Get ur ass up and purchase the debut album from CHRISTEENE : WASTE UP, KNEEZ DOWN
“The first full album from drag terrorist CHRISTEENE—WASTE UP, KNEEZ DOWN—is a stomach-turning, butt-thumping dance manifesto. This self-produced, 13-track chronicle of a vile and shameless life includes new and previously released singles that delve deep into the back rooms, busted dreams, and burnt offerings of this talented and visionary nightmare.”
CHRISTEENE is a human pissoir of raw unabashed sexuality; a gender-blending, booty-pounding, perversion of punk fully equipped with an arsenal of ferocious music intertwined with raw moments of strained intimacy and fiery stank.
Reports from live shows describe CHRISTEENE appearing alongside two sexually distinct ‘Backup Boyz’, macabre scenes involving butt plugs tied to bouquets of balloons being released from the singer’s arse, intimate and bizarre confessionals, wardrobes styled from the forgotten scraps of society, and heated communication on the state of the world as we know it.
CHRISTEENE has toured extensively both nationally and internationally for the past several years as well as supporting Faith No More and Peaches on both their world tours in 2015.
CHRISTEENE is also accompanied by a highly stylized collection of music videos released through the performer’s longtime collaborative efforts with award winning filmmaker and cinematographer, PJ Raval.
The duo’s music videos have been showcased in the film festivals: South by Southwest, NYC Rooftop Films, Paris Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, CFMDC’s Queer City Cinema’s Tour “Wide Open Wide”, Homo-a-go-go, Prince George Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, Regina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the International Short Film Festival/ Detmold, and the Denver Film Festival…to name a few.
It should be noted that CHRISTEENE’s music, media and live shows have cast an unprecedented net over a demographic including married men, dykes, queers, single women, bears, faeries, academics, motor hogs, pastors, and people of the medical profession; clearly signifying a rapidly growing pandemic on popular culture as we know it.
