Kate Fagan :: I Don’t Want To Be Too Cool

In her essential new book Hit Girls: Women of Punk in the USA, 1975-1983, author Jen B. Larson writes that new wave singer Kate Fagan “never wanted to fit in, but to find herself.” That much is clear listening to Captured Track’s new compilation I Don’t Want To Be Too Cool, which collects Fagan’s early ’80s singles and outtakes. She joins us from New Orleans to discuss the comp, her roots, working with reggae legend Peter Tosh, and share a series of photos from her archives.
