FEROCIOUS PIECE OF WRITING FROM JAYNE COUNTY

Valerie Solanos style piece of passionate invective from Jayne County. Little did I think back in the late 70’s in Pandoras in Swansea that Jayne would be the punk who kept to the passion and the politics longest. Great piece.

‘This creepy infatuation and obsession over silly words that may or may not be used in an offensive manner has got to stop. It is dividing us at a time when we need to stick together more than ever. I am old. I’ve been around the block more times than a hooker on bad speed. I have seen them come and go and rise and fall. I was there for all three days of the Stonewall riots. I’ve marched in more marches than a Marine band. I’ve marched for African-Americans, and women’s lib. I marched to end the war in Vietnam, and fought for animal rights.’

    Back in the late 70’s in Swansea i had a choice to either see Wayne County at Circles (Dora’s) or The Pirates at Nutz Club. I chose The Pirates, i really wanted to see Wayne County but The Pirates were brilliant!
