Lynn Breedlove, chief singer and songwriter for infamous dyke-punk band Tribe 8, has been performing throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe for over a decade. She currently teaches at the Harvey Milk Institute in San Francisco,where she lives. Her first novel, Godspeed, is not your average drug redemption story, but it’s obviously based on her own experiences as an addict in past years, and that’s what makes it so compelling and real.
Entartete Künst (German for 'degenerate art') is an anarcho-electro/hip-hoppers put out political electronic music that fuses low- and high-brow culture (think dark, slow hip-hop with Noam Chomsky samples) into a potent mix that challenges the status quo.
