RASPUTINAPioneers in the use of cello as the sole instrument within a rock band, Rasputina has been inspiringyoung string players to commit a number of musical sins since 1996. The group's concept was written asa manifesto, and manifested accordingly by directress Melora Creager as a wily subterfuge for a plot toopen audiences to adventure. The funny, the sad, the heavy, the tender-- it can all exist together.Employing elaborate costuming spanning a number of historical periods, Rasputina brings marginalizedhistorical female figures and stories to light in the pop form, using archetypal characters such as Indianprincesses, Hawaiian handmaidens and Medieval queens. Melora last performed in Europe withNirvana, on their final tour in 1994. Over the years, Rasputina has performed/recorded with MarilynManson, Porno For Pyros, Cheap Trick, Goo Goo Dolls and many others. Hardened road-dogs, and withmore than 7 albums under their belt, Rasputina continues to amaze and amuse.
