There’s a lot of amazing stuff coming out of Pussy Riot’s invasion of New York — it’s hard to know where to begin. They regret nothing and had to leave to get working on more protests in this NPR interview. They were giggly and charming with Stephen Colbert. They looked glamorous and intransigent in their crucifix smocks at the Amnesty International concert. And Masha and Nadya were just fucking right on in this New York Times interview. Meanwhile they’ve stoked the boards of protest at the Olympics already. This homage of Bob Costas saying their name, saying their name, over and over went viral.
Larry Mantle will interview me about Queens of Noise: The Real Story of the Runaways live for “Air Talk” on KPCC (Los Angeles NPR, 89.3 FM) tomorrow, August 8, at 12:40 p.m. You can stream it here.
