It’s no secret that I have a fondness for Network Awesome. It’s pretty much the best place to stream archive TV footage, films and music videos.
Starting Monday 18th Jason Forrest and his band of merry men have curated an entire week dedicated to some of the most iconic women in Punk. Expect interviews, music videos, live performances and documentaries featuring the likes of Siouxsie Sioux, Lydia Lunch and Poly Styrene.
