Hollywood Doll is an Essex-based band whose musical style reflects the best of Glam, Punk and Sleaze Rock. The band was the brain-child of lead guitarist, Matt Rowe who approached bass player, KT Glitz and Hollywood Doll was born in June 2008. Matt and K.T. were later joined by Charlie Webster on drums. The band had two singers throughout the following year, neither of whom quite fit the bill. In May 2009 Charlie decided he’d rather play guitar, so in June 2009 Steve Doll was recruited as drummer. A more concerted effort was made to find a singer and the perfect representation of Hollywood Doll arrived in the form of Marie Repulsive in September 2009. In November 2009 Charlie decided to work on another project, leaving the band as a four-piece. The idea had always been to have a five-piece band and the line-up was completed with the recruitment of Graham Mortis as rhythm guitarist in February 2010.
In May 2010 Hollywood Doll played their debut gig at K.T.’s local pub, Shaw Farm, in South Woodham Ferrers. The gig was a success, the band were well received and within a week the band were booked to play again at another Southend bar.
