You have to feel sorry for Brodie Dalle. If any woman in music is destined to be defined by her beaus, it is her. Which is tough, because she's far more deserving of success than other serial starfuckers like Courtney Love.

On the other hand, she doesn't always help herself. The Distillers were raw and unfocused, a situation leading only to a massive internal collapse when the music press came beating down their door. This time, however, it is Dalle herself who has been talking up Spinnerette. Which, frankly, is a mistake. There is nothing special about them, you would be hard pressed to remember one song half an hour later and however engaging a frontwoman Brodie is, she's not working with any decent material here.
