Well, this might just be the most interesting news you read today.
Exclaim reports that singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards has formed a (possibly fake) new all-girl band called Modern Beaver.
“I have some time off in November and I’m working on this all-lady band called Modern Beaver,” Edwards told the site, calling it a “Canadian explosion of sexual fantasy and sloppy rock ‘n’ roll.”
When the site tried to insinuate the everything wasn’t on the up-and-up, the band took to Twitter demanding a correction.
Spinner has some more information on Modern Beaver, such as its members, which will reportedly include Edwards, Rose Cousins, Jenn Grant, Hannah Georgas and Julie Fader (the latter two Edwards toured with this year). And if Twitter is to be believed, they might’ve just found themselves a drummer in the form of Sera Cahoone.
Edwards talked about the band some more with Exclaim, revealing that she already bought the domain name ModernBeaver.com and that “Modern Beaver’s going to be the most lucrative thing I’ve ever done in my life, just because of the band name… No one’s going to give a fuck about the music.”
We’ll be glued to @modernbeaver on Twitter in anticipation of updates.
