Patty Schemel, Hole:
Google “hot lesbian drummer” and she takes up six pages or so; add the word “mess” in there and it’s even more, especially after last year’s doc Hit So Hard
came out. Hannah Blilie, Gossip:
Beth Ditto may get the press, but butchy Blilie — whose face graced the cover of Music for Men
— gets a lot of the lesbian adoration. Fact: She has a twin brother, Jordan, who is the lead singer for Past Lives.
Sandra Alva, Modern Day Escape:
Allison Miller, Boom Tic Boom: When Miller’s sophomore studio album, No Morphine, No Lilies, comes out April 16, it’ll be more proof that Miller isn’t just a great drummer, but one of the more impressive jazz artists of our time.
The perfectly coiffed and punky drummer is back in the studio in Florida with band mates for their third album, out this summer.
Andrea Silver, Young Galaxy:
Kelly Harris, Little Victory: This Brooklyn queer punk band broke up in February, so fans have to console themselves with Little Victory’s self-titled 2012 EP, but we have no doubt sexy speedster Harris will be back soon.
“Superfoods.” That’s what Young Galaxy’s lesbian drummer, Andrea Silver, says when asked why there are so many hot lesbian drummers. (Read a profile
on the band from the latest magazine.)
