Cherry Bomb Dopplebock | 2002
Initially “Cherry Bomb” made me think of lurid mid-century pin-up art. But I wanted to reapropriate that concept for 2002, with a more empowered and Portlandy female icon. My inspiration came Riot Grrrl and punk aesthetic and figures like Kathleen Hanna, Brody Dalle and Poison Ivy. But also from the broader influence of women in music in 2002; Avril Lavigne, AGSFB, The Donnas, Gwen Stephani, Pink, Saraha Hotnights et al.
