Pegasus Nominations

Year Category
2005 Best Performer

Where else can you find medieval and spiritual tunes, superheroines and bunny ears in one melting pot of energetic music-making?

Divine Strumpet is a feisty all-woman band whose eclectic repertoire ranges from the serious and sublime to the strange and silly. Forged of four talented singer-songwriters in their own right - Talis Kimberley, Rachel Georgeson (nee Shurmer), Mich Sampson and Marilisa Valtazanou - they will blow your mind with a startling array of instruments and wide range of filk and original songs, traditional tunes and unusual covers, all given that special Divine Strumpet twist!

You were the superheroes no-one ever heard of
Yours was the comicbook that nobody else but me
Ever read
Or admitted to whoa -
There was a secret code for readers to dechiper
There was a pendant and a diary and a Supercat badge
Lucky me
I had the whole darned lot whoa

Supercats, Supercats, Hercula, Fauna and Electra, whoa
Supercats, Supercats, I wish I could recall a single adventure whoa
Supercats, Supercats, whizzing around and wearing jumpsuits (well, didn't everyone?)
Couldn't wait, every week, for my beloved Supercats.

Hercula's tall but being tall is over-rated
Fauna's chameleon abilities are way under-used
And Helen's wet
That isn't her fault, whoa -
I think I figured out why Helen was the captain -
I guess they had to make her something 'cos the girl didn't have
Any powers
Poor Helen! ('Poor Helen! Poor Helen!') whoa

Supercats, Supercats, Hercula, Fauna and Electra, whoa
Supercats, Supercats, I wish I could recall a single adventure whoa
Supercats, Supercats, whizzing around and wearing jumpsuits (well, didn't everyone?)
Couldn't wait, every week, for my beloved Supercats.

(I never wanted wanted to be) Hercula with her long blonde hair
(I never wanted wanted to be) Earthgirl Helen in the captain's chair
(I never wanted wanted to be) shy Fauna hiding anywhere
When Electra could go 'FZZZZZZT!'

Electra rocks!

You were the superheroes no-one ever heard of
Yours was the comicbook that nobody else but me
Ever read
Or admitted to whoa -
Now I don't have a single issue of the comic
That you appeared in though I know that I once had the lot
And the badge
Lucky me
And the diary
Lucky me
And the pendant
Lucky me
And the code
Lucky, lucky me

Supercats, Supercats, Hercula, Fauna and Electra, whoa
Supercats, Supercats, I wish I could recall a single adventure whoa
Supercats, Supercats, whizzing around and wearing jumpsuits (well, didn't everyone?)
Couldn't wait, every week, for my beloved Superc-
Couldn't wait, every week, for my beloved Superc-
Couldn't wait, every week, for my beloved Supercats.

'FZZZZZZT!'
