One Question Interviews: Pandemix

Shannon (Pandemix)

SPB: Who is your favorite lyricist?

Shannon: Vi Subversa of Poison Girls. The way that she weaves the personal into the political until they are indistinguishable from each other is somehow subtle and biting all at once. Her lyrics were usually playful without ever making you question her seriousness. I think a lot of the imagery she uses is meant to draw the listener in and invite comparisons to their own lives, as opposed to making a didactic proclamation. If you're writing about alienation, gender roles, love and sex, etc. in a punk band without being familiar with her work, you're doing yourself an insane disservice. One of the greats.
