This is the second band that I have been sent music by a member to put up on this blog. Which I am very happy to do so if any other Philly bands want to be on email me. Here is the info on Rocknoceros.
Chris – Drums and backing vocals, is now an artist in NYC and was in The Hunks and Scarpetta after he moved to NYC.
Tom came to me one day and said “wanna be in a band? i want to put a band together that’s like the punk version of Kiss”. So we always dressed up in crazy outfits. Tom had some sort of lion suit (or something like that!). We played a lot of parties (Funk Dungeon, Rodman St. block party etc…) When we played at Khyber the 1st time, Debbie Katon (our singer) wore this home made bullet bra contraption, like the one Madonna made famous but it was before Madonna did it!
Not much else to say. It was my favorite band that I’ve been in and a lot of fun. I still think that the songs were good. – From Dan
Deb and Chris were art students at PCA so they might have gotten class credit for making Rocknoceros outfits. I remember going to a theatrical costume shop in Philly that had these sales where you could fill a bag with old costumes for five dollars. Dan found a sort of colonial minuteman coat, and I found a leopard suit with the ass torn out and some red lamé fabric that I made pants out of. And I spray painted a pair of platform shoes bright yellow that I nearly broke an ankle on. Chris dressed in total whacked-out drag and even somehow made huge and scary strap-on female genitalia that looked hilarious when he sat down at the drums and hiked up his skirt. – From Tom
