none of danielle dax is still in print in america although you can  
often find the late 80s big label dance singles(' tomorrow never  
knows' for example ) in the dollar bin. the albums and cds are  
expensive to acquire but she is SO worth it. the' jesus egg that  
wept' is one of my favorite pieces of vinyl of all times. a dvd on  
cherry red(' bad miss m') of her live is available on overstock dot  
com of all places- it has much of the 'jesus egg' on it. http:// 
www.overstock.com/Books-Movies-Music-Games/Danielle-Dax-Bad-Miss-M- 
Live-DVD/1833845/product.html?IID=prod1833845. her greatest hits was  
called " comatose non reaction- the thwarted pop career of danielle  
dax". it's harder to find than' the jesus egg'.i will venture that if  
you are persistent you can find them on mp3 blogs. they are out of  
print or i would not mention it.

  there is talk of her re-releasing the early albums. she had this  
amazing ability to convey a sort of pretty girly singer vulnerability  
so beloved and salivated over by male dominated/cliche swamped  
commercial music that masked a fire breathing, castrating lion- 
visceral songs about relationships, patriarchal religions , abuse . '  
the jesus egg that wept' was completely unique for it's time-kitchen  
sink feminist electronica from a blonde bombshell who wrote all her  
own music, had her own record label and pointedly laid claim to her  
rage . when she says ' silence all your lies with a knife' you  
believe it...and it all sounds so ... well ... pretty .

what about the Cramps? poison ivy is one of the few women they've  
ever had in any of those guitar mags and they were so scared they  
just put a wee picture of her with her favorite amp....(like 14 year  
old boys are gonna want to play ' goo goo muck'. their loss.) but i  
think girls need  guitar heros more than the boys- they have plenty.  
numerous women have played drums and bass in the cramps and they  
manage to shove a man out there in high heels and a dress to be the  
singer...
