" refrigeration keeps you young i'm told"

over 50 and she's still about a million times hotter than scary skank whore madonna/skeletor. siouxsie does nancy sinatra. if you recall it was also the last song played at mangay. and she's actually fucking singing- imagine that....

while we're at it: siouxsie phrases, admittedly, like this guy- billy mckenzie of the associates. pretty much the archetype of the male 80s voice. he committed suicide in in 1997. the cure song 'cut here' is about his death.

which reminds me that i've been listening to ABC's ultimate album of the 80s-the Lexicon of Love a lot lately:
" i know democracy but i know what's fascist". they were originally an early industrial band called vice versa and home boys of cabaret voltaire.

lemon rind and green eyes

boston rock girls who hate me. i worked with judy grunewald after salem 66 broke up and she absolutely hated me.i was never sure why- because i barely interacted with her. perhaps she thought i was a demented club kid who smelt of special k, poppers and the sticky gross floor of the dj booth at sporters. ok, that may have been sort of true but it meant that she was so off putting i never got to tell her how much i loved her music. long before the rrriot grrrrrlies twirlies and the pacific northwest as having any musical interest there was salem 66 and judy judy judy.

green is a great goth song. fly my bats, fly! throwing muses at the rocket in da day:

i lived across the street from thalia zedek for years. my friend berlin was madly in love with her. thalia was infamous for saying, after the end of the all girls dangerous birds, that she didn't like playing music with women because they didn't play hard enough. internalized misogyny is the drug of a nation.

dangerous birds( with laurie green. whatever the hell happened to laurie green who was all over the boston scene at a certain point? she did a great cover of a ' town without pity' with lou miami.)- smile on your face

here she is being not so very hard. but we're all older now, aren't we though? this song was originally by allston diy band V; ,the lead singer of which, susan anway, went on to sing on the early magnetic fields albums. i always liked susan's voice. V;'s entire out put is available on itunes. i think it's worth having.( V;, "you're a weapon"). thalia covers "1926":
