was the singer of the legendary NYC punk band the LUNACHICKS.
After 6 albums the band splitted on good terms and now THEO
has her new band with new powerful music “bolstered with
flavours of new wave, metal and catchy pop” (www.ilovetheo.com).
She also has a modelling and an acting carreer which has
seen her starring in movies like INTHECUT by Jane Champion
and BRINGINGOUTTHEDEAD by Martin Scorsese. Theo and the
Skyscrapers are now playing gigs in USA and recording an
album due soon. She is definitely one of the most
interesting woman in rock nowadays, I interviewed her for
Punk Globe and since then can’t stop playing “broken girl”,
catch it on her web or at: **THEO AT MYSPACE** ooooo
Punk Globe: After the Lunachicks you started your own
band and also started an acting career. Do you feel grown
up? Is your new stuff more personal?
i was acting
before Lunachicks stopped playing, actually. I feel grown up
sometimes and then really not at all other times.
yeah, but really all of it has always been personal it's
just not as silly/funny now…
What are your inspirations?
things...people, friends, pain, joy, the future, the past
Any role models?
America Radio) Debbie Harry, Siouxie Sioux, David Bowie,
Do you think of yourself as a role models for young girls?
When they tell
me so i do. it's a great feeling, i am honored. i don't
think of myself that way all the time at all.
Do you think that your band can have a mainstream following
or it's more a cult thing?
works... i am ready for anything. how 'bout a mainstream
In MTV times is there any space for indie labels?
it seems so,
especially since indies are getting bigger and bigger. but
Even if you are a known name, is it hard to find a publicing
label for new bands?
sure...unless you are already selling a zillion records
What is the energy behind Theo's live gig?
Which artist would you like to play with?
Many people from the 90s (Bikini Kill, etc.) turned to
electronic? Will this happen to you or you are 100% of a
rock n roller?
At first i
starting a new band was too big and painful an idea, So, i
did performances with a video projection and a DAT and two
amazing dancers...very futuristic -in2001. when i was ready
to have a band again, it happened and here we are.
What are you listening these days?
In the future we'll see more Theo on the screen?
Is there any director you would like to work with?
i'd love to work
with Scorcese again...Michelle Gondry, too.
What do you think of Juliette Lewis, she made the contrary
of you, from actress to singer.
i think she's a
talented actor. i haven't seen her play yet .i want to. the
scientology thing freaks me out a bit though.
Have you listened to her cd?
Anything you want to say to our Punk Globe readers?
take chances and
have no regrets! don't try to fit into anyone's mold.
