Super Sonic Chica

I recently saw the cult classic movie Tromeo & Juliet for the first time, and so I feel it's appropriate to mention Jane Jensen, who starred as Juliet in the film, and who I knew long before seeing the movie, as a musician.

In high school, I subscribed to numerous magazines and I remember being stopped in my tracks by an image of a glittery mohawk-sporting Jane Jensen and looking into who she was. Soon after I spotted her first solo record at a used CD store and was quite taken by the glammed up punk she was making. It's rockin', fun, seductive, yet light-hearted, and gets much less attention than it deserves. Her song "Luv Song" is so fun and original that I can't help but smile and sing along with it. It's definitely worth a listen.

She has tracks, including "Luv Song", available for download on her MySpace page.
