One Question Interviews: Bad Cop/Bad Cop

Stacey Dee (Bad Cop/Bad Cop)

SPB: How did you hook up with Fat?

Dee: I was playing pool with Fat Mike after a Loved Ones show that my old band opened for.  We were at the Eagle in San Francisco.  I made him a bet and if I won he was to write a song I got to sing on.  He was kicking my ass and about to knock in the 8 Ball.  I leaned over and whispered "big beautiful titties" in his ear.  He scratched on the 8 Ball and I won!  

Mike doesn't welch on bets.  He was writing the Home Street Home musical and called me in to try out for it.  I sang with everything I had and secured the roll of Sue.  I spent the next 5 years working on the musical.  During a studio session we discussed how there wasn't any women representing the label.  He and Soma discussed putting out a 7" of Bad Cop / Bad Cop.  But, he wanted to see us first.  They came to our show, which was with the most fab drag queens in SF and they loved it.  When I got off stage he said he was gonna put out that 7".  The next day I got a call saying we were getting signed to Fat.  It was my life's dream!
