Album Notes
New York, NY, USA

If you know the reference behind 'Shiny Mama,' then you have some insight into the mind of Ukrainian-born vocal maven Yana Chupenko. Shiny Mama, Yana's brainchild, has but one ambition: to rock. Yana, who has been playing music for years (first in the seminal all-female punk band PMS, then in the metal-core act Wench), delivers an all out vocal assault laced with an unrelenting catchiness.

The music has been compared to Guns & Roses, or a ballsier version of Bad Company or Heart, but such comparisons neglect the unique sultriness and power of Yana's voice.

For more information, press reviews etc.., please visit Shiny Mama's official website at and keep in touch with the band on at

Please note that the proper audio songlist is:

This is the correction:

1. Got a Thing - is actually Honeybear
2. Honeybear - is Got a Thing
3. Evil Lover - is Little Angel
4. Back in Usa - is I love you
5. Little Angel - is Long Live RocknRoll
6. I Love You - is Sleazy
7. Rover - is Back in USA
8. Sleazy - is Rover
9. Long Live Rocknroll - is Evil Lover

Editorial Review:

Album Description: What Comes Around – Goes Around

Yana Chupenko and company unleash a sonic assault of pure, unadulterated rock on this first full length release by New York's, Shiny Mama. Yana's sultry voice carries the tunes, which are a mix of straight-ahead rock and roll and punk/metal. The hooks are not sparse and the whole disc spins as one incredible over-indulgence in rock mayhem.

Shiny Mama are New York bombastic glamour queens through and through, led by one
Shiny Mama
Ok, so right after this demo hits the streets, Shiny Mama starts going through some major restructuring. I don’t know exactly what’s going down, but I can tell you that it has something to do with hard drugs and death threats. Christ, we’re looking at one hell of a rock n’ roll demo already and we haven’t even got to the music yet.
Shiny Mama are New York bombastic glamour queens through and through, led by one of rock n’ roll’s first ever bombastic glamour queens, the Ukrainian-born kills for thrills goddess, Yana Chupenko. Yana got her start on the Lower East Side many moons ago, fronting both P.M.S. and Wench, but now, with Shiny Mama, she’s taken the female-infused punk brawl she helped invent and fused it with a heavy dose of flash metal and spazzy lounge rock. The result? Well, it’s sleazy and heavy and glittery all at the same time and once Yana starts in with her Ian Astbury/Tina Turner/Blondie whirling dervish of high kicks, martini shakes, and nasty vocals, you’ll be wishing this one had more than five songs. Best on deck here is opener Got a Thing, a chugging arena rocker that’s a Sonic Temple blast of Weirdorama ribaldry and Ronnie James Dio passion, if you can imagine such a thing. Followers Back in USA, Rover, and Evil Lover pretty much follow the same formula with slinky sex, rabid raunch, and dance fever thrown in for good measure. Last but not least is a blazin’ cover of Rainbow’s Long Live Rock N’ Roll. Sure, it’s been done before, but this is the sexiest version you’ll ever hear, I guarantee it, no matter how much you want to make love to RJD.

It’s hard to figure out how Shiny Mama’s still circulating the club circuit and not playing under the lasers and smoke of some bigger venue, but hey, let’s face it, the only ones who like this sexy flash metal stuff are you and me. Plus, this is only their second demo in the last few years and there’s only two of them left now in the band anyway, so who knows what’ll happen next. But get your hands on this one, for a glorious throwback, an evil kiss on the lips, or just so you’ll have some point of reference when you’re spinning Sister Sin or Vanity Ink, ‘cause Liz and Stiina owe much of their sound to Yana. ________________________________________________________

She has looks, style, and an incredible voice.
Yana used to sing for a lower east side bratgirl outfit called PMS in the late 80's, and then later with fem-metallers WENCH. She has looks, style, and an incredible voice. I'd heard she was still going strong in a more straight-ahead rock mode with a band - Shiny Mama, When they got booked into a 'Rock Candy' night at Don Hills I made a point to attend.. even finding the time in the middle of electroclash 2002. It was a welcome antidote to the cool pose & mime posse. Yana warmly clasped the crowd to her bosom and then rocked them with enough vocal low-end torque to render much hosiery defunct.

First thing I need to say about Shiny Mama: Damn, Yana Chupenko can sing.
Shiny Mama/Shiny Mama
Shiny Mama Music

First thing I need to say about Shiny Mama: Damn, Yana Chupenko can sing. The front woman of this Manhattan rock band is a seasoned artist whose operatic background comes forth not in lofty vocal range (ala Pat Benatar) but in pure lung power. It was such a relief to hear real singing, not nasal whining. Can I tell you how much I hate nasal and whiny? Yana’s sultry vocal style is sexy like Debbie Harry, but more lioness than pussycat, and soulful like a harder Heart. The music on the self titled album goes from 70’s/80’s arena-rock to metal to punk, each track offering a distinct sound and melodic hook, delivering soaring elements that exude a Cult vibe in rock-pop songs such as "Honeybear" to Ziggy Stardust-esque edges in "You’re Beautiful." And cheeky lyrics such as-- My car has a flat/And I lost my favorite cat--on "I Love You" keep this serious rock band above the heavy metal grim palate to staying on the "lighter-fare" side of the menu.

Not that there is anything light going on in the line-up. Gathering from the Shiny Mama bio, the members are formerly of recognizable bands-- Noel Rockwood (lead guitar/backing vocals, The Snapdragons); Jonny Cragg (drums/ backing vocals, Spacehog, ); Michael Denarie (bass guitar/backing vocals)--and respected musical backgrounds. Yana, herself, sprouted on the lower east side of Manhattan and started P.M.S., a punk/metal girl-band that made the college radio circuit in the 80‘s. She later spread her talents out in Wench which toured Europe with Agnostic Front, before forming Shiny Mama, a band that expresses her tough roots in rock. All the above is evident in this no studio gimmicks recording. Tight. Powerful. Straight-up stuff.

What can I say? Shiny Mama rocks. And again, while listening to Shiny Mama, Yana injects such rock-mama crass-itude in the ear, I’m considering putting "Fuck" back in my daily vocabulary. (And it took me years to get it out!) Oh yeah. And she’s beautiful, smart, ambitious. Russian glam meow! A business woman (VP at Toni &Tina Cosmetics) by day, rock-vixen by night. A shiny example for any cool-grrrl. We should support this sistah!

Okay, enough Yana, Yana, Yana. If Shiny Mama ever bleeps on the club radar. Just go. I am. Unless they’re in straight jackets, I can’t imagine they’d be anything but atomic.

In the meantime, get the CD for a dose of some booty-kickin’ rock!
