That was awesome and the 2012 interview with Venus great.

I don’t want to spoil the Q & A but I found it amusing that she rebelled and ended up going to Calvary Bible College.

I wonder how she feels about Scott Baio these days, now that he’s proven himself a supreme dickhead?

In other Underage New Wave Lead Singer news fresh from 1980, Anabella Lwin was just 13 years old when she was hired by Malcom McClaren to sing with Bow Wow Wow.

Generally not a great idea when bandmates fuck, unless they’re producing new bandmates i guess

I always liked BWW’s drummer. and everything else, too. was fun to find out that their hit “I Want Candy” was a cover when I finally got around to sessioning the Nuggets comps.

“Scott Baio” was great! hearing a big Young Marble Giants influence, I think.

ApoCowLypso were an eighties punk folk band with a 70ish music professor who’d been a Schoenberg protege singing. Most Richmonders in those days mistook her for a bag lady; few forgot the theatrical live shows.

I had their single Pajama Party years ago, but lost it. Great song.
