The mid-90's brought us a lot of angry-sounding female singer-songwriters, largely due to the appeal of Liz Phair. Yep, I'm giving the credit to Liz. Fight me in the comments.
Some were excellent. Some were awful.
Poe managed to stand out from that crowd by bringing members of Suicidal Tendencies and Guns 'n' Roses into the studio with her. Her music was - is - borderline experimental folk-punk. Her first big single was "Trigger Happy Jack", a justifiably angry song that makes what I think is a pretty obvious statement in the chorus.
One great thing about Poe is that she is just as emotive live as she was on video. Watch her throw her whole body into this performance.
