VANCOUVER, BC – April 30, 2017 – An alcoholic stripper turns musician when she decides to get sober and write a concept album about her experiences in the exotic entertainment industry.
“Sex, Drugs & Shiny Brass Poles” is the debut album of Borg Queen an electro goth rock project from Vancouver, BC. The full length concept album was released January 29th, 2017 and is being very well received.
“From the second “This is Real” kicks off the album, you realize it doesn’t even matter if you’re not into industrial, alternative or electronic music because “Sex, Drugs & Shiny Brass Poles” really can’t be classified or labeled, in such a limiting way. It’s just amazingly composed, brooding, haunting music which takes you into another level of consciousness.”
The liner notes precisely describe the album theme as:
“A dark yet enlightening journey in to the deepest recesses of the human psyche through the eyes of a stripper.”
The first 5 songs are written from the perspective of an addict trapped in a pit of despair and resentment. The second half of the album is written in a sober voice reflecting a more enlightened point of view.
Originally, the project began as a series of surrealistic paintings that were a form of art therapy aiding Jenny’s recovery process, but has now evolved into a full blown multidisciplinary art project.
Vancouver DJ Jeremy Baker of CFOX 99.3FM describes Jenny as,
“a one woman content producing machine! ‘She plays and records all the instruments and does the engineering and production. Each song has a corresponding painting done in large format acrylic on canvas. Borg Queen has evolved into an assimilation of all the different artistic mediums Jenny has trained and worked with professionally including, painting, animation, acting, set design, dance, musical theatre, production design and of course music.’ ”
