Posted February 24, 2020 07:24:48The late Carmen Electras hit the charts in the US in 1988, but there’s no question she was one of the biggest pop stars of her time.
Electra’s songs have been covered by the likes of Britney Spears, the Rolling Stones and Rihanna, but they’re still quite difficult to come by in the States.
So when Carmen Electrars album ‘Electric Guitar’ was released in 2013, it was something of a surprise.
She didn’t make the album for free, but she did pay a royalty for it.
And it’s not only the royalties that she’s got in mind.
Electra, whose real name is Carmen Maria Echeverria, had an interest in electric guitars when she was a child.
It’s said she got her first electric guitar in the early 70s and went on to record several hits with her then-husband.
But her career took a turn for the better after the death of her father in 1998.
And now she’s gearing up to release a new album called Electric Guitar which features an acoustic guitar and two acoustic drums.
Electronica has been around for some time, and now it’s time to see if the style has caught on in Australia.
Read moreElectronica was born in Melbourne in the 1980s, and her music was a hit in Australia when it hit the top of the charts.
But it wasn’t until the late 90s that the style really took off.
Electracy’s influence on pop music is clear, and the fact that she was part of the group ‘Electric Circus’ in the 80s helped cement the term ‘electro-pop’.

The album was recorded in Melbourne with guitarist/vocalist/producer Matt Skiba, who also played drums.
In an interview with the Melbourne radio station 3AW, Skiba said the album was written in the same studio with guitarist Andrew Jackson, bassist John Barlow, drummer Steve Martin and keyboardist Kevin Murphy.
Skiba also said the band were all inspired by different genres of music.
Electronic have been around since 2007 and their first album, ‘Election’, was released two years ago.
Electronical’s latest album ‘Electronic Guitar’ is due for release in 2019.
