First inductee into the Troma Institute for Gifted Youth, 19 year old Kansas Bowling, has just released a music video for Los Angeles female fronted rock-n-roll band Kill My Coquette. The song, “Post-Teenage Angst” is the 5th track on the debut EP for Kill My Coquette. The music video is will premiere on the Troma Movies YouTube channel, it was announced today by Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger.
Conceptually Ms. Bowling’s video is both an informed and original stylistic mix of 90’s riot-grrl rebellion and irony, as a parade of pageant contestants showcase disturbing gags delivered with a cheesecake burlesque flare. Further, Kansas continues to reference her inspirations, as she did in her with a surprise ending that confidently asserts which cult horror heroes and heroines she encountered very early on.
Kill My Coquette released the debut self-titled album that includes “Post-Teenage Angst” in 2015. Based in Hollywood, California, the band is fronted by Natalie Denise Sperl and has played shows with Ramone’s legend, Richie Ramone and the band cites and mention musical inspiration from bands like Social Distortion, The Velvet Undergound and Hole.
Already at the forefront of the cutting edge filmmakers of her generation, Kansas Bowling has been featured as “The New Guard” among her generation in “W” Magazine in the April 2016 issue, among other young people to watch including Willow Smith and Zendaya. Her directorial debut movie, B.C. Butcher, was released in January on Troma Now, Troma Entertainment’s online video streaming on demand service, available for only $4.99.
