The Bitch Tracks
January 7, 2015
On Saturday we’re hosting The Bitch Tracks, a salon with Darrell Jones that is part conversation, part demonstration. In between segments of performance, Darrell will talk to Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Bebe Miller, and Okwui Okpokwasili about his work.
But, what is a Bitch Track? Darrell sent us this quote from The House of Diabolique:
After Moi Renee’s ‘Miss Honey’ dropped in the early 90s, bitch tracks exploded in NYC. An overabundance of queens yapping about pussies and beating on their boyfriends quickly killed the “movement”, but the influence of the bitch track lives on. Simply put, Peaches, Avenue D and any other electroclash artist who relies on raunch or cunty humor owes a debt of gratitude to the bitch track.
Hearing too many bitch tracks at once can be like overloading on candy, and it can’t be denied that some of the hits from back in the day haven’t aged well. But all of our selections still work the bitch fantastic and exude an undeniable spark and wit.
If that doesn’t explain, let Moi Renee enlighten you.
