Fowley on Queens

I’m heading out to interview Kim Fowley and Snow Mercy, his latest protege, and I’m getting ready for the usual mix of outrage, vulgarity, and intelligence. Here’s something Kim told me last year, about the Runaways album Queens of Noise:

“I wanted vaginal teeth in the second album. I wanted guns in their hands. I wanted them to blow up the world and piss on rainbows and set up fire and stuff, and I wasn’t interested in doing a layered record for a bunch of assholes who are gonna still dislike them and still doubt them.”

    Snow Mercy is the ONLY FEMALE ARTIST HAVE WORKED WITH WHO INVENTED HERSELF!.
    Yes, Doris Day & Helen Reddy had identities, but they also had manager husbands who helped shape these identities. Various Runaways had to pass through the Growing Up Process to finalize their identities & various members of Black Room Doom had multiple identities.
    Evelyn McDonnell has 1 identity = Rock n’ Roll Story Teller. Evelyn’s Runaways book will hopefully be the first & last book on the subject. All the Urban Myths will be told yet again, but maybe this time the motivations will be examined, of why they were The Queens Of Noise.
