Your name:  
Scary Cherry.

Where are you from?  
We are from Dallas, Texas.

Name of band: 
Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs.

Who is in your band? 
Scary Cherry, Minx the Jinx, NovaCraig, Robadala and Alan Mallets.

How would you describe yourselves?  
Glitter punk.

Who are your main influences musically?  
It comes from all over...from Iggy Pop to Queen, Lou Reed, Trent Reznor, Muse, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, Sweet, Johnny Cash, Cheap Trick.

What do you hope to achieve in music?  
Just to be able to keep creating music that we like. Would really love to play in Europe!

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?  
With the Bang Bangs we have had several milestones...from winning the OurStage/MTV grand prize, opening up for Slash and MegaDeath, Lords of Acid, Misfits. The Independent Music Awards nominating our debut album GIRL for Best Rock Album and Don't Wanna for Best Rock Single 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?  
When I had to perform with food poisoning. It went off well, but man, it was friggin tough!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That's a tough one. Crazy Jane because it's soft, hard and a bit fucked up...same with Tracked Down and Don't Wanna is just Balls (or ovaries) to the wall...it's just a hard call for me...all I can say is JAM OUT WITH YOUR GLAM OUT!!!

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?  
The band was born out of all female flat track roller derby here in Dallas. I (Scary Cherry) played for five years. I was a captain, a coach and on the travel team. Our music is a lot like derby...hard hitting, full of sexy violence and fun!  xoxox
