“All
Women Are Bitches” was not a chart topper, but it represented a significant
thread in Toronto’s musical tapestry thanks to the all-female art punk band
Fifth Column. Former band members recall the 1980s queer art punk scene and
their progressive efforts to unite music, film and zine culture to challenge
conventional art practice, gender roles and femininity. Archival films from the
influential alt-cinema/production collective the Funnel complement present day
interviews with Caroline Azar, Beverly Breckenridge, GB Jones and Bruce la
Bruce. The band’s memories of the fun and feuds that fueled their creativity
and built their reputations connect to the later Riot Grrrl movement. Most
enlightening may be what was Toronto’s first zine war, where rivals battled it
out through handcrafted photocopies. Three decades may heal old wounds but
clearly a few scars remain. Kevin Hegge pays homage to a bygone era while
keeping the indie spirit alive.
