Gerry Jenn - Pt 2
By Ginger Coyote
What are your thoughts on Amy Winehouse?
G.J.W.: Amy Winehouse Is A Brilliant
Artist/Gorgeous & Gifted Woman!!! I was happy that she got "The
Grammy" nomination. ... (Although she could afford to get some
meat on her bones!!) MEOW!!!!..( I Can't Help But Adore & love her
Skinny Soul Singing Scandolous Arse!!)...Ha! Ha!!!
Plus The Limey Diva Knows how to keep her "Beehive Intact" (Even
If the Paparazzi catch her after a 3-Day Bender In Brixton,
UK)!!!!...I have her "LIVE At Shepard's Bush Empire" On DVD In
London '07!!..My fave songs are 'YOU KNOW I'M KNOW GOOD", REHAB, &
"BACK TO BLACK!!!"....My Fave Amy Winehouse Lyric which I repeat
like I have "Turret's Syndrome" is "WHAT KIND OF FUCKERY IS
THIS?"....(from her song "Me & Mr. Jones~~!"....an hour doesn't go
by in the day when I'm not wailing "FUCKERY!!!" this "FUCKERY
that!!!"...& for this SISTER AMY WINEHOUSE" I
Winehouse was a JawBreaker The Ingredients (Minus The Drug Tests)
would consist of the following flavors:::"Edie , Nico, Whitney,
Britney, Billie Holiday, Diana Ross, & Big Mama Thorton!!"....."VIVA
LA AMY WINEHOUSE FUCKERY!!!"...X!....
Punk Globe: Speaking of rad strong Women- I love The Cobalt do
you play there
alot.. Wendy Thirteen is so fucking cool! What other venues do you
like to play at
G.J..W.: Funny that you would mention "The
Cobalt Hotel!!"....Wendy 13, (Vancouver's Punk Rock Promoter
ExtraOrdinare!)... is not only my Punk Soul Sister #1, but her & I
are neighbors here in East VanCougrr!!!..We both have a fetish for
painting like "Jackson Pollock", "Mary-Jane" Green is the color of
our fave Crayola, & I was the First & Last Waitress to ever sling
beer @ The Cobalt (When the bar transformed from a strip-bar to
punk bands!!)...I did'nt make enough tips to stay on as staff, So
I did a B-MOVIE MONDAY for awhile there ... Showing My Fave "Russ
Myers, John Carpenter, John Waters, Stanley Kubrick, etc..
Films..(That Lasted for About 3 Months!) ..Punk
Rock Legend/ Singer CHI-PIG (The Singer for SNFU works there now
as a bus-boy/Portrait Artist/M.C. On Special Nights!!!)...I'll be
doing a Solo performance Sat., Dec. 15th @ The Cobalt with Ani Kyd,
Mr. Plow, I, BrainEater, Dirty Swagger, & Micheal Kyd...Pub 340,
The Anza Club, The Plaza, Pat's Pub, The Picadilly, & The
Commodore are also decent venues here in Vancouver!
Punk Globe: I wish you would move to California .. I would be in a
band with you in a New York
minute.... Maybe I should move to BC.... But don't think I could
take the cold weather..
G.J.W.: There isn't much of a "Music
Industry" here in Vancouver at all Dahlink, so let me meet you in
S.F!!!...Your Either Bryan Adams or doing what every clever Indie
band does here...*( & that is ...RECORD & TOUR! TOUR!

The Snowboarder's...but aside from that, I'm "California
Punk Globe: Tell the readers about your best show you have ever
G.J.W.: JP5 have played some wild shows @
The Penthouse (Vancouver's Oldest Strip Bar,
where Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. & The Rest Of The Rat Pack
Use To Perform & Hussle Dames!)...for the NXNW Music Festival...We
Had a "Best ManBreast's In The West" Wet T-Shirt Contest, where
Stephen Hamm from Canned Hamm took the prize!! JP5 have played
some memorable shows with DOA (on tour to The SXSW), Nashville
Pussy, Agent Orange (In Fort Collins, Colorado), The Headstones,
The Humpers, Nine Pound Hammer, etc..& of course one of my fave
shows of alltime was when The Muscle Bitches Played The NightBreak
In S.F. With "The White Trash Debutantes!!!" back in the Nasty
Punk Globe: And how about your worst show?
G.J.W.: JP5 played The Lamplighter Pub,
Indie Car Racing Week-End In Vancouver '03...The Bar Was packed
Over Capacity..During our last song I was doing a guitar solo on a
table next to a huge window (8ft. X 8ft.)...I got pushed into the
window & went right through it surrounded by broken glass (that
could have decapitated me!) onto the street!!...Luckily the bar
was on the main floor!!...I got rushed to St. Paul's Hospital
where the Doc. put 12 blue stitches on my right buttcheek (to
match my blue hair-do at the time!!!)...(.The Carpet has to match

Punk Globe: You
have also taken a turn into acting.. Tell us what you have done
G.J.W. : I was in a "Fringe Festival"
Garage Rock Musical "Phat Tank" were I played the lead role of
"The Silencer", (A Whip Weilding, Singing Domanatrix!!),....I got
my start in film doing music videos for Tank-Hog, Junkhouse, Joe
Six Pack, The Real McKenzies,JP5,etc... which ended up getting me
a bit part in "Bruce McDonald's" HARDCORE LOGO" where I played the
glamorous role of a groupie from Regina, Saskatchewan!!..I was a
drug dealers girlfriend in "Neck Of Lace" Directed by The Talented
Vancouver Pop Artist I, BRAINEATER..!!
Punk Globe: Will we see any Oscar, Golden Globe nominations like
we have with Ms. Courtney Love?
G.J.W.: Now that I finally have an Agent,
The Lovely Ms. Coco Moon (Double Agents), I've been getting some
tasty paying gigs (which is always nice!). THE L-WORD was alot of
fun!!..I got to do a scene with Pam Greir aka "Foxy Brown"...where
she serves me a "Movie Latte" @ The "SHE BAR", & hang with Cybil
Sheppard & the lovely ladies!!!...I had to dance to Roxy Music's
"Do The Strand" about 20 X!!!...I have never seen so many gorgeous
"Lipstick Lesbians" In a real Gay Bar..but I
was'nt bitching!!!...As far as Oscar, & Golden Globe nominations
go, we'll have to see how lucky I am, or who I meet along the
way!!!...Your picture of Courtney Love wearing a "WHITE TRASH
DEB'S" T-Shirt Is Priceless by the way!!!...X!
Punk Globe: You seem to have no limitations.. Is there anything
you have not tried that you want to venture into?
G.J.W.: It seems a crime not to write a
"Tell All Autobiography" Eventually!!! I've been too busy living
life to find the time, but where there is a will there is a
way!!...Joe Shithead from DOA just put out his book..(I, SHITHEAD)...&
Billy Hopeless from the Black Halos is working on his Bio. as
well!!!....So Be On The look-out for Ms. Gerry-Jenn Wilson's "TRUE
CONFESSION'S OF A R&R TRASHMAVEN/BEER DRINKING MANEATER!!!"...(You
Can read about Gerry-Jenn getting into PORN in Chris Walter's
Short Story "LIES" from his latest masterpiece "Tales From The
Gutter" (On GFY Press)...this is fiction however!!! Ha! Ha!)...
Perhaps you & I can start a R&R Clothing Line/Accesories
together!!!...It seems to be working for Ms. Gwen, The Beastie
Boys, & Kim Gordon Of Sonic Youth!!! (etc)...& if Britney & J-Lo
can have thier own Mainstream Fragrance...I say It's Time for
"Ginger & G.J" to get our own special scent for the modern "TRASHMAVEN"
& "WHITETRASH DEBUTANTE!!"...The Smell of FEMME FATALE R&R in a
Martini/Pitchfork Shaped Bottle!!!....X! X! X!
Punk Globe: You have met so many "Stars" tell us some of your
G.J.W.: Stompin' Tom Conners is a Country
Canadian Legend & a sweetheart! K.D. Lang convinced him to come
out of retirement after he wrote his autobiography "Before The
Fame". During an intermission at his concert in Richmond B.C., I
approached a rather handsome man at the bar & said "Has anyone
ever told you that you look just like a 20 yr. Old version of "Stompin
Tom?!?"....Much to my surprise Mr. Cutie's reply was, "Why yes
they have darling, I'm Tom Conners Jr., & I'm My Dad's Tour
Manager!!!..." I got to meet Stompin' Tom after the show & we
drank our share of his fave. beer "MooseHead!"....& Tom Jr. & I
are still pals!!... Iggy is as cool as f*ck!!!... He Pulled me up
onstage at The Commodore & we sang "The Passenger" together...If I
did'nt have pictures I still would think I was dreaming!! My
girlfriends from "Lik The Pole" took up most of his time backstage
however, but I got to become good friends with his guitarist "The
Mighty Whitey" who lives in Calgary, Alberta!!...The last time JP5
toured through "CowTown", Whitey came to the gig & gave me a ride
in his new Porche!!!...(Must Be Nice!).... David Duchcovny from
The X-Files asked me out on a date at The Vancouver Aquarium...I
did'nt know it was him until all of the Extras on the set asked me
what we were talking about...In hindsight, I should of said "Hell
Yeah!!"....I've been told he's quite the pervert!!! When I was
working with Legendary Engineer/Producer "Dave The Rave Oglivie"
(Marilyn Manson, Skinny Puppy, Genitorturers, Orgy, etc..) on
recording a demo-deal
for Sony US with my ex. band "BLACK EYE BUDDHA", he was also
working with Rob Halford from JUDAS PRIEST'S new band "Two"...we
went to see them play here in Van., & after the show Dave took me
to meet him on his tour bus...Need-less-to-say I was impressed to
meet "Mr. Hellbent for Leather",( who could very well be a W.W.F.
Wrestler if he gets tired of playing R&R!!!)...He's Big, Bald, &
Leatherclad...& since I was the only Grrlie on the tour bus, I
was'nt surprised to find out that he's gay!!...He's got good taste
in fella's, I might add!...
