Canada's Bif Naked looks like a cross between Cleopatra
and Joan Jett, and sounds like a cross between No Doubt
- and Joan Jett. Born in India, Bif spent years playing in
hardcore punk bands and indulging in excessive rock 'n'
roll. Now she's cleaned up her act (notice the 'x' marks on
her hands), but she obviously hasn't forgotten her
Maturity and spirituality may have mellowed Bif, but it
hasn't done anything of the sort to her music. Her
combination of soul-baring lyrics, relentless pure-rock
power chords, and punk rock delivery is as irresistible as
she is. And despite a somewhat menacing outward
appearance, (note the tattoos and piercings) one listen to
Bif's music reveals humor and accessibility as well as
punk rock aggression.
Moment of Weakness, the irresistible first single off her
major label debut I Bificus, currently has the likes of
Rolling Stone, Billboard and Sonicnet eager to be seen
chatting Bif up. It was also recently deemed buzzworthy
by those with the magic wand over at MTV. Want to know
what all the fuss is about? Check the clips, and be sure
to catch Bif when she shows up in a town near you.
