1 - COTTON, JOSIE - CONVERTIBLE MUSIC - (CD) 
KITTEN ROBOT


Originally released in 1982, Convertible Music kicked of a storied and perennial career of one of New Wave's most iconic voices. Famously featured in the seminal 1983 film CD Valley Girl, Josie Cotton performed in the film's prom scene both of her breakthrough singles, "He Could Be the One" and the controversial (still) "Johnny, Are You Queer?" This reissue represents the album's first appearance on Compact Disc with the LP's original artwork, plus the addition of bonus track "(Let's Do) The Blackout," which was the B-side of the single when it first appeared via Bomp Records. Lauded upon release, Convertible made a huge mark on the New Wave scene. AllMusicGuide called it "a classic of the whole California girly pop scene of the early '80s, on a level with the Go Go's (first and the debut) Bangles EP," adding "the songs, mostly written by Cotton herself or her producers, Bobby and Laron Paine, are neat '60s pastiches with elements of surf (the glorious opener, 'He Could Be the One'), Shangri-Las-style melodrama (the sultry 'I Need the Night Tonight'), and the Farfisa-driven swoony pop bliss ('Rockin' Love,' 'So Close')."

4 - COTTON, JOSIE - INVASION OF THE B-GIRLS - (LP) 
DIONYSUS


A collection of theme songs and featured tunes from a variety of exploitation films from the 60s and 70s, JOSIE COTTONS Invasion of the B-Girls is a one-of-a-kind album. The LP boasts liner notes from director John Waters, who knows more about this film genre than anyone. His own song, "Female Trouble," (from the film of the same name) is prominently featured, and will also be the advance digital single to the vinyl LP, helping to raise awareness about the album. The track features the TOWER OF POWER horns; other featured musicians throughout include David Kendrick (DEVO, SPARKS), Paul Roessler (SCREAMERS, TWISTED ROOTS), Geza X, Kenny Lyon and many others. While the movies that are highlighted are often considered low-budget affairs, the production value of these versions take many of these numbers to a new level. Among the songs on the LP are "Maneaters (Get off the Road)" from Herschell Gordon Lewis female biker flick She Devils on Wheels, "Run Pussy Cat" from Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," both Russ Meyer exploitation classics. The theme songs from The Girl in Gold Boots, Green Slime and Black Klansman (the Ted V. Mikels film, not Spike Lees) are all on board and delivered with expected Josie panache. Two songs from the giant Japanese monster genre, "Goodbye Godzilla" and "Shiawaseo Yobou" are also lovingly rendered.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Get Off The Road 02. Girl In Gold Boots 03. Who Killed Teddy Bear 04. Green Slime 05. Black Klansman 06. Female Trouble 07. Faster Pussycat 08. Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls 09. Shiawaseo Yobo 10. Goodbye Godzilla

5 - COTTON, JOSIE - UKRANIAN COWBOY/COLD WAR SPY - (7") 
SYMPATHY FOR TH


JOSIE COTTON is an American singer and songwriter, best known for international hit, "Johnny Are You Queer?" and "He Could Be the One" from 1982. "Johnny Are You Queer?" was used on the soundtracks to Jackass Number Two and Valley Girl. "He Could Be the One" was used in Valley Girl.Says JOSIE, "You could say this is an unintentional Communist concept-record. I didnt plan it that way... If you can ever plan being unintentional. Ive just always been fascinated with human behavior and the tyranny of ideas. I also find them absurdly funny like an insane puppet show. Were living in strange times. Im just rearranging the puppets in a musical with a warning label. And I get to say the purge of Stalin in a pop song... how rich is that?"The tracks:Ukrainian CowboyCowgirl meets Bolshevik falls for Bolshevik dumps Bolshevik by horseback.Cold War SpyMod double-agent boyfriend infiltrates Stasi in East Germanyand has his soul removed."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ukranian Cowboy 02. Cold War Spy
