Queen Zee


Tuesday 2nd May 2017

Name, where are you from?
Queen Zee from the one and only Liverpool.

Describe your style in three words?
Punk rock Madonna.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Gay For Johnny Depp in Manchester, especially 'Kill The Cool Kids'.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Joan Jett & X-Ray Spex playing 'Bad Reputation' and 'Oh Bondage Up Yours!'.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
The queercore punk movement especially in America with bands such as Limp Wrist and the rise of Riot Grrrl with Bikini Kill and L7.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Marsha P Johnson, an incredible Trans woman who we should all be inspired by.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Drop the Dumbulls in Liverpool is the greatest venue in the Universe. It's an oasis of strange for the outcasts and weirdos in an increasingly pale, male and stale music scene.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
All of G.L.O.S.S. are an inspiration. Unquestionable, unwavering resolve in their politics and ethics, and an absolute role model for so many trans people out there.

Queen Zee are a fuzzed up punk, glam and pop outfit from Liverpool. Armed with bags of sass (their 2017 debut EP was titled 'Eat My Sass') and a reputation for hedonistic live shows Queen Zee's music tackles everything from sexuality and gender to global politics.
