Danger Danger frontman To Tribute Fat Chicks
Ted appears alongside his Poley/Rivera collaborator Vic Rivera, who also produced and arranged the music for their track. The duo breathes new life into the song "All Lips N' Hips" by the Electric Boys, who themselves recently reunited after a 15-year hiatus. A surprise MTV hit in 1990, "All Lips N' Hips" paints the sonic picture of an exotic dancer endowed with generous feminine curvature
A returning veteran of SplitScreen Entertainment tribute albums, Rivera was also featured on the 2008 release "Kiss My Ankh: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent," teaming up with vocalist Kelli McCloud on a haunting recreation of "Love Kills" by the Vinnie Vincent Invasion. "I was very happy when they approached me to be a part of this next project," offers Vic Rivera, "especially since I have a great appreciation for full-figured women! Even before they told me which songs were up for consideration, I knew I wanted to do 'All Lips N' Hips.' I've always interpreted this song to be about an especially curvy and voluptuous girl, so we adjusted a few lines to drive that point home. Naturally, I had to involve my partner-in-crime Ted Poley to sing. All in all, it's the perfect addition to this long overdue tribute to the zaftig woman!"
Though Poley himself was not a contributor to the aforementioned "KISS MY ANKH" album, he did provide inspiration for the bonus track "Ted Poley" (a parody of the Kiss song "Unholy"), written and performed by rock & roll comic C.C. Banana and featuring guitars by Chris Caffery.
"I was so flattered to be the subject of a song on the first SplitScreen Entertainment release, I just had to sign on for the follow-up!" enthuses Ted Poley. "Even though I was a little concerned that the tune might not be right for my voice, Vic found a way to make everything sound great. We couldn't have had more fun tracking this song! I hope everyone approves of our own take on the Electric Boys original."
"WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks" is scheduled for an August 31, 2010 release and is now available for pre-order directly from SplitScreen Entertainment. The first 500 pre-orders will receive a free instant digital download of "Fat Bottomed Girls," as well as a bonus mini-print of the cover art upon delivery of the album.
