After complimenting Goldblade singer John Robb’s shoes without knowing who he was (oops!), I’ve sat down on a backless, stumpy little chair in the back of Rough Trade Records, the original home of vinyl records and the punk movement, to listen to this incredible woman tell her story. She tells it with an incredible grace and humor that makes me admire her even more than I did when I first watched Jubilee back in February, and when asked if she felt her provocative way of dressing made her a sex symbol of the time, she says with a straight face,
