Johnette Napolitano

Best known for her work as lead singer and bassist in the '80s and early-'90s alternative rock trio Concrete Blonde, Johnette Napolitano is also a poet, social activist, soundtrack composer, and sculptor. Born in Hollywood on September 22, 1957, Napolitano lurked on the fringes of the Los Angeles punk and new wave scene, working at the legendary Gold Star Studios until she formed the duo Dream 6 with guitarist Jim Mankey. The pair recorded a self-titled 1982 EP produced by Jim's brother Earle Mankey (like Jim, a former member of the first lineup of Sparks, and at the time one of the hottest producers on the L.A. new wave scene), which attracted the attention of IRS Records boss Miles Copeland. With a new drummer in Chicago transplant Harry Rushakoff and a new name supposedly bestowed by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe that was supposed to connote the band's mix of hard and soft elements, Concrete Blonde released their self-titled debut in 1987. This was quickly followed by Free, Bloodletting (featuring the group's biggest hit, "Joey"), Walking in London, and Mexican Moon, before Concrete Blonde split in 1995.

Napolitano then moved on to two short-lived projects, Vowel Movement (a collaboration with Holly Beth Vincent of Holly & the Italians) and Pretty & Twisted (with the late Marc Moreland, formerly of Wall of Voodoo), as well as occasional Concrete Blonde reunion albums. Following this, Napolitano began a second career as soundtrack composer for small and medium-budget indie films such as Wicker Park and Underworld. She also released a pair of largely improvised and mostly electronic albums, Sketchbook and Sketchbook 2, in 2002 and 2006. Johnette Napolitano's first proper solo album, Scarred, followed in the spring of 2007. ~ Stewart Mason

I got to see her twice, the first time in Portland with Pretty & Twisted and then finally in Honolulu with Concrete Blonde (they had cancelled 3 previous concerts) She sang a cover of the Bee Gees It's only words that gave me Goosebumps. It was simply amazing... unfortunatel y , I can't find a recording of that cover anywhere...

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but you won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

Listen to the guitar work on Lullaby. It is Mankey at his very best. This is a very under rated band that should have enjoyed much more success than they did. I still enjoy them today and had the pleasure of seeing them once. Excellent

Was totally blessed to see her at First Avenue in Minneapolis several years ago. One of my FAVORITE singer/songw r i t e r s - and she rocks the bass!

Have you heard her version of 'The Scientist'? As good as anything with the Blonde. There is definitely some sort of magic that happens when you throw in Mankey's guitar. Long time fan of all things Johnette. Soul Mate, no mating involved ;-)
