Exene Cervenka

http://www.metroactive.com/papers/so...gift-0139.html

"X marks the spot: Exene Cervenka's poetic lyrics and off-key vocals helped propel X into rock history."

Exene was always a woman with great punk style - ask Anna Sui.




exene had a huge influence on more than one future rocker's personal style - vintage dresses, chunky streaked hair, dramatic make-up. remember, this was the eighties, when you actually went to thrift stores and picked through the rags to find vintage clothing - it wasn't being put on the runways, and if you paid two dollars you paid too much.

i remember going to see X in santa barbara wearing a thrift store catholic schoolgirl uniform.

i love her style, personally, and didn't realize until just now how much of an influence it had on me. and i believe if you look at anna sui's work you'll see a resemblance.

i think she's teaching right now, in addition to doing music.

here is an excerpt from an article about X.

Punk 101
One band's 'Wild Gift' to rock and roll

By Greg Cahill

X WASN'T the first punk band to make the scene in Los Angeles, Rolling Stone once reasoned, but it definitely was the first one that mattered. At a time when most L.A. punk bands merely aped the sound of their London and New York counterparts, X invented a unique metal-edged, high-octane rockabilly-based sound that stood head and shoulders above the pack, thanks to deep roots in the storytelling tradition of Woody Guthrie.

Music writer J. D. Considine once opined that the band's strong suit was that its early songs were "so obviously and audaciously intelligent, with verses that read more like poetry than punk doggerel."

Over the years, and especially in the solo works of singer/songwriter Exene Cervenka and ex-hubbie John Doe, the band members have continued to produce intelligent underground rock, reuniting for occasional concert tours.

New reissues show that X remains the only L.A. punk band that matters, pioneers of an edgy brand of Americana music rich in country-inflected harmonies and guitars, unafraid to explore the nation's seamy underbelly, and inviting comparisons to film noir and the work of Bowery bum-cum-Beat poet Charles Bukowski.

Now, 20 years after the release of X's 1980 debut, Los Angeles (Slash), the band is once again being acknowledged for its influence with the release of expanded and digitally remastered versions of its first three albums on the Rhino label....
