Vivien Goldman

Just about freaked when I saw John N had shipped  me these, I've been sort of a semi-fan of Vivien Goldman for a while.......she's done a lot of different things, notably for some perhaps Flying Lizards, she also had a track on the "Anti NY" Compilation (included here).....this is pretty much, as far as I can tell, is a pretty damn comprehensive look at her career, with various bands and on her the article attached, you'll be surprised how much great shit she has been a part of........until next time, thanking the legend John N for yet another winning submission.
