Legendary DJ and music taste-maker
Rodney Bingemheimer on Josie Cotton’s Invasion Of The B-Girls :


I initially got a copy of Josie’s latest album in a gift bag at a Jared Gold fashion party at Club Social. I’ve been playing it regularly every week on my show. I was really super impressed by her doing those songs from overlooked B- Movies. The phone lines at my KROQ-FM shift have been ringing. Every response from ‘Is that Josie Cotton’ from the eighties to ‘Who is this singing?’ Great production. I’ve been spinning ‘Girl In Gold boots’ and ‘Maneaters’ a lot.
Josie found some great songs we’ve forgotten about. It’s a ‘Girl Group’ sound at times on some tracks where she sounds like Lesley Gore, The Shangra-Las, Debbie Harry, and then many other songs where you know it’s Josie. But the sound of the album is totally modern. Very now. Cool production. The songs are from movies you hardly ever see let alone hear that have these songs tucked inside these films. I dig her voice and she rocks.
