Rockwired Radio Profiles #539 - Scarlet and the Harlots

The darling of college kids, classic and alt rock fans and excitable drag queens alike, the high energy, horn fired progressive blues rockers SCARLET AND THE HARLOTS carry on and blaze a path beyond the sacred rock and roll traditions of their home region of Northeast Ohio. Hailing from the Akron and Cleveland areas which gave us everyone from DEVO and CHRISSIE HYNDE to NINE INCH NAILS and THE BLACK KEYS, the eight piece powerhouse - led by the edgy, searing vocals of SCARLET, which have been compared to those of JANIS JOPLIN - harkens back to an amazing era in rock history (characterized by events like Woodstock and legends like JIM MORRISON) where artists were brash, no holds were barred, everyone was fun loving and the music made people feel alive. In an age where rock n roll is supposed to be dead as a door nail SCARLET AND THE HARLOTS prove that it is very much alive, kicking and (more often than not) screaming for mercy on the group's explosive new six track EP whose title echoes what their fans are feeling: WE CAN'T SEEM TO GET ENOUGH.
