Swahili Blonde may be the task of percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Nicole Turley, formerly of underground LA rings WEAVE! and Seventh Ocean. A former professional photographer and dancer, Turley used drumming when she is at her early twenties when her friend Ivory asked her to maintain a fresh group that became Seventh Ocean. During her stint with WEAVE!, Turley performed with performers including Warpaint and Flea and John Frusciante’s improvisatory music group. While she used these groupings, Turley also done Swahili Blonde’s music, merging live and designed drums with dub, Krautrock, post-punk, no influx affects, and topping everything with her vocals. She recruited Frusciante, violinist Laena Myers-Ionita, Duran Duran bassist John Taylor, Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa, and various other close friends to record with her, and Swahili Blonde released the debut one Elixir Fixir digitally on Manimal Information in ’09 2009. The next year, the record Man Meat came, as well as the group’s cover of David Bowie’s “Crimson Money” made an appearance on Manimal’s David Bowie tribute.
