about

Kerry Pastine has always gravitated toward an original sound steeped in tradition, but with a modern edge. When it comes to musical projects, she insists on a hint of danger, good times and a damn good dance party. Simplicity rules, but needs to be backed up with taste and musical chops. Until now, she has always hesitated with putting her name on the marquee. But the time is now. It's time to introduce Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene.

Once again she has paired up with longtime partner in crime, Paul Shellooe (both formerly of The Informants). Together in their downtown Denver apartment they wood-shedded for over a year, writing a full-length album of new original material and capturing the sound that they both heard in their heads, but had yet to capture on stage.

The sound is at once familiar, but modern; vintage, but cutting edge. The new songs started straying away from the original demos almost immediately and took on a new life of their own. Some of the best songs from Kerry's past bands have been brought back to fill out the live set and have been given a new lease on life through the original spirit of the Crime Scene. But this ride ain't a vintage Cadillac. This is a souped-up hot rod with bulletproof glass, a modern chassis and a shiny new engine. The perfect vehicle for a life of crime and musical performances born of sin.

The band has just finished recording its first full-length record together and will be releasing the CD, “The Other Side” in August 2014. Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene has both the sound and visuals of the best crime thrillers on film and video shoots for the new songs are scheduled. Come to a live show and you will witness the most dangerous sights and sounds of film noir from yesterday and today through live DJ/video sets by the band during breaks in the performance. There will be no break in the action. The dance floor will stay full until the doors close. Every show will be a damn good dance party.

Expect the unexpected. Expect to be involved. Live performances will start in September 2014 and continue throughout 2015. We want you to be "Criminals" at every Crime Scene. Live shows will be interactive and include you, the fans, because you are the reason that the music exists. You are the reason that this band has come together. We will provide the backdrop that puts you directly in the high drama of the Crime Scene. You will be driving the getaway car. You will be taking risks. You will be dancing the night away with beautiful strangers. You will get away with it.

The Crime Scene is about to begin. Join us. Be a Criminal. It feels good to be bad...

Track Name: Test the Fire
Just say yes. Just say no.
Either way, you’ve gotta let it go
You gotta test the fire
You gotta take me higher

Give way to my persuasion
Open up my cage
Fight for revolution
Free me from my rage

Heart held to the flame
Movin’ to the beat
Baby stake your claim in me
I wanna feel your heat

Raise me from the dead
No need to explain
Livin’ out your truth or dare
Come on feel the pain

You gotta test the fire
You gotta take me higher
I wanna Test the fire
Fire of your desire

Prove it to me darling
Manifest your fate
Nothing left to die for
Time to elevate

Pump your life into me
Baby cool my head
Check my fever round the clock
And take me back to bed

This is where we sacrifice our pain and suffering
Claim this life to hell and back
It’s time to take the leap into the fire

You gotta test the fire (test the fire)
You gotta take me higher (take me higher)
I wanna test the fire (test the fire)
Fire of your desire

You gotta Let it go!
Yeah baby let it go!

Into the fire of your desire!!

Track Name: Cold Stare Hot Touch
Walk away, try to look so tough
Look at me like I'm not enough
I'll bet you boy that we're not through
You'll be back 'cause you fell into

My cold stare, my hot touch
This mad affair is poisonous
Poisonous, you'll see

You say you break hearts, that's your game
A real playboy is your claim to fame
I hate to say it but I'll lay it on the line
Here it is honey, you're doing time

My cold stare, my hot touch
This mad affair is poisonous
Poisonous, you'll see
You’ll see
You’ll see

You're nothin' but a dirty tramp
Your lovin' sent with a dirty stamp
I got your message a little too late
Now here's mine…”There’s no escape!”

All is fair in love & war
Did you forget what you’re fighting for
You swore.
You begged for
You cried for...
My cold stare, my hot touch!
This mad affair is poisonous!
Poisonous, you'll see

My cold stare
I WON'T PRETEND I'M NOT LOOKIN AT YOU
My hot touch
DON'T PRETEND YOU DON'T NEED IT TOO
This mad affair
I'M NOT SAYING I DON'T WANT IT TOO
Is poisonous
I'M WELL AWARE OF WHAT I'M GETTIN' INTO
Poisonous you’ll see

My cold stare, my hot touch
This mad affair is poisonous.
Poisonous.

My cold stare
I WON'T PRETEND I'M NOT LOOKIN AT YOU
My hot touch
DON'T PRETEND YOU DON'T NEED IT TOO
This mad affair
I'M NOT SAYING I DON'T WANT IT TOO
Is poisonous
I'M WELL AWARE OF WHAT I'M GETTIN' INTO
Poisonous you’ll see

My cold stare, my hot touch
This mad affair is poisonous
You’ll see
Track Name: I'm Not the One
I don't sleep at night
Without you next to me
Darling, I just can't walk away
When my mind keeps coming back to you
But you're tellin' me, by the things that you say
That our love could never be true

Why don’t you let me go
If your heart is not for real
Oh, maybe you’re just teasin' me
But you're tearing, tearing out my soul
Listen ‘cause I don't want to be
Your other woman and the last one to know

I’m not the one, that you give your love
I’m not the woman, you’re thinking of
I’m not the one, to carry the blame
I’m not the woman, whose heart you have shamed

I’ll never love again
My heart is shattered
Your arms, I will never embrace
I’m done crying precious tears over you
No more kisses, no more love will you taste
No my time won't be wasted on you

I’m not the one, that you give your love
I’m not the woman, you’re thinking of
I’m not the one, to carry the blame
I’m not the woman, whose heart you have shamed
Track Name: Let's Call it Love
Stole my eye from a distant light
Your swagger said it well
Broken down ride like a fallen angel
By a moon lit motel

Seduced me like the serpent
Your luring melody
I fought to look away from your blue eyed gaze
A star too bright to see

Take a picture of me baby
Give me kisses on the run
The moon is drenched in whiskey
Tell me I'm your only one
Let’s call it love

Are you lonely in your dark mind
Are the curtains drawn too tight
Let me be what I never was
A shred of hope by neon light

Drift away my midnight darling
Sleep until I’m gone
Remember me in the open breeze
I’m warmer than the sun

Take a picture of me baby
Give me kisses on the run
The moon is drenched in whiskey
Tell me I'm your only one
Let’s call it love

Stay asleep.
Your soul I will keep.
Drift in a dream.
Wash over me

Your touch has seared me in the night.
Sleepwalking through my mind.
I wake inside to realize that we've run out of time.

Stow away my lover
Hide yourself from me
A fantasy worn out and gone
Is all you’ll ever be

Take a picture of me baby
Give me kisses on the run
The moon is drenched in whiskey
Tell me I'm your only one Let’s call it love
Track Name: The Other Side
We hold each other
With one last breath
Our souls entwined
Tonight we dine and ride with death

When I first met you like de'ja' vu
An instant taste of a familiar time & place

Another lifetime, could it be?
I know this man, perhaps you took me by the hand

I’m mesmerized by your eyes
Under your spell
Take me to the other side

Inevitable, here we are
Your touch, your kiss
The love consumed, we reminisce

I’m mesmerized by your eyes
Under your spell
Take me to the other side

Fate worth dying for
Death opened up it’s door
Take me forever more
Take me to the other side

Track Name: Locked Inside
Locked inside my tiny bottle
Of cheap perfume and sudden romance
Endless is the night that goes on inside
Masquerade of lights and shiny baubles

But you have given me my eyes
And you have shown me we were destined for sin
And this can't be good but it's alright

Stay away go find another
But for you, my love
You're too much trouble but it could be great
Satisfy my love, break down my cover

But you have given me my eyes
And you have shown me we were destined for sin
And this can't be good but it's alright

A thousand nights I have walked this floor
Rescue came from what could have been
I want you now, I want to regret your love
A cognac and a line is what I'm hoping for

But you have given me my eyes
And you have shown me we were destined for sin
And this can't be good but it's alright
Track Name: Ride or Die
This isn’t a mirage on the sunset highway
Getaway gold when you do it my way
Bittersweet trust, it’ll never come easy
Million dollar love
Do you still want me

I got the five speed fever
Heading straight outta town
Sirens on my back
Ain't never gonna slow down

Blinded by high stakes
Speed in my veins
100 Hundred dollar bills
Comin' down like rain

Crank up
Aim high
Your Jonny B Good is tattoo’d on my thigh

Hell bent -
Snake eyes
Tell me lies, lies, lies, lies, lies!

Ride all night
Ride or Die

Call me your Belladonna baby in the shade of the night
I'll get you hopped up, freaked out, ready to fight

Twenty five to life you better answer to me
Keep your cool honey
I’m your back street bookie

Pay up
Get down
Gimme all your money, keep your head to the ground

Payload
Blow a hole in your mind, mind, mind, mind, mind

Ride all Night
Ride or Die
Ride all Night
Ride or Die

This isn’t a mirage on the sunset highway
Getaway gold when you do it my way
Bittersweet trust, it will never comes easy
Million dollar love
Do you still want me?

Ride all Night
Ride or Die
Ride all Night
Ride or Die

Swim in the mirage on the ocean sky way
We got away gold 'cuz we did it my way
Bittersweet trust. It all comes easy
Million dollar love
It's you and me baby
Track Name: Save My Soul
Oh mama
Your child is gone
No more bended knee
No more savin’ me

Mama stop your praying
This could be the day
He’s comin’ home
Run away
Run away

Who ya dying for
Daddy or the Lord
An unholy war
But, what’s it for
What’s it for
Oh, I can’t take no more
Oh, I can’t take no more

Ain't no love can fill my heart
Ain't no hate can tear me apart
Ain't no prayer can make me whole
Ain't no one can save my soul


Mama don’t you cry
Look me in the eye
Never look behind
He’s gonna die
Gonna die

Time to make it right in the dark of night
Mama get your crown
Now shoot him down
Shoot him down
Oh you gotta lay him down
Oh you gotta lay him down

Ain't no love can fill my heart
Ain't no hate can tear me apart
Ain't no prayer can make me whole
Ain't no one can save my soul

All my tears won’t wash my shame
All my drink won’t ease my pain
Standing on his grave with the sky ablaze
Time to rest my head ‘cause the Devil’s dead

Ain't no love can fill my heart
Ain't no hate can tear me apart
Ain't no prayer can make me whole
Ain't no one can save my soul

Ain't no love can fill my heart
Ain't no hate can tear me apart
Ain't no prayer can make me whole
Ain't no one can save my soul
Track Name: Liar Cheater Dead
You’re a liar
Talking all your jive
You’re a liar
Givin' me that line
You’re a fabricatin’, falcifian, bull shittin’, son of a gun

You’re a cheater
Dealin’ half your love
You’re a cheater
Say I’m your only one
You’re a double talkin, mascaradin’, two-timin’, son of a gun

I swore that you were listening
Waiving my pistol as the blood drained from your face
But now you’re pleading,
While your gunshots bleedin’
And the smoke is rising from your grave

You’re a dead man
You’re no good to me
You’re a dead man honey
I’m gonna set you free
You’re a liquidated, soon departed, done for it, son of a gun

I swore that you were listening
Waiving my pistol as the blood drained from your face
But now you’re pleading,
While your gunshots bleedin’
And the smoke is rising from your grave

You're a liar
Your mama said that ain't right
You're a cheater
Ain't gonna see the daylight
You're a liar
You're a cheater
And now you're dead
Track Name: Intoxicating Madness
Hang me out on the line again
Tossed about, blowing in the wind
All strung out, drownin' in my gin
Ohhhhh!
Hang me out. I’m blowing in the wind.
No doubt about, you’re gonna do me in

Intoxicating Madness here it comes again

Turn me round, I'm getting dizzy on
This love go round, a surge of spinnin' sin
Stir me up, I want to drink you in
Ohhhhh
A lustful force, you're loves a whirling wind
Without remorse, held captivated in

Intoxicating Madness here it comes again

Wait for you to send me to another day of sadness
Another night into the plight of intoxicating madness

Hang me out, I’m blowin’ in the wind
No doubt about, you're gonna do me in

Intoxicating Madness here it comes
Intoxicating Madness here it comes
Intoxicating Madness here it comes again
Track Name: Motor Vixen From Hell
She was just 17
A crazy little Queen
Her momma never got no rest

Up in the Hollywood hills
Getting her thrills
The camera was obsessed

She had a dirty little trick
With a slipppery lick
Always brought 'em to their knees

High heels in the air
Jailbait without a care
Come on Daddy, give me the keys

Shakin' her little tail
Leads 'em on a trail
A highway funeral
The Motor Vixen From Hell

Daddy’s little girl becomes the queen of her world
Stealing every soul she beds
Stacking the cash with a smack on the ass
Promising they’ll soon be wed

It’s just a matter of time and a little white line
Pretty soon he’ll be coughin’ up lead
Shove him in the trunk, the old dirty drunk
You picked the wrong girl, she said.

Shakin' her little tail
Leads 'em on a trail
A highway funeral
The Motor Vixen from Hell

Now this is a sad tale to tell
Some say, from the sky she fell
She was known from the heavens as Lucifer’s Belle

Came crashin’ to the earth...

The Motor Vixen from Hell
The Motor Vixen from Hell
The Motor Vixen from Hell, from Hell, from Hell from Hell, from Hell, from Hell
She's the Motor Vixen from Hell
