about

sister george's classic 1994 album , here for the first time as a digital download. 'Drag King' came out on Catcall Records in the u.k and outpunk records in the USA .The band found themselves heralded in the pages of British music magazines such as the NME and hey toured with acts like Huggy Bear and Hissyfit , Mouthfull and Children's Hour, and popularized queercore in the UK. 'Drag King' features a hardcore style cover of the Tom Robinson song "Glad to Be Gay". The Sister George's version featured the voice of serial killer Aileen Wuornos, and the band chanting, "We kill in self defense".In a gig in london's club v, the alternative queer club, in the mid 90's, robinson intoduced his song by saying, "i'm now going to sing a sister george cover".
in memory of sister george bass player lisa.
