Ready to lady-rip the stage at their first anniversary show later this month, the eight Denver women behind the world's only all-female Wu-Tang cover group sat down with us to voice their opinions about on-stage nudity, and some other stuff we can't remember due to their mention of on-stage nudity.
Thrillist: Which tracks can we expect to hear at the anniversary show?
Suzi Q. Smith/Method Man: You can expect to hear classic Wu-Tang cuts from 36 Chambers and definitely some newer songs too. It's a very full show, and a wildly entertaining set full of shenanigans and surprises.
Thrillist: Why Wu-Tang? Did you consider other groups before settling on them?
Isis Speaks/Ol' Dirty Bastard: Because De La Soul was the obvious choice, but we all felt like we could easily beat the hell out of a Plug.
Thrillist: Which of you most identify with ODB? Why?
Isis Speaks/Ol' Dirty Bastard: I have really come to understand him as a mercurial genius with no filter. I like to perform as Dirt because it allows me to exist without the filter that keeps the rational individual out of jail. On stage I can let all that reserve go flying out the window and act a damn fool!
Thrillist: Have you ever bombed atomically...on stage?
LadySpeech Sankofa/Ghostface Killa: Every damn time! Every f**ing time I step on stage!
Thrillist: What's the craziest thing that happened at your last live show?
LadySpeech Sankofa/Ghostface Killa: I rocked out with my bra-covered breasts out for most of the show and didn't know 'til the end. Boobs happen. I'm very passionate on stage.
Isis Speaks/Ol' Dirty Bastard: Being propositioned as to whether or not we "accept" male groupies was pretty ill.
Thrillist: Where the hell is Cappadonna? He's way better than U-God, and you just basically had to get a chick named Donna.
Isis Speaks/Ol' Dirty Bastard: The first show was intended to showcase 36 Chambers and Cappadonna didn't actually join the Wu until around 1996. And when was the last time you met a dope chick named Donna? Tell her to get at management.
