Josie Cotton - Episode 756

Steve Cooper talks with singer/songwriter/bandleader Josie Cotton. Josie is best known for her international hit Johnny Are You Queer? which was included on the soundtrack of the seminal film Valley Girl.  She also appeared in the film with her band the Party Crashers as well as Jackass Number Two.  She is known for her quirky stylizations and musical experimentation from pop to rockabilly, electronica, swamp, lounge, Western, garage rock and beyond.  She has to date recorded seven albums including Invasion of the B-Girls, a collection of B-movie theme songs (great songs from bad movies) from the 1960s and ‘70s. She also is a record company mogul with the formation of Kitten Robot Records. The first release is a single of two brand new songs with a Russian theme: Ukrainian Cowboy and Cold War Spy which was followed by Everything is Oh Yeah which was to be her third record for Elektra back in the ‘80s.  It has been re-mixed and mastered and was released in partnership with Cleopatra Records.
