Cool excerpt from the new documentary, “The Punk Singer,” at Spin today.

The film is about former Bikini Kill leader/ current The Julie Ruin front-person, Kathleen Hanna, and in this clip Hanna and others talk about Nirvana and Hanna’s role.

Q&A: Kathleen Hanna Talks About “The Punk Singer”

In today’s New York Times Kathleen Hanna spoke about why she cooperated with having a documentary, “The Punk Singer,” made about her life, and why she is so open about herself in the film. “The Punk Singer” will be in theaters starting next week. There’s a clip from it below.

You really opened up your life, from late-stage Lyme disease to your relationship with your husband.

Mortality looming over you really changes your personality in such a huge way. I thought I was dying, so I was like, “I don’t care anymore — I am vulnerable. I’m sick of being guarded!” Adam really got me through coping with Lyme: every day, he would place every single one of the 39 pills I had to take in my pill case so I didn’t have to do it. He’s the person who changed my IV bags, kept the house clean, cooked every single meal for me and kept everything running for two years. Besides the fact that he’s hot as hell, really talented and has the best sense of humor of anyone I know, who else would change an IV bag for you while you’re laying on the couch having a seizure?

“The Punk Singer” begins with footage of you performing an early confessional spoken-word piece where you describe the importance of “screaming what’s unspoken.”

I’m standing in a coffee shop with Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, rocking back and forth and saying all this stuff about incest! When I see it today, my stomach drops and I want to hide under a blanket. At the same time, that’s what I was like — Mr. Confrontation.

Video: The Julie Ruin Do “V.G.I.”

This past Tuesday night (Sept. 17, 2013) The Julie Ruin came to San Francisco and played Slim’s. A fan filmed the group performing “V.G.I.” The sound is good, Kathleen Hanna’s voice is amazing, and the video is totally cool.

If you want to read about the show, the Bay Guardian ran this review.
