Nine Lives And Forty Fives (Limited Colored Vinyl)
Released on May 15, 2020
Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley on a steady diet of punk and glitter rock, Prima Donna are infamous on the L.A. scene. Unlike many of their contemporaries, however, this foursome not only taps into early British Invasion rock-n-roll as translated by sax infused bands such as the Dave Clark Five, early Stooges and The Sonics, but they also put their own snarling, full throttle spin on it, leaving just enough L.A. sleaze in the mix to make it their own.
Their curriculum includes musical road trips with Eddie and the Hot Rods, Adam Ant, D-Generation and even Green Day, who they supported on two arena tours on two continents. Frontman Kevin Preston has also continued participation in Green Day side-project Foxboro Hot Tubs.
Nine Lives and Forty-Fives features eight original songs, and three covers: “I’m On Fire” (Dwight Twilley), “Rock and Roll is Dead” (The Rubinoos) and “Rip Her To Shreds” (Blondie).
