Hunx + His Punx
Hunx + His Punx
Hunx and His Punx might be the first ever "girl group" fronted by a flamboyant gay male whose dream in life is to sound like a girl. They have created a unique new sound they refer to as "Young Oldies," a mixture of 50s teenage rock 'n' roll, 60s girl groups and bubblegum pop.

Hunx is that boy you just wanna kiss—maybe after sharing a triple scoop ice cream cone, then roller skating with the Shangri-Las and Redd Kross rotating on a never-ending loop. He's the boy in that picture from your high school yearbook—the one you pasted sparkly red heart stickers all over, then taped inside your locker. He's the boy you fantasize about because he always saves you from your broken heart. You've never met him—but you love him… because you know he believes in love.

Carletta Sue Kay
Carletta Sue Kay is equal parts Marianne Faithful, Joanna Newsom and Emmylou Harris, coupled with the song writing styles of Stephen Merritt and Cole Porter. CSK is named after singer-songwriter Randy Walker's real-life cousin who served a prison sentence for domestic terrorism and threatening to blow-up her ex-boyfriend with a pipe bomb. This is an auspicious inspiration for a musical persona who, performing with an obvious five-o'clock shadow, sings heart-wrenching yet transformative songs of love, life, and relationships told from the perspective of a woman. The debut Carletta Sue Kay LP 'Incongruent' (Kitten Charmer) and. Randy Walker, aka Carletta recorded backing vocals with the Magnetic Fields on their 10th album Love at the Bottom of the Sea (Merge).

"Perhaps the most obvious comparison for Mr. Walker's gender- and genre-bending approach would be Antony Hegarty, the androgynous singer with an angelic voice...but Mr. Walker is more in the realm of sweaty rock 'n' roll than torch songs: his voice, a tenor, can easily slide up and down the scale." --New York Times

"Carletta Sue Kay is the female alter-ego of SF musician Randy Walker, and this identity shift pushes his art in some astonishing directions. Androgynous to its core, and loaded with overtones, his vocal delivery as Carletta Sue Kay can recall Annie Lennox, Gene Ween, and Joanna Newsom, all in the same breath." --Bay Guardian
