Here’s a bit about Jeorgia from her own biography
Jeorgia Anderson: Jeorgia Anderson is a living artist who has performed in SF, NY, and LA for centuries. After her studies at UC Davis and USF, Jeorgia created guerilla art exhibits on the street in a series called “Art Goes…” which included a burned out building, shoe store, and rehearsal studio. Experimental music, fashion, and art led her to La Mammelle, the Dadaists, and punk rock in SF. She got a guitar and Olga asked her to play in VS, as seen in Hardcore California and Excapees books. Jeorgia went to NYC with Tuxedomoon and stayed for years, appearing in the scene with bands, films, and fashion. Returning to SF in the 80s, she started her own record label Staccato Dysdain and released two vinyl singles as The Mechanical Bride. Heading to LA in the ’90s, Jeorgia wrote and recorded more of her songs and made a public access TV show, MECHANICAL BRIDE, which ran for 13 years and showcased her music and hyper visual images. Finding the digital revolution a sad excuse for reality, Jeorgia is fascinated with preserving the analog ways. The SF punk reunions by Punk Rock Sewing Circle have brought together the real people who were there and new people who care.
