Katya
Katya
by Karla Ash

Katya seems to have a single goal: To rattle your speakers until they tumble to the rug, leaving fire stains in its path. There aren’t enough female rockers these days, and I’m not including the punk wanna-be’s in that category. Katya is no punk. Although her music is fairly aggressive, and “Bitch & Moan” has enough Fetchin’ Bones-styled femme rage to attract mohawks in the crowd, it is pure rock & roll. If Katya belonged to any period of Women In Rock, I’d compare her to Heart at their most punchy (“Barracuda”) and Janis Joplin, whose “Mercedes Benz” Katya covers here. Katya can shout like the best of them, but the ferocious guitar playing on display here jettisons indie amateur hour for a meaty, two-fisted attack.
