Exene Cervenka

Exene Cervenka along with Cindy Wasserman played songs from her new cd in Brooklyn in the fall of 2009. While Williamsburg hipsters were in their diapers Exene was charting a course in music back in the late 70’s that hadn’t been seen before. What had been labeled punk really was an amalgamam of country, rockabilly, pop, and poetry delivered over Marshall stacks and a driving beat. They called it punk but that was really a simplification used to sell it to wayward teenagers back in the day. What the music really delivered was an emotional honesty that gave disaffected people identity and hope. The new selections that Exene has penned for us is no exception.
