Yesterday I met the sassiest boy in America, also known as Ian Svenonius of Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up and currently Chain and The Gang. I warmly recommed the satirical essays in The Psychic Soviet (2006) and Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group (2013) that I wrote about in Vagant #2/2013. Amongst other things Mister Svenonius and his band were allies to the Riot Grrrl movement and toured with Bikini Kill, Bratmobile and Slant 6. Here's an early 90s flyer. If you happen to have Maximumrocknroll #105 or know where to get it, please report to the main office. Further reading here.
