Cherie Ann Currie is best known as the lead vocalist of the all-female rock band the Runaways. Alongside bandmates Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Sandy West, Jackie Fox and Vicki Blue, Currie rocked the mid-to-late 1970s so hard, she was dubbed "the lost daughter of Iggy Pop and Brigitte Bardot".

Currie went solo after the band parted ways, then went on to team up with her identical twin sister, Marie Currie to create an album. Their duet "Since You Been Gone", charted number 95 on US charts. Currie has provided ‘guest vocals’ on many albums over the years, working with The Ramones and Rick Derringer. She also released some duet projects of her own including singles with ex-bandmate Lita Ford and Glenn Danzig.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
