Brody Dalle Announces Formation of New Band Entitled Spinnerette

The Distillers' Frontwoman to Begin Recording Spinnerette's Debut Album in Summer of 2007

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- Brody Dalle -- known as the lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist for punk band The Distillers -- has formed a new band called Spinnerette, which will begin recording their debut album in Los Angeles in 2007. Alain Johannes, who has worked with rock luminaries such as PJ Harvey, Eagles of Death Metal, Chris Cornell, and No Doubt, will produce and play on the album.

After the release and touring cycle of The Distillers' third album and debut for Sire Records, "Coral Fang," Dalle had written a batch of songs with plans to go back into the studio to record them for a future release. "But," Dalle reflects, "the songs seemed out of context and inappropriate for The Distillers. I felt ambivalent about sharing them with anyone."

In 2005, Dalle became pregnant with her first child with husband and Queens of the Stone Age's frontman Joshua Homme. After the birth of daughter Camille, Dalle is now excited to get back into the writing and recording process for Spinnerette. "Music is so much a part of who I am at my core," she says. "I had been storing so many ideas, soaking up everything like a sponge. Now I'm working on some of the most articulate music and lyrics I've written."

In addition to Dalle and Johannes, Tony Bevilacqua (The Distillers) is also a member of Spinnerette. Dalle calls the new group "a band of gypsies" that she will not entertain comparisons to The Distillers. "Spinnerette gets a clean slate," Dalle insists. "She gets to start over and be the new kid in town, only she ain't no kid. She's quirky and sexy and she f***s around." Dalle will say that the Distillers do still exist, "just not as you know it."

So why create a new band? "I've evolved," she explains. "And musically speaking, there are other ways to get your point across. Before I had a baby, I felt 13 years old emotionally, constantly tortured by my own reactionary behavior. It's impossible for one to stay in this state and offer the world something more. I ain't no teenage girl -- have you seen my a**? It ain't waif-ish!"

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
