Having made a name for themselves on the Israeli dance and club scene, Terry Poison a trio hellbent of delivering quality electro dance have now arrived in Europe and on British soil.
Earlier this month, the fashion conscious girls, Petite Meller, Louise Kahn and Gili Saar performed at a gig DJ'd by fellow Heeb Mark Moore, famed for not just his dj'ing but also fronting late 80s dance band S'Express.
The three girls who have earned the nickname Jewish Charlieís Angels have built up a solid reputation in Tel Aviv's gay scene which has allowed them to build up a core gay audience as well as to grow their appeal to the mainstream straight audience.
Imagine a cross between the sci-fi influenced Sigue Sigue Sputnik meets London girl duo Shampoo.
With song titles like Smack Snack and Buzz on the Bell, their music offers tantilising tease with classy sleaze.
"We love music that you can sing along to. Itís pop, electronic, danceable, with a great rock ní roll vibe", lead singer Louise told TotallyJeiwsh.
Behind the girl's as their producer is Bruno Grife who works with them in fulfilling their vision of creating quirky electro dance.
The hype is strong for the girls, but they have been delivering beyond the hype. "A hype in Israel is really, really easy to get. Itís a small place and everyone talks about everything. Youíre going to get all the attention. But to build a serious career out of it is impossible," Gili commented.
Terry Poison are certainly on a mission to win over fans across the world and through their non-stop gigging, MySpace site and 24/7 chutzpah look set to show that the Israeli club scene produces some of the most innovative and exciting bands around.
