Speak & Destroy
So, after the "totally acrimonious" split from her last band, self-styled one-woman tattoo-and-mascara-tornado [B]Tairrie B[/B] returns with [a]My Ruin[/a], her first solo project....
crop up. It's certain that none of this would have happened with Tura Satana.
Sure, sometimes the cringe factor shoots through the roof - when Tairrie roars, "Today is an oatmeal day/I feel like a monster babe" on 'Monster', or "I'm your scary teddy bear" on 'Bright Red Scream' - but overall, 'Speak & Destroy' is the most complete thing she's ever done. Don't be afraid.
