on Junkie Cousin
Newport Beach, CA.
By AJ Marx
a WeHo native, but for a good cause even I will cross
over the rigid Orange County border line. Which is what
happened last week for the Fundraiser at Hamburger Mary's
supporting the California Quake Professional Women's
Tackle Football League put on by Venus Envy.
so a little more than charity was on my mind when I
drove over the LA border and ventured into OC land in
search of sexy babes with footballs but I was rewarded
with a treasure in the form of a new band with an tremendous
sound called Junkie Cousin (junkiecousin.com).
lead singer Danielle Egnew was introduced onto the stage
as a music award winner and the star of an upcoming
film. No surprise. She's hot. She did a few numbers
with her guitar before she was joined by the band for
a great set.
looks like a naughty cheerleader with hip boots to here
and a sexy body that supports a Band-Aid size half football
jersey with the number "69" stitched across
her ample chest and really tight shorts that would surely
get her arrested in the conservative OC. The outfit,
daring as it may be, and the woman wearing it certainly
sizzles - but then Egnew steps up to the mic and opens
that gorgeous mouth to reveal a luminous voice with
a range that made the crowd go wild.
Egnew would be enough to capture anyone's interest for
some time, the band just jells as a whole unit.
Paul Houston rocked the house with a solo in their next
to last song and though I was pretty sure he was invoking
the spirit of Jimi Hendrix, he really left me wanting
more. Bassist Rich Vaccaro and drummer Ed Gray round
out Junkie Cousin's hard edgy sound.
Cousin gave out free CD's to the crowd which was a nice
touch. The CD is a staple in my truck, since that's
where I spend most of my time commuting. Though the
song I've been humming, which is not on the CD is Dana
Scully Is A Lesbian, and easily could be their comedic
anthem. It will have you rolling with laughter while
you jam out as it did with the audience at Hamburger
group is around to stay and I for one am hooked on Junkie
