As the book Lexicon Devil: The Short Life And Fast Times Of Darby Crash And The Germs celebrated its 21st anniversary a few days ago, it seems that hard rock/heavy metal music publication Louder Sound has revisited the book and discovered a revelation led by Joan Jett.

Jett, born Joan Marie Larkin, used to make frozen urine “pissicles” to ward off sex pests. 

As she told the book’s author, Brendan Mullen, who co-wrote Lexicon Devil with former The Germs drummer Don Bolles and American journalist Adam Parfrey: “Oh God, the Pissicles! That was a thing that me and my friends did as a defense [sic] against assholes; I don't know if we ever actually utilized them, but we always had them at the ready.”

It’s something nobody should have to do to stop abuse from occurring. 

Joan Jett is a rock and roll and punk rock pioneer. Jett’s take on punk is well-versed in hard, rough-riding rock‘n’roll and garage that achieves broader appeal by hitting some pretty anthemic rock notes. 

You know all the songs: Bad Reputation and I Hate Myself For Loving You, Cherry Bomb, I Love Rock And Roll, Crimson And Clover and Real Wild Child - Joan Jett solidified herself as a hard rock music icon since the ‘70s with her bands, The Runaways and The Blackhearts.

She’s also known for her production work with Bikini Kill, Circus Lupus and The Germs. 

“It is reassuring to know that after 40 years of making music, Joan Jett has lost none of her edge,” The Music found in a 2019 live review of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts at the Corner Hotel - much too small a venue for music royalty.

Reviewer Guido Farnell added, “Fierce as all hell, she blasts fans away with a collection of hits and sentimental favourites. Jett’s voice still has all its gritty power. As vital as ever, her vocals stand tall in a polished mix that burns with The Blackhearts incendiary riffs.”
