Sohodolls

The majesty of rock, the mystery of roll, all underpinned by ferocious beats. Sohodolls are not afraid to bring in various musical styles – glam-rock, punk, hip hop and big band swing - put them through their mincer and put out twisted dark pop songs.

Singer and founder of the band Maya Von Doll, ‘a female Iggy Pop’, started the band a couple of years ago and brought in co-conspirator Toni Sailor who has been described by the NME as ‘a more sinister Jimmy Page’.

The majesty of rock, the mystery of roll, all underpinned by ferocious beats. Sohodolls are not afraid to bring in various musical styles – glam-rock, punk, hip hop and big band swing - put them through their mincer and put out twisted dark pop songs.

Singer and founder of the band Maya Von Doll, ‘a female Iggy Pop’, started the band a couple of years ago and brought in co-conspirator Toni Sailor who has been described by the NME as ‘a more sinister Jimmy Page’. They are a weird and wonderful collection of musical maestros who wouldn’t look out of place in A Clockwork Orange or Bowie’s Labyrinth. Weston Doll commands an eclectic array of synths while the rhythm section concoct rock-solid grooves beneath the anthemic melodies and rock and roll riffs. Matt ‘Fuzzy’ Lord on bass and Paul Stone on drums complete the lineup. Sohodolls is first and foremost a live band that you must subject yourself to at least once in your lifetime.

The band wants global domination - their tentacles are already stretching out beyond the safe outposts of LA and London. The band’s ethos is and always has been ‘putting rock and roll back into music’. This doesn’t mean bad behaviour fit for Channel 4 viewing, although it does rear its ugly head every now and then on the tour bus or backstage, but rather Sohodolls’ ethos is one of bold creativity - riffs, songs, lyrics and intros that bands like The Who and The Stooges would dive head-first into.

Sohodolls do humour, paranoia, rage, horniness and vulnerability in almost equal measure. The Sohodolls debut album, Ribbed Music for a Numb Generation was released on 23 September 2007 through AG records « hide
