Keach Hagey—now elevated from Village Voice intern— has, it turns out, a lady name. She also has a lady band! And they're really pretty.
The feminist post-punk-post-whatever band, called Fur Cups with Teeth, has been described as " a cross between Le Tigre, Bikini Kill, and Ladytron." They are all up in TEH MYSPACE, with internet friends such as Ultragrrrl and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The two other gals are a handbag designer and another writer, who also works at a museum. Does it get any more downtown? Anyone?
Like all Village Voice Press Clips columnists before her—does anyone remember Sydney Schanberg's 29-part series on Life Under Bush? No? Us neither!—she believes, or at least once did, that the Bush administration is threatening to turn the U.S. "into a state akin to economic feudalism."
"Nothing's gonna happen to the band," said Keach, reached at the Voice this afternoon. "We're going to keep rocking!"
