Sparklepussy Barbie, Red Moscow, RTB2, the Red Herrings
It's a damn good thing the Deathray Davies rock the way they do; otherwise, they would be eclipsed by their own side project, and we'd have to say the phrase "Sparklepussy Barbie" all the time. As in, "Hey, didja see Sparklepussy Barbie last night?" and, "Bye, Mom! I'm off to see Sparklepussy Barbie!"
Not that that would really be a bad thing—after all, SP (which really only has about half of Deathray as members) rip the Bauhaus synth and skuzzy, distorted New Wave vocals better than anyone, with tongue planted in '80s cheek, while simultaneously sounding out the melodies of '80s chic.
