things that have been on my mind

Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre songs about young love, vintage dinosaur suits, courtney love and seductive rose mcgowan.
David Bowie's recording of heroes.. it's been a slow month.

Women of Punk

Recently, I've been reading a lot about the beginnings of the punk movement of the late 70's. Especially the female influence on punk rock history. I completely admire their style and courage to immerse themselves in a predominantly male-dominated genre. Bands like Souxsie and the Banshees and The Slits, definitely paved the way for women's rock and freedom of expression.
I have recently been inspired by icons like, Ari UP, Patti Smith, Souxsie sioux, Suzi Quatro and Poly Styrene

We're not going to explain ourselves any more, we're just going to do what we want and if noone understands that's their problem' - Souxsie of Souxsie and the Banshees

Janeane Garofalo

I have so much respect for this woman, she voices her opinions in such a way that really makes people pay attention to her. I completely agree with her opinions on the government and the music corporations that hasn't much changed since the 90s.
