Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alice Cohen (former stage name "Alice Desoto") is a New York City based American singer, songwriter and fine artist. Cohen is best known for her years as the primary songwriter and lead singer of The Vels, the Philadelphia band she co-created in the early 1980s. They were signed in 1984 to the Mercury label under which they released two albums. They had one minor hit ("Look My Way") and a successful MTV music video. The Vels toured the U.S. in 1986, opening for The Psychedelic Furs. In 1980, Alice Cohen wrote Karen Young's Atlantic Records disco track "Deetour," recently re-released on Horse Meat Disco. After The Vels dissolved in 1987, Cohen's work changed direction and she became active in the indie/underground and touring scene. Cohen's best-known venture in this area is the band "Die Monster Die." A pair of "DMD" albums were released on the Roadrunner Records and Dutch East labels ("Withdrawal Method" and "Chrome Molly").show more
