Maryann Cotton

ARTIST: Maryann Cotton

COUNTRY: Denmark / USA


Mary Ann Cotton was a serial murderer in the time of the victorian England and poisoned 20 people with Arsen until finally she was caught by police and finished here life at the gallows. This wife was a big inspiratin for a joung danish performer to find an artist name. MARYANN COTTON as a name for a band was born. Of course this name has to fit to the music, so its for sure not mainstream. As our danish artist showed his talent at the casting show "Sceen Er din" (what's in other countries a show like "Star search" or a similar format) with his 7inch "Shock me". This title shows the way it goes and so one new song of the forthcoming album "Do you think I'm crazy" goes in the same direction. Shock Rock like it was done y ALICE COOPER, KING DIAMOND and other famous artists. MARYANN COTTON for sure is not worse than these bands and the now five members of the band including Hal Patino, Andy LaRocque, Pete Blakk and Snowy Show (all were playing at KING DIAMOND) know exactly how to transport "shock rock" from the 70s and 80s to 2012. The fifth member and MARYANN COTTON itself is Jackie Patino, the son of Hal Patino who has all the talent his father has too and for luck the same musical preferences.
