On Monday, Kathleen Hanna (of Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin) had a radio interview on “Q with Jian Ghomeshi,” where she spoke about the importance of public mistakes, the resurgence of the ‘90s, and why she is still pissed off twenty years later (“Does anybody remember that the Equal Rights Amendment never passed?”). In the wake of the reissue of Bikini Kill’s entire catalog, Hanna speaks a lot about the band’s ... Read More
Shannon Shaw is the lead singer of amazing punk-pop-garage group Shannon and the Clams. This band has created a sound so original and I’ve been in love ever since I first laid ears on “Troublemaker.” Shannon’s wailing voice is remniscent of ‘60s girl groups The Shangri-Las and The Ronettes but with her own rougher spin on that sound. Guitarist Cody Blanchard is the other singer/songwriter of The Clams, and together the two produce ... Read More
Guitarist, songwriter, and singer Kate Eldridge is probably one of the hardest working musicians in the punk scene right now. Big Eyes started in Brooklyn, NY (although they’ve relocated to Seattle, WA), and has been releasing LPs, EPs, split 7 inches, and touring left and right since 2009. Kate shreds on guitar and writes some catchy-ass lyrics (see “Back From the Moon”). Big Eyes is like rock ’n’ roll but a little heavier. ... Read More
Desert Sharks are a four-piece surf (who woulda guessed?) punk band from Brooklyn. They’ve got a brand spankin’ new EP that hits the Internet shelves today via their Bandcamp. “Sister Cousins,” recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio, is an EP that keeps it short and not-so-sweet, but in a good way. They stay snarky with lines like “I’m gonna burn this neighborhood right to the ground/ So I never have to worry about ... Read More
More great news on the Bikini Kill front, everyone!  Front lady Kathleen Hanna is reviving her project The Julie Ruin—and I am too stoked. Almost as stoked as I was when Bikini Kill told BUST about the launch of their very own record label, Bikini Kill Records, in the December/January issue.It’s been over 14 years since the release of Julie Ruin’s only album in 1998 after the Bikini Kill break up. But then in 2010, Hanna and Bikini ... Read More
  It's finally the end of a really scary election year; one in which men tried to take away our rights and take control of our bodies.  To celebrate the protection of our rights, let's check out this wild music video that flips the issue of reproductive rights on its head. Shilpa Ray, of the really awesome Brooklyn blues-punk band Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers, commented on the red hot issue of reproductive rights in her new music video for the song ... Read More
  Screaming Females’ front lady Marissa Paternoster comes back from the dead (uh, literally) as a cat flesh eating zombie out for revenge in the Jersey-based punk band’s weird new music video for “Leave It All Up To Me.”  The video, which premiered on RollingStone.com, is meant to be a continuation of the playfully gory story started in the previous video for “It All Means Nothing,” where the two boys of the band kill ...

  The verdict is in for Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot, and it's not good. The three members were found guilty on charges of hooliganism in a trial held on Friday. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich were sentenced to two years each in prison, due to their participation in a guerrilla protest/performance in Moscow’s main cathedral back in March. That day, the women sang a “punk prayer” in which they ... Read More
When I think of punk music, my mind’s eye is flooded with images of white males jumping around with spikes on their belts, heavy boots, and an anarchist patches safety pinned onto their jeans. But recently, black women have become a presence on the punk scene as well, and they are owning it just as much as any testosterone filled mosher.    Local band TheDeathSet has taken notice of this, and made a mini documentary about the new development. The ... Read More
I f*cking love Vivienne Westwood. The brilliant designer baits the press with gems like, "People have never looked so ugly as they do today regarding their dress." In addition to being the mother of punk, she's an outspoken activist to end global warming and consumption. So I was all types of glitter happy to see that Ecouterre, the eco-fashion website, compiled images of her  with some of her delightfully brilliant musings such as:  I never look at ... Read More
