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!
