I am excited to announce that I have recently started writing for, Boxx Music Magazine, which is a new magazine all about women in music,  and that they have published two of my interviews!

The first one is with the legendary, Pat Place, of the late ’70s/early ’80s NYC band, the Bush Tetras. They are best known for No Wave  anthems such as “Too Many Creeps” and “Can’t Be Funky,” which combine their Punk and Funk influences in a raw and experimental way, and have garnered the band quite a following that has only continued to grow since they broke up in 1983. They reunited in the ’90s and reunited again in 2012, and I talk with Place about the Bush Tetras career both then and now. The interview can be viewed here:  http://boxxmagazine.com/2012/12/on-the-line-with-bush-tetras/

The other interview is with Helen Reddington (aka Helen McCookerybook), who played bass for ’70s British Punk bands such as Joby and the Hooligans and Chefs, and her experiences as a female musician in that scene inspired her to write a book all about the women musicians of  late ’70s/early ’80s British Punk.  She interviewed bands such as: The AuPairs, The Mo-dettes, The Raincoats, The Slits, The Delta 5 and more.  To read my interview with Reddington about her music career and her book, The Lost Women of Rock Music: Musicians of the Punk Era,  go here: http://boxxmagazine.com/2013/01/interview-author-helen-reddington-talks-about-the-lost-women-of-the-punk-era/
