Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame say their musical duo is the love child of Tenacious D and Dolly Parton, but Reformed Whores is an even catchier way to describe them.

They have an album out, Ladies Don’t Spit – Reformed Whores, that’s available now, and you can see them record new topical songs regularly online for Internet Action Force.
