“This is amazing.” – Fan, Grrlfest.
“Encore, encore, encore!” – Fans, Grrlfest.
“My sister is a huge fan.” – Sister’s fan, Found Festival.
“I’m a really big feminist too.” – Fan, Let Them Eat Cake Festival.
“You need to calm down.” – The police, accusing the band of soliciting sex acts, Let Them Eat Cake Festival.

Beginning through internet connections and mutual and self-admiration Expen$$$ive have done appearances and autograph signings at festivals, openings and shopping malls. Since their conception they have lost a drummer, found religion, and experienced an extreme case of exhaustion. Expen$$$ive are inspired by the likes of Brynne Edelsten, The Bad Girl’s Club, Pinterest, the city of Paris, Paris Hilton, Hotels, Pink Champagne and instagram. The group promote feminine value and raise that much of what is often seen as feminine eg. the personal, the emotional, and the aesthetic are beneficial parts of our every day existence. While some dismiss Expen$$$ive as ironic or spoof, the band has infinite self-belief. The artists have no immediate plans to produce any music and their commitment is to their fans, themselves and their brand.

Reviews / Awards

“4.5 Stars… A savage beauty… Dogmeat is as moving as it is horrifying.”
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

“It’s darkly comic, ugly, cynical, anarchic, violent, sexually-charged and in-your-face. I had the thrilling and quintessentially theatrical experience of being on the edge of my seat, continually not knowing what was going to happen next.”
