Junkyard Lipstick fills the great gap that is currently in the South African Alternative scene, that of a hardcore, fun all-female band who does not really give a crap about what people think of their in-your-face attitude.
Country: South Africa
History: 2011 – Present
Style: Hard Rock/Thrash/Punk
Junkyard Lipstick is a 4 piece all female band based in Cape Town which started in early 2011 and plays hard rock with a thrash/punk edge.
They released 2 demo tracks “Hollywood Hustler” and “Manic Moronic” in July 2011 on Facebook and started playing the club circuit in September 2011. Festivals played include the Main Stage at Rock the River 2011/2012 NYE festival, and the Main Stage at Splashy Fen 2012 over Easter weekend.
After a member line-up change in 2012, Junkyard Lipstick has finally settled into their own unique style and has changed focus to writing material more in line with their own musical tastes, and concentrating on diverse content ranging from politics, social issues and gore. They also were part of Rolling Stone South Africa’s first ever “Rolling Stone Weekend” event which features 10 young and upcoming voices in the South African local music scene.
Junkyard Lipstick has released a demo track called “Autopsy Time” in July 2012, released a few singles during their journey and in March 2013 released their debut album “Hellbent”.
