Rock Band Milks The Name Of Lactating Contortionist

REGINA, Saskatchewan (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Be careful when you name your band after a lactating contortionist.

Case in point: The rising rock group Alexisonfire (pronounced Alexis-on-fire), named after “The World’s Only Lactating Contortionist.”

The band adopted the name a few years ago and only recently discovered the real Alexis has made quite a name for herself working at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch near Carson City, Nevada.

As singer George Pettit points out: “If you have a couple hundred bones, you can go have sex with her.”

Pettit is impressed by Alexis’ resume, including the HBO series, Cathouse, adding: “We didn’t know she was such a hard worker.”

He also sees similarities between his band and Alexis’ skills. As Pettit puts it, “[She] reminds me of rock bands like us – sleazy and outcast and sensitive all at once.”

Alexisonfire begin a U.S. tour on October 11 in support of their latest disc, Crisis.
