Here’s another edition of This Woman’s Work, a series of stories from Classic Album Sundays where we highlight classic albums by female musicians, women who continue to influence the world of pop culture and inspire others. This time, we’re looking at the debut album of a band that seems to have landed here from some groovy planet. Four decades ago, the B-52s arrived on the Athens, Georgia, party scene with killer guitar riffs, their silly but eerie lyrics, and their sky-high beehive wigs.
Colleen is joined by founding member Kate Pierson who talks about her memories of recording the album and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters who is an Uber fan and also reveals the B-52’s significance in the LGBT community.
