Flashback Interview (1988): VIXEN Vocalist JANET GARDNER About The Band’s Newly Released Debut Album

In 1988, Vixen unleashed their self-titled debut album and hit the road like a pack of rock ‘n’ roll wolves on a mission. Metal Express Radio scored a backstage pass to chat with vocalist Janet Gardner just before Vixen stormed the stage as The Scorpions’ support act. Janet spilled the beans on how the band got its groove, their musical muses, their image, and what it was like to be an all-female hard rock act at the time. She even shared thoughts about what would be different on the next Vixen album. And as for those Spinal Tap moments on tour? Oh, you betcha!

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
