SKOOLING: High School Confidential

Today’s Lesson: CAROLE POPE.

Before High School Musical and Breaker High there was High School Confidential, the iconic song by the Canadian band Rough Trade, led by Carole Pope. The Juno and Genie award winning singer was the first openly lesbian rock star. Her intriguing relationship with Dusty Springfield continues to provide mystique to her persona. This is classic 80’s New Wave, and it never grows tired.

Here’s is a circuit remix of HSC, recorded for Queer As Folk.

Carole Pope is performing one show only, November 27 @ Buddies. If you have never seen her live… she is a must see (Add it to your iCal RIGHT NOW).
