The show will feature an eclectic range of music that will be sure to test your musical knowledge and to keep you entertained for the entire two hours. If you caught the Girl Bros Radio show last month with Lisa and Renata, then you will have an idea of what to expect with SpinOff.

Of course, in addition to the great music is the always interesting Luxuria chat! Last week, during the chat, topics ranged from scary movies, to cancer, to religion. There is no telling what will be discussed on the chat, BUT it is always interesting!

Wendy & Lisa Deserve Additional Score Release!

As some of you may know, Wendy & Lisa are currently the score composers for 3 shows: Heroes, Nurse Jackie, and Mercy. Although the dynamic duo has released a score for Heroes (which can be purchased here: La La Land Records or Amazon Heroes Score), they have created additional wonderful score which has not been released and is not available to us fans.

To remedy this travesty, I am asking fans to help campaign to have more score released by Wendy & Lisa! Basically, if you have a little time and an internet connection, I am asking that you send Showtime and La-La Land Records (who released The Heroes Score) a polite e-mail explaining how much you love the Nurse Jackie and Heroes scores (respectively) and how nice it would be to have the score music released (additional score in the case of Heroes).

  • La-La Land Records has a contact e-mail address where you can request that additional Heroes score be released:
Please note that neither Wendy nor Lisa have anything to do with this request. This is solely a grass-roots effort by the fans to get more of their score released! I have already sent in my request e-mails, will you?

If you would like to have more information on Wendy & Lisa as score composers as well as wonderful samples of their score, please go to the pages on their Official Website, here: Wendy & Lisa Composers  and here: Wendy & Lisa Score Samples

If you would like even more samples of score from shows past and present, please visit the ‘Our Scores, Themes, Cues’ playlist here: Wendy & Lisa’s You Tube Channel.

If you do decide to campaign for more Wendy & Lisa score, I THANK YOU very much in advance!!!

MusicRX Finds a Wendy & Lisa ‘Hidden Treasure’!

After he ‘totally missed it’ for 10 years, Mog blogger, MusicRX describes how he found the Girl Bros album. In addition, MusicRX also gives a very good brief review of the album. It is wonderful to hear that, even after 10 years, this beautiful album is still finding new fans! YAY!!!

A Hidden Treasure

I know... you're saying, "is he nuts?" Well, I would have said that too.

Before this week, I only knew of these gals as former Prince prodigies and cast offs, who do Prince like dance pop. Well I was wrong. They released this album about 10 years ago and I totally missed it.

But, it's a wonderful rock album. At times, it is Heart/Bangles like, others times it's more Joni Mitchell and Steven Still like. The vocals are not pretentious and oft times haunting. It also gets a bit psychedelic too. I really like what they do on this album and wanted you to hear this unexpected treasure.

Fans (and King Britt) React to Wendy & Lisa’s Sweet Suite Remix!

In the week following the release of King Britt’s ‘Sweet Suite Remix’, fans have posted the track on their blogs and have given the remix good reviews! Below are several great comments from King Britt himself, the ‘Tress for Breakfast’ blog, and the ‘Time To Play B-Sides’ blog.

On his blog, King Britt wrote: “I cant believe it myself. I have worked with Wendy and Lisa. Whoa!.... Enjoy kids!” 

Trees for Breakfast writes,
“Are you ready for 10 minutes of pure, cosmic dopeness? This was a treat to behold earlier today and I couldn’t let the day pass before sharing it. First off, if you don’t know who Wendy & Lisa are, please do your research immediately. They have just blessed the blogosphere and the Internet as a whole with a remix project they are working on. One of their first collabs comes via Philly’s own King Britt. I can’t describe it any better than they did: “a slippery, dark, under-the-covers remix.” I’m gonna need to lay down and close my eyes to this one. Incredible.”

Time To Play B-Sides writes,
“The fine folks in the Wendy & Lisa camp are giving away a remix of my favorite track on the new White Flags of Winter Chimneys album “Sweet Suite.” Done by the Philly DJ/Producer King Britt.
The 9:57 track reimagines the stripped-down, dreamy, slightly melancholy track that I think could have sat alongside tracks on Parade into a downtempo electro number. On the album, “Sweet Suite” has a bit of a reprise of “Balloon” as a way to tie off the album tidily. This remix spends no time in the reprise, but breaks down the main theme in a very different light.
The track was debuted on the 9/4 episode of Girl Bros. Radio at Luxuria Music at which point I found out that the track would be made available, and here it is! According to the e-mail that was sent out today this is part of a White Flags of Winter Chimneys Remix Album they are working on! Very, very cool! (vinyl, please!).”
