Description

"Now do you hear that sound, as the model breaks,
Take the stage and let the image of him fade away." - Sleater-Kinney


TW: This episode includes discussions of sexual assault. Listener discretion is advised.

In today's episode, Izzy is joined by Ashley Kossakowski, the brains behind Brooklyn-based riot grrrl act Groupie. Topics of discussion include finding her bandmates on Craigslist, standing up to sexual harassment at work, bygone rock and roll heroes, culling song lyrics from Patti Smith poems, and much more! 

✨ MORE ABOUT GROUPIE ✨

Blending the rebel-rousing ethos of Riot Grrrl lyrics with the dissonant tones of post-punk and new wave instrumentation, Groupie is a Brooklyn four-piece helmed by the frenetically passionate Ashley Kossakowski (vocals, bass) and Johanna Healy (vocals, guitar), who were first brought together by an unassuming Craigslist ad.  After harnessing their sound over two EPs, Groupie released their debut album 'Ephemeral,' in 2021, with ten tracks casting a critiquing eye on society and the self, musing on fleeting intimacy, isolation, and displacement inherent in city life.
