THE PUNK SINGER


This weekend I watched this documentary about Kathleen Hanna, hero and musician from Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin.  A mix of archive footage and new interviews, it features loads of amazing people, including Tavi Gevinson, Kim Gordon, Adam Horowitz and Carrie Brownstein all talking about Hanna, the Riot Grrrl movement, and her influences on music, culture and feminism.  Guys, she coined the phrase, "Smells like teen spirit".  It's beautiful and funny and moving.  It actually came out last October but for some reason I've missed it till now, get hold of it and watch it, it's fantastic.
