Ruby Throat is a duo comprising KatieJane Garside of Daisy Chainsaw and Queenadreena infamy and Chris Whittingham. They formed in 2006 when Katie found Chris busking on the London Underground. The first song they wrote and immediately posted on a quickly erected MySpace page was called “House Of Thieves” that unveiled the sort of country-tinged folk music that comprises the Ruby Throat ouevre. Ruby Throat sounds like nothing created by KatieJane before, drawing from English folk, dark Americana and country music. Their second album is called out of a black cloud came a bird and is being released on the Sleep Like Wolves label.
Some words found in KatieJane Garside''s journal might suggest the place this record came from: "a long summer of serrated, grinding seconds moving over my body, tectonic plates, a slow painful being erased, a breakdown recorded, a devastation of spirit, a desperately ''taped on'' resolution, who and what survives? the pale art of the salesman 2009, my body a carcrash canvas, your name scratched into it, the blunt needle point of a compass slowing the traffic, who is the ''i'' that erases ''you''?, this is a long and arduous recording, a B movie with resentfully gorgeous camera angles, the fallendown house of ruby throat."
KatieJane has been keeping extremely busy in the time between the last release from Queenadreena -- the immediate successor to Daisy Chainsaw -- and Ruby Throat. One off projects undertaken include Corps Electriques or "Electric Bodies," a collaboration between the late French composer Hector Zazou, Bill Rieflin (Ministry, REM, Swans), Lone Kent and Nils Petter Molvaer. The ensemble has performed live only once at the 2007 Presences Electronique festival in France on the 15th of March and released one self-titled album. Lesions In The Brain is a comic short written by Garside and written/illustrated by Dan Schaffer: “[It''s about] Psychological distress, self-mutilation, sex, defiance… the usual.” The comic was named after a track from KatieJane’s Lullabies In A Glass Wilderness CD of hushed yet disturbing songs, released under the name “Lalleshwari.”
Garside first penetrated the public’s awareness with the band Daisy Chainsaw. Chainsaw pushed the envelope with their wild style, frantic sound and hypnotic force. KatieJane swung the pendulum in vocal performance from sweet innocence to rabid dog. The band''s performances were symphonies of collective energy, waving you through their maze of emotions, both darkness and light. The band clobbered the UK indie singles chart with back-to-back number one hits, "Love Your Money" and "Pink Flower." The band''s live performance earned them outstanding approval around the globe. Daisy Chainsaw created a circus-like atmosphere as the stage for their music.
After Katie Jane Garside had recovered from the breakdown that Daisy Chainsaw caused, and moved back to Belsize Park, north-west London, she unexpectedly bumped into old DC band mate Crispin Gray. A spark was rekindled and the pair soon got together and wrote about 30-40 new songs. Before recruiting band members to take the new project on the road, the pair went into the recording studio and released three singles prior to launching the debut. All three received general praise all around, Kerrang! magazine exclaiming, “like Kate Bush fronting Nine Inch Nails.” This was followed by the debut album Taxidermy which boasted a much darker sound than DC’s with ever-changing tempos and stark styles. Their second full length release was entitled Drink Me and was even more raw, harsh, and violent than ANY previous material released by the band. The Butcher And The Butterfly was their third album and found KatieJane’s sister Melanie joining the band on bass for its recording. 2008’s Djin is their most recent release.
