The Motherf**ker Mix, by Caoimhe Lavelle

“Love set you going like a fat gold watch” – Solid Space’s “New Statue” adapts Sylvia Plath’s “Morning Song,” depicting the uniqueness of a newborn as a work of art. Vital Disorder’s “Prams” complains of lost dreams and potential, while for Poison Girls punk serves as a vessel for the righteous anger of being working class mother.

Other notable mamas in this issue’s mix include Bjork (in cosmic search for her keys), Nina Hagen (on a Freak-Out for All The Family), Sinéad O Connor and Kate Bush (keeping the Divil from the door).

This is for all you punk mothers out there! Jump, Mama, Jump!
