In the Beginning

Jenna Disease (Honeymoon Disease) on Robyn is Here

Robyn, 'Robyn is Here' (BMG , 1995)

I was 5 years old when I saw the coolest girl I've ever seen before. Her name was Robyn, and at the time she was releasing her first album, Robyn is Here. I bought it immediately! The songs were of course not as badass as she looked, but I liked it. I really, really liked it!

And just like [Honeymoon Disease drummer] Jimi's dad—who was a hardcore KISS fan—mine was, too. So, of course, the first rock album he introduced me to was Destroyer. I think I was 8 or 9 or something. It was the coolest thing I've ever heard! KISS is absolutely the band who has formed me more than any other bands. The show, the music, the looks—they've just got everything I need. It's as simple as that!
