Long Live Amanda Palmer

Miss super-fabulissima Amanda Palmer. Known as the stylish, unique, fun and adorable singer and composer of the Dresden Dolls. You can find more about her on her blog.


Here are two songs from her solo-album "Who Killed Amanda Palmer". Her label Roadrunner Records wanted to take certain shots out of the video "Leeds United" which showed her belly, which they thought looked too fat... Her fans answered with starting a protest-campaign called ReBellyon.
Why do music-companies try to make all female artists look like clones? Sometimes I find it hard to keep singers apart. There are so many look-alike stereotype ready-mades. Amanda Palmer is different: individual, sometimes sweet, sometimes harsh, always a non-conformist.

I love how she and Neil Gaiman are married. Such an amazing couple.
