1979 with Zillah Minx
Zillah Minx is the singer of the first-wave UK punk band Rubella Ballet and the director of a documentary called “She’s a Punk Rocker UK.” If that sounds familiar, it’s not a coincidence. Sharing a similar name can put you in touch with some very cool people.
Zillah is so old-school, she was a punk before punk really even had a name. We talk about growing up in London in the ‘70s, hearing the term “punk rocker” on TV for the first time, being best friends with Poly Styrene of the X-Ray Spex, and much, much more. If any of you out there are history nerds, Zillah is what you’d call a ‘primary source,’ and she is an absolute wealth of knowledge, experience and perspective on one of the most consequential cultural shifts of the 20th century.
