Amanda has me thinking of Klaus Nomi and other late 70s/early 80s weirdness. She's posted a video of "Total Eclipse," but to be fair I think this is much weirder.
Fini Finito in comments mentions this Nina Hagen performance of Ziggy Stardust...which I have to say is awesome(ly strange).
Which, combined with this post on women "rockers," got me thinking some more about women in music who managed to be female and not total sex-objects. Which of course leads me to the X-Ray Spex.
In the post about women rockers when Amanda wonders if a woman could get away with pulling a man on stage during a performance several people suggest Joan Jett as an option.
I think she manages to pull off sexy without being a sex object.
But I'll have to say the ultimate badass women rockers for me will always be Bikini Kill.
Although now that I'm breastfeeding I do have a little bit of a different response to the phrase "Suck my Left One."
