Katrina Jane Garside is a singer, songwriter, visual artist, and poet, known for her dynamic musical projects, which have ranged in style from noise rock to acoustic folk-influenced, and featured vocals ranging from childlike whispers to harsh scream-singing.
Surprise! Here’s another interview for ya’ll. We’re delighted to bring you this interview with the wonderful KateJane Garside. Well known for her staggering voice and stunning stage presence, KatieJane has been involved in a number of musical projects since the late 80s, most notably the garage punk outfit Daisy Chainsaw in the early 90s and ferocious noise rockers Queenadreena from 99 to 2010. She subsequently went on to form Ruby Throat with her life partner Chris Whittingham, a much more subtle neofolk affair, before marrying the noise and the folk together with their latest album under the name Liar, Flower, called Geiger Counter. We were lucky enough to catch KatieJane as she was on dry land, and she was kind enough to lend us a generous amount of her time so we could talk about her life and career. We cover everything from Daisy Chainsaw to the present day, digging into her life story, some of the things that make her tick as a musician and getting some pretty great tales in the process. This is one for the books so we hope you folk enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it. We’re back next week with Mark’s choice of The Ugly Organ by Cursive.
KatieJane Garside’s journey into music is a lot different than most. Unless, of course, you know another artist who spent their formative years sailing the world, spending literally years at sea. Then it turns out that she was discovered by legenday producer Glyn Johns. Her first productive band, Daisy Chainsaw, resulted in Courtney Love calling her one of the original Riots Grrrls. From Daisy Chainsaw through Queen Adreena, her music was unmistakable. And even when she met her longtimetime partner Chris Whittingham and changed gears to a quieter sound with Ruby Throat, it was just as intense. Now KatieJane and Chris have plugged back in with Liar, Flower and combined those sounds into something really unique. Check out the new Liar, Flower album, Geiger Counter on One Little Indian.

I really want to make a terrible sailing pun right now, but I’ll stop myself while you check out the show with KatieJane Garside of Liar, Flower.
