Trouble in Toyland
In what has so far been an amazing year of band reunions, it seems not all of them have gone as smoothly as hoped. Six months after playing their first show together in 19 years, Babes in Toyland have parted ways with bassist Maureen Herman.
Herman broke the news herself on Facebook, stating: "Due to personal differences, Kat (Bjelland) and Lori (Barbero) have made the decision to tour with someone else. I wish them nothing but the best and hope the tour is a huge success."
Clara Salyer (Prissy Clerks, Total Babe) will be playing with Bjelland and Barbero on the band's upcoming US tour.
It's a shame to see her go, especially so soon after the band reuniting. I'm so grateful I got to see them perform in Manchester together. They put on an amazing show and I was lucky enough to meet them all afterwards.
Herman is currently working on her memoir, titled It's a Memoir, Motherfucker, which is due out next year - personally, I can't wait!
