garside exhibited a collection of photographs and artwork at the Woom Gallery in Birmingham, titled Darling, they've found the body.
Image Comics is an American comic book publisher. It was founded in 1992 by several high-profile illustrators as a venue for creator-owned properties, in which comics creators could publish material of their own creation without giving up the copyrights to those properties, as is the case in the work for hire-dominated American comics industry, in which the legal author is a publisher, such as Marvel Comics or DC Comics, the creator is an employee of that publisher. Image Comics was successful, remains one of the largest comic book publishers in North America, its output was dominated by superhero and fantasy series from the studios of the founding Image partners, but now includes comics in many genres by numerous independent creators. Its best-known series include The Walking Dead, Savage Dragon, The Darkness, Saga and Bone. In the early 1990s, comics creators Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Jim Valentino had dinner with Malibu Comics editor-in-chief Dave Olbrich. Malibu was a small but established publishing company sympathetic to creator-ownership, Olbrich expressed interest in publishing comics created by them.
These and several other freelance illustrators doing popular work for Marvel Comics were growing frustrated with the company's work for hire policies and practices, which they felt did not sufficiently reward the talent that produced them, as the company merchandised their artwork, compensated them with modest royalties. According to Todd McFarlane, he, Jim Lee and Liefeld met with Marvel president Terry Stewart and editor Tom DeFalco in late December 1991. Larsen and Silvestri, who joined the group the night before, were not present, but the group that met with Stewart indicated that they were representing them as well. Contrary to what has been reported by other sources, McFarlane says that they made no demands of Stewart or Marvel, but informed him that they were leaving, gave their reasons why, cautioned Stewart to heed those reasons, lest the company suffer future exoduses; the creators had the same meeting with DC Comics the next day. After Whilce Portacio returned from his yearly trip to the Philippines, his Homage Studios colleague Lee asked him to join the group.
A group of eight creators announced the founding of Image Comics: illustrators Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino, Whilce Portacio. This development was nicknamed the "X-odus", because several of the creators involved were famous for their work on the X-Men franchise. Marvel's stock fell $3.25 / share. Image's organizing charter had two key provisions: Image would not own any creator's work. No Image partner would interfere – creatively or financially – with any other partner's work. Image itself would own no intellectual property except the company trademarks: its name and its logo, designed by writer Hank Kanalz; each Image partner founded his own studio, which published under the Image banner but was autonomous from any central editorial control. Claremont was not part of the partnership, Portacio withdrew during the formative stages to deal with his sister's illness, so Image consisted of six studios: Todd McFarlane Productions, owned by Todd McFarlane WildStorm Productions, owned by Jim Lee Highbrow Entertainment, owned by Erik Larsen Shadowline, owned by Jim Valentino Top Cow Productions, owned by Marc Silvestri Extreme Studios, owned by Rob Liefeld Their initial titles were produced under the Image imprint, but published through Malibu Comics, which provided administrative, production and marketing support for the launch of them.
The first Image comic books to arrive in stores were Liefeld's Youngblood, Larsen's The Savage Dragon, McFarlane's Spawn, Lee's WildC. A. T.s. Propelled by the artists' popularity and the eagerness of comic book collectors to get in on the "next big thing", these series sold in numbers that no publisher other than Marvel, DC, or Valiant Comics had achieved in the years since the market's decline in the 1970s. Within a few months, the Image titles' success led to Malibu having 10% of the North American comics market share exceeding that of industry giant DC Comics. By the beginning of 1993, Image's financial situation was secure enough to publish its titles independently, it left Malibu; some of the founders' studios came to resemble separate publishers, each with several ongoing series set in a shared universe. The use of freelancers to write or illustrate series that were owned by the Image partners led to criticism that some of them had reproduced the system they had rebelled against, but with them in charge instead of a corporation.
Image partners such as Larsen and Valentino, who did not take this approach, assumed a neutral position on it, in keeping with the requirement that none of them had any say in how the others' studios were run. Some of the Image partners used their studios to publish new works produced by independent creators, allowing them to retain ownership and editorial control over those series, an arrangement, t
David Keith Lynch is an American filmmaker, musician and photographer. He has been described by The Guardian as "the most important director of this era", while AllMovie called him "the Renaissance man of modern American filmmaking", his films Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive are regarded by critics to be among the greatest films of their respective decades, while the success of his 1990–91 television series Twin Peaks led to him being labeled "the first popular Surrealist" by film critic Pauline Kael. He has received three Academy Award nominations for Best Director, has won France's César Award for Best Foreign Film twice, as well as the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Lion award for lifetime achievement at the Venice Film Festival. In 2016, Mulholland Drive, was named the top film of the 21st century by the BBC following a poll of 177 film critics from 36 countries. Born to a middle-class family in Missoula, Lynch spent his childhood traveling around the United States before he studied painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he first made the transition to producing short films.
He moved to Los Angeles, where he produced his first motion picture, the surrealist horror film Eraserhead. After Eraserhead became a cult classic on the midnight movie circuit, Lynch was employed to direct the biographical film The Elephant Man, from which he gained mainstream success, he was employed by the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group and proceeded to make two films: the science-fiction epic Dune, which proved to be a critical and commercial failure, a neo-noir mystery film Blue Velvet, which stirred controversy over its violence but grew in critical reputation. Next, Lynch created his own television series with Mark Frost, the popular murder mystery Twin Peaks, he created a cinematic prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, a road film Wild at Heart and a family film The Straight Story in the same period. Turning further towards surrealist filmmaking, three of his subsequent films operated on dream logic non-linear narrative structures: Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire.
Meanwhile, Lynch embraced the Internet as a medium, producing several web-based shows, such as the animated DumbLand and the surreal sitcom Rabbits. Lynch and Frost reunited for the Showtime limited series Twin Peaks: The Return, with Lynch co-writing and directing every episode. Lynch's other artistic endeavours include: his work as a musician, encompassing two solo albums—Crazy Clown Time and The Big Dream —as well as music and sound design for a variety of his films. An avid practitioner of Transcendental Meditation, Lynch founded the David Lynch Foundation in 2005, which sought to fund the teaching of TM in schools and has since widened its scope to other at-risk populations, including the homeless and refugees. Lynch was born in Missoula, Montana, on January 20, 1946, his father, Donald Walton Lynch, was a research scientist working for the U. S. Department of Agriculture, his mother, Edwina "Sunny" Lynch, was an English language tutor. Two of Lynch's maternal great-grandparents were Finnish, had immigrated to the United States from Finland in the 19th century.
Lynch was raised a Presbyterian. The Lynch family moved around according to where the USDA assigned Donald, it was because of this that when he was two months old, Lynch moved with his parents to Sandpoint and only two years after that, following the birth of his brother John, the family moved to Spokane, Washington. It was here; the family moved to Durham, North Carolina Boise and Alexandria, Virginia. Lynch found this transitory early life easy to adjust to, noting that he found it easy to meet new friends whenever he started attending a new school. Commenting on much of his early life, Lynch has remarked: I found the world and fantastic as a child. Of course, I had the usual fears, like going to school... For me, back school was a crime against young people, it destroyed the seeds of liberty. The teachers didn't encourage a positive attitude. Alongside his schooling, Lynch joined the Boy Scouts, although he would note that he only "became so I could quit and put it behind me." He rose to the highest rank of Eagle Scout.
As an Eagle Scout, he was present with other Boy Scouts outside the White House at the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy, which took place on Lynch's birthday in 1961. Lynch had been interested in painting and drawing from an early age, became intrigued by the idea of pursuing it as a career path when living in Virginia, where his friend's father was a professional painter. At Francis C. Hammond High School in Alexandria, Lynch did poorly academically, having little interest in school work, but was popular with other students, after leaving decided that he wanted to study painting at college, beginning his studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1964, where he was a roommate of Peter Wolf. Nonetheless, he left the School of the Museum of Fine Arts after only a year, stating that "I was not inspired AT ALL in that place", instead deciding that he wanted to travel around Europe for three years with his friend Jack Fisk, unhappy with his studies at Cooper Union, they had some hopes tha
Drink Me (Queenadreena album)
Drink Me is the second studio album by English alternative rock band Queenadreena, released in 2002. Since the band switched labels from Rough Trade to One Little Indian, the album became out of print and has become somewhat of a collector's item; the original British pressing of the album featured a controversial hidden image in the jewel casing. One Little Indian records have stated. Drowned in Sound awarded the album seven out of ten stars, writing: " break the mould in one sense at least – it’s as much Garside’s star qualities as her not-entirely-unattractive deranged and semi-dressed demeanour that carries the group, but for all her unhinged charisma, there is one major problem with ‘Drink Me’–the rest of the band back Garside with an awful slosh of uninspired turgid sub-metal shite that nearly sank without a trace first time around. And with the exception of the bulldozing "Pretty Like Drugs" underpinning and a few more startling riffs scattered like afterthoughts, that’s a let down." Rock Feed Back magazine awarded the album three out of four stars, adding: "Don't allow the opening torrents of 70s-esque heavy-metal riffage falsely lead you.

Djin is the fourth and final studio album by English alternative rock band Queenadreena. The album was released in Japan in October 2008, where it became the band's most commercially successful album to date, peaking at #120 on the Oricon Albums Chart; the album was released in the UK in September 2009. Alan Severa of AllMusic awarded the album four out of five stars, referring to it as Queenadreena's "masterpiece, balancing all their characteristically mercurial elements on the solid basis of the mastery of an accomplished band, left by the media to grow at its own pace." Sputnikmusic awarded the album a 4.0 "excellent" rating, noting: "Djin is an album, consistent with the band's previous work. It is a catchy "garage/noise rock" album with some great dirty punk riffs and solos complimented with an amazing and unique female voice."The independent music site Delusions of Adequacy wrote: "Djin is full of the balls-out, filth ridden tracks you’d expect from the band... There’s more sophistication on this album and more desire to experiment, with some of the songs being noticeably longer than they have been on previous offerings...
Overall, this is a much more mature offering, whilst not losing any of the energy the band are known for." Queenadreena KatieJane Garside – vocals Crispin Gray – guitar Nomi Leonard – bass Pete Howard – drumsTechnical personnel Teo Miller – production, mixing
