Siberian Nights

The Kills’ frontwoman Alison Mosshart is singlehandedly keeping the mystique of the rock chick alive. For which I salute her. I need the inspiration of attitude, and rock chick attitude is in short supply. There will always be rock chicks on fashion runways, it seems, because it’s an easy sell. Who doesn’t want to look like they slept in their eyeliner? But there’s never enough rock chicks actually rocking. You gotta actually walk in those Doc Marten boots, you gotta actually sleep with your makeup on and cut your hair with sewing scissors, and crash through life sincerely not giving a fuck, and make music about it. Live the life, girls, live the life.
