At first I was slightly put off by the raw punk elements of Weird Sister, but was seriously drawn to the third track on the album, Wussy Void. This would have fit in perfectly on the classic My Bloody Valentine album 'Loveless'; the Irish shoegazers are an influence on Joanna Gruesome and it rings out loud and clear on the album, especially on this track.

Her fanbase is only small at the moment but hopefully before long she starts getting the recognition she deserves.

For starters, go straight to History Eraser for your instant fix and then go to Lance Jr. for those "eye-opening lyrics"...
