ABOUT SHITTING GLITTER
Shitting Glitter is an American queercore/avant-pop band inspired by new wave and electronic rock. The band was formed in 2001 by Amy Crosby (vocals), Devin Tait (synths and vocals) and Von "Mag" Edwards (guitar and vocals). Originally, they aimed to parlay their outsider art rock into commercial success as an openly-LGBTQ band. The lineup fluctuated until the band released its debut album Post No Bills in 2003, at which time the lineup included Crosby, Tait, and guitarist/producer Brandon Strecker (credited as Brandon Glen). This lineup of the band released two more albums and several singles and EPs. Perhaps their biggest success was the track "Slut Buffet," which was remixed by Solar City and became an underground "hit" in gay nightclubs. In 2010, Tait left the band with Crosby the sole remaining original member. Crosby passed away in February, 2021 but her memory lives on through her art, music, and all those she left a mark on during her time on earth.
"Microscope" Out Now
2018 was a rough time for a lot of folks and Amy wrote this song as her own expression of what she felt was going on in her life at the time. After her passing in 2021, it was completed with contributions from former band members AJ Anderson and Von Edwards.
