Lead singers and lyricists Chaz Kourday and Lonni Bahls met Sweet Georgia while living in Berlin in 2006. When they arrived in New York in early 2007, they began working with independent producer Electronathan, who co-wrote the music with Kourday and Bahls. Soon, they were discovered by promoter Daniel Nardicio, who introduced them to the downtown scene with a series of jaw-dropping performances. They have lived and performed in London, Sydney, Florence, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. These international sex sensations now fully reside in New York City, where they have performed with such nightlife icons as Johnny McGovern, Amanda Lepore, and Cazwell. They have graced the stages of such NYC venues as Joe's Pub, Mercury Lounge, the Zipper Factory, the Delancey, Luna Lounge, Don Hill’s, Vlada, Piano’s, Sugarland, the Javits Center, the Slipper Room, as well as BeBar in Washington, DC. The album also features vocals by Steph C, Chocolate Love, Winnie, Alexandria of Alaria, and Robbyne Kaamil.
Their music video for the hit single “All I Want (Is a Cute Blond Boy)” has become a Youtube sensation. Directed by Stan Zimmerman (Roseanne, Gilmore Girls), it features a shocking shower scene cameo by Michael Musto. The video has been handpicked by Logo for airing in the fall on a new late night unedited program.
In addition to the aggressively addictive pansexual title track, the album also features the euro-pop anthem INTERNATIONAL WHORE, the controversial Christian hymn SECOND COMING, the vintage 80’s COMFORTABLE, the acid lounge beats of BY THE END OF THE NIGHT, the satirical ALL I WANT, the lush dance track DANCE PARTY (UP YOUR BUTT), and a shocking song featuring one doctor’s most unusual weight loss plan, entitled DORA'S DIET. SUPERSTAR and its companion club remix bookend this most unorthodox masterclass in whoredom.
Here’s what other critics have said about Whore’s Mascara:
"Mixing pop-perfection female vocals, an American male accent and a Noel Coward-esque English gentleman accent, Whore's Mascara sing as if they're in conversation, taking the piss out of each other and egging each other on to divulge more information on their sexual conquests. It's fabulous stuff; the kind of provocative pop that makes the Scissor Sisters look like nuns."

"Lust, love, desire, pansexuality, it's all there....Onstage, Whore's Mascara radiates passion and unapologetic perversion. The trio belt out a set of cheeky crowd pleasers as the Whorettes, a relatively new addition to their live shows, bump and grind atop five foot speakers in six inch heels. Kourday and Bahls take turns man-handling Sweet Georgia, sticking their tongues down her throat and behaving in a generally lascivious manner...Pretty soon New York is going to have to share its favorite international whores, as they prepare to unleash their debut album, LIKE THIS BUT SEXY, upon the world. The album is a dizzying electro-pop orgy, equal parts B-52s and Scissor Sisters." ---- John Russell, HX Magazine
"This sexed-up singing group has a fab new video for their catchy song 'All I Want.'" ----Time Out New York
"Beat beauties Whore's Mascara offers a glammed and gorgeous performance...mop up that drool!"----Next Magazine
"Downtown's Current It Band...These whores are certainly worth the price. They're definitely all that we want! " ----HX Magazine
"Whore's Mascara is one of those acts that is difficult to describe to friends without getting a little confused yourself. Is it music? Performance art? Comedy? A depraved celebration of sex and drugs? An intellectual exploration of the darkest corners of your sexual psyche? A wild ride that leaves you feeling breathless and a bit molested? The answer is wonderfully, dizzyingly, and confoundingly all of the above...reminding you that sometimes it is only in the deep folds of incisive wit that the truth can be found." ----Noize Magazine
