Junkyard Lipstick was born in Cape Town early 2011 inspired by watching The Runnaways and ‘Why the Hell Not’ attitude. They have been playing the local club circuit ever since.
Persisting through line up changes in early 2012, they finally found their own unique style and changed their focus to writing heavier and faster material, concentrating on topics such as politics, social issues and gore delivered with a feminine touch. Their sound includes various subgenres of the alternative music spectrum but mostly in the thrash/power metal arena.

Hard copies available at Ramfest
Official EP launch on 29 March 2014 at ROAR, Lower Main Road, Observatory, Cape Town.
I’ve seen this band grow from strength to strength and progressing in their music style opting for a more metal sound. The produciton on the EP is reminicent of something from an 80s metal collection which is not a bad thing, only means shit will progress and become more brutal.
This EP has a nice all round feel of gore hitting you like a freight train heading straight to hell. On a technical aspect, these ladies have set out to entertain you with some cool licks and loooooots of double bass, and plenty of guteral vocals.
There are very few all female bands that take this genre of music by the balls and make it their own. Junkyard Lipstick have played many gigs and have made their mark and proven that they too can kick ass.
I look forward to seeing what comes next and how they will progress.
