Seth Bogart is dropping the nickname for his forthcoming album: the openly gay punk rocker behind Hunx and His Punx is using his own name and team up with riot grrrl legend Kathleen Hanna for “Eating Makeup,” the first single off his upcoming LP.
The video is giving us Peewee Herman meets John Waters, with the duo and others in Day-Glo surrealist garb and plenty of mascara and lipliner.
Bogart’s been big in queer music scene for a while now, first as a member of the electroclash gang Gravy Train!!!! and then as the force behind HaHP. (He’s also got a fashionable line of clothing, Wacky Wacko, with a shop on Sunset Boulevard that’s become a real destination in its own right.)
Bogart may be ditching his pseudonym but he’s still got us feeling our girly grunge fantasy on “Makeup.”
Watch the video below.
Bogart’s forthcoming album is expected in 2016 on Burger Records.
