Hi! It’s finally here: my first book review, debut for Cleveland Review of Books, my greatest work so far, and the greatest culmination of what I gathered from my near-decade of living in Chicago. If you love reading this review, you’ll love Hole Studies. Period. I’ve never bought so many copies of a book for others in my life.
If articles could have dedications, this one would be dedicated to Anne Frances Wysocki.
Born at Fairview General Hospital in the Year of the Reformation of Pere Ubu, when Jane Scott still ruled the Land. Born of the cybertronic union of Planet E and Channel Z, "getting nothing but static" and techno liberation thru space. I try to imbue music journalism with meaning beyond moving units and I am working on a book about the development and enormous influence of punk and art rock in Northeast Ohio. Hard Femme, more than a bit of an iconoclast. she/her/Miss Sir.
