Any fan of punk rock will be well acquainted with Dinah Cancer and 45 Grave, but with a new book on its way you’ll soon be able to learn more about these icons than ever before. Do you wanna party? IT’S PARTY TIME!
From the Press Release:
In 1979 a fierce, driven woman fronted a band that would revolutionize a certain sound many had called Ghoul Rock and inspired a pure infusion of horror and music. The lady behind the microphone with gothic beauty, manic and fiery energy, and a stage presence and persona that made her a queen was Dinah Cancer and the legendary band was known as 45 Grave.
Her life in the punk scene became a legacy, and after sharing the stage with acts like Black Flag, The Misfits, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, The Cramps, and The Damned, Dinah grew to be a symbol of strength, power, and fantasy for many fans through the decades.
After success with songs like their single Party Time which became the anthem for the classic film Return Of The Living Dead, 45 Grave became a staple in the horror community that would never die. Now it is time to tell the story of Dinah Cancer and her metamorphosis and journey to become one of punk’s reigning Queens.
Fear Front Publishing is honored and proud to announce a collaboration between the woman behind her persona, Mary Sims, and horror entertainer Rob DiLauro to give music and horror fans a true biographical account of her life, career, as well as her legacy that will never enter the grave. She is 45 Grave, She is Dinah Cancer, and her story is coming to Fear Front Publishing in late 2017.
