When i 1st started TURBOVULVA i decided that it was finally time for me to do my own thing. I at that point had had it with the band experience....didn't want to practice....didn't want to schedule anything around anyone else. I just wanted to work on music all day every day.
I went looking for a studio to work at & ran across an ad for STUDIO 11 in the Illinois Entertainer. Called. Talked to Dan. Went to meet Dan. Later met Alex who I would go on to form STRAP-ON SWEETIE with in 2005. Alex would go on to record FANCI PANTIE PARLOR as well as almost every other TURBOVULVA track for the next few years
FANCI PANTIE PARLOR (i believe) was the 1st release to come out of the new STUDIO 11 now located on Lake Street in Chicago.
One day in late 2000 i/we went to Studio 11 & recorded Fester With Vulvas & Mink Mold (which was not on this disc it ended up on the Spank EP). Most of the other tracks were a puzzle built around that.......(except)
The Anti-Drug Record/Hellevator Game Bot Play Dots/ Hellevator outro sequence was the 1st thing recorded for this disc at the old Studio 11 located at 11 E. Superior (thus the name) in Chicago.
At the time if you remember we were inundated with the Creeds & the Limp Bisquicks of the world & i wanted to get as far away from that trogolodyte fodder as i could possibly muster. Even though i had always existed in "real" rock bands i wanted to put together an opus that would span the 9 tracks it ended up being.....
break all my self-imposed rules....
& do something in a completely different mindset.
FANCI PANTIE PARLOR was the end result
the 1st "official" TURBOVULVA release........there were at least another 10-15 tracks recorded before this starting sometime in 1998.
Just to clarify a few questions that have come up about the title over the past few years.............
a FANCI PANTIE PARLOR is a social chastity belt
FANCI was spelled that way because that's the way a cunt named Brandi would have (mis)spelled her name in your high-school yearbook. PANTIE spelled that way came from an old Vogue ad i had purchased years before. PARLOR is a doctrine NOT a parlour.
ALSO: the entire disc is one long sequence with only one break towards the end of Fester With Vulvas which is why the tracks begin & end the way they do when you purchase them as seperate tracks at iTunes or any of the other digital distributors. it was ALWAYS intended to be one long song from start to finish & that's the way it should be listened to...for instance if you listen to the end of I'm Not Really A Waitress that's the beginning of Anti-Drug Record which leads to Hellevator Game Bot Play Dots & so on.
Put them in iTunes & they will play without breaks between songs as was originally intended.
