Every week, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 39-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.
Last week, Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill) emailed me to say she’d made a video about Mecca Normal for NPR Music.
Kathleen has always been generous with her enthusiasm for us—maybe even before Bikini Kill had formed, when she interviewed me for her zine and took photos of us for our label (K Records).
