Fem2Fem

Fem2Fem was an American techno group who released two albums. With actress Lezlie Deane of Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare as a member, Fem2Fem were the first and (so-far only) openly lesbian pop group to chart, although the band did contain straight women in addition to open homosexuals.[1] But only some of the members of Fem2Fem were lesbians, and according to lead singer Michelle Crispin their intentions at the beginning were to promote a healthy view of sexuality with their music, regardless of sexual orientation. However, an appearance by the band in the December 1993 issue of Playboy magazine and the non-political nature of their sapphic lyrics led to criticism by some in the LGBT community that the band was trying to make a fast buck off playing to the prurient interests of a heterosexual male audience.

Lezlie Deane

Lezlie Deane (born June 1, 1964) is an American singer, musician, rollerderby athlete, and actress who has starred in film, made television appearances and has toured the world as a rock musician. She was once best known for her roles in horror films including 976-EVIL, Girlfriend from Hell (1989), and the horror movie Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) in the role of Tracy, and also her association with the Dance-Pop band, Fem2Fem; however, her current band Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs has created quite a buzz in the Glam Punk, #Glitterpunk, Glitter Rock Revival and Rock world where they have achieved cult status as well as winning an Independent Music Award (Vox Populi “voice of the people”) for best rock song "Don't Wanna".

Deane was born Leslie Denise Lonon, (the "s" in her first name being a typo by the hospital where she was born) in Corsicana, Texas. Aside from her big screen roles, Deane has made guest appearances on such television shows as The Bronx Zoo, 21 Jump Street, Hunter, Freddy's Nightmares, Dynasty, and Pacific Blue. She was also once a member of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders squad, but was fired after 6 weeks for punching a choreographer.

In the 1990s she was recruited by producers Peter Rafelson and Michael Lewis to join the dance-pop group Fem2Fem, and toured Europe and North America as an opening act for Nine Inch Nails (NIN) and Marilyn Manson. Songs from their second album, Animus, generated three top-40 singles, including "Obsession" and "Where Did Love Go?", reaching #1 on the British import charts. After touring with NIN, Lezlie recorded early demos of songs (that would be revealed later in her current band) with musicians Josh Freese, Danny Lohner, and Robyn Finck. Fem2Fem is also remembered for an appearance in PLAYBOY magazine.In 2007, Deane was named Captain and Coach of The Slaughterers, one of five roller derby teams under the Dallas Derby Devils and coached them to 3 consecutive first place seasons. However, another project much closer to her heart was taking precedence and so she left the league.

Deane formed the band Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs. Dubbed "Glitter Punks" by their hardcore following in the UK, the group is known for their unique blend of 1970s Punk Rock and 1970s Glitter Rock. Scary Cherry and the Bangs tour extensively, have received licensing of several songs and have released one 5 song EP, referred to only as by the generic title "Limited Edition 5 Song EP) and a full-length album, "Girl" both to critical acclaim. Lezlie has been a volunteer board member for the Girls Rock Dallas non-profit music camp since its inception in 2011.

List of Nine Inch Nails concert tours

Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock act, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio. Since 1988, Nine Inch Nails has performed throughout the world, including tours in North America, South America, Europe, Oceania, and Asia. During its earliest incarnations, Nine Inch Nails as a live band acted as supporting acts on tours for bands and musicians such as Skinny Puppy, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Peter Murphy, and Guns N' Roses. Subsequent tours have featured Nine Inch Nails as the headlining act, with support from bands such as Unkle, Marilyn Manson, Atari Teenage Riot, and A Perfect Circle.

Nine Inch Nails' live performances contrast with its in-studio counterpart.

Reznor writes and performs nearly all Nine Inch Nails studio material, with occasional instrumental and vocal contributions from others artists. However, Reznor has typically assembled groups of backing musicians to interpret songs for tours and other live performances. The live-band lineup has changed constantly throughout the band's history, with front man Reznor remaining the only constant on vocals and guitar. Notable musicians who have contributed to live performances include Richard Patrick, Chris Vrenna, Jeordie White, Robin Finck, Josh Freese, Alessandro Cortini, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Ilan Rubin, Mike Garson and Pino Palladino.

Playboy

Playboy is an American men's lifestyle and entertainment magazine. It was founded in Chicago in 1953, by Hugh Hefner and his associates, and funded in part by a $1,000 loan from Hefner's mother. Notable for its centerfolds of nude and semi-nude models (Playmates), Playboy played an important role in the sexual revolution and remains one of the world's best-known brands, having grown into Playboy Enterprises, Inc. (PEI), with a presence in nearly every medium. In addition to the flagship magazine in the United States, special nation-specific versions of Playboy are published worldwide.

The magazine has a long history of publishing short stories by novelists such as Arthur C. Clarke, Ian Fleming, Vladimir Nabokov, Saul Bellow, Chuck Palahniuk, P. G. Wodehouse, Roald Dahl, Haruki Murakami, and Margaret Atwood. With a regular display of full-page color cartoons, it became a showcase for notable cartoonists, including Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Cole, Eldon Dedini, Jules Feiffer, Shel Silverstein, Erich Sokol, Roy Raymonde, Gahan Wilson, and Rowland B. Wilson. Playboy features monthly interviews of notable public figures, such as artists, architects, economists, composers, conductors, film directors, journalists, novelists, playwrights, religious figures, politicians, athletes, and race car drivers. The magazine generally reflects a liberal editorial stance, although it often interviews conservative celebrities.

After a year-long removal of most nude photos in Playboy magazine, the March–April 2017 issue brought back nudity.

Self Destruct Tour

The Self Destruct Tour was a concert tour in support of industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails' album The Downward Spiral, which took place in early 1994, running until mid-1996, and was broken into eight legs.
