Rockbitch was an expat, British, mostly female, metal band, best known for performing nude and incorporating sexual acts and Pagan rituals into their performances.HistoryRockbitch was originally formed in 1984 as Cat Genetica by bassist Amanda Smith-Skinner and guitarist Tony Skinner . The band was later renamed to Red Abyss, in 1989, and drew in other band members from the matriarchal, polyamorous, pagan, feminist community of which Smith-Skinner was the prime founder.Musically, Red Abyss drew on jazz, funk and rock influences dominated by singer Julie Worland's Janis Joplin–influenced vocals. In time, its music took on harder punk and metal edginess. Red Abyss switched to the Rockbitch name when the lineup changed: a male drummer was replaced by Jo Heeley. The line up varied over time with other characters such as 'Luci the Stage Slut', 'The Haema-Whore', Kali and Erzulie the Sex Magik Priestesses all making appearances.The former two were primarily a combination of sexual performance artist and gonzo-camera team; capturing closeups of stage action to be displayed on the projection screen at the rear. They were also responsible for the cued playing of prepared art videos of subject matter relating to the songs.The band toured Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, the UK,, Italy, Spain, Finland, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Estonia and did a promotional tour that involved Canada, while instituting its new theme of liberation through sexual freedom.
