Carole Pope and her band Rough Trade were New Wave pioneers in the Canadian musical landscape of the late seventies and early eighties. She became one of Canada’s most recognizable voices and faces in Pop Culture. She defied sexual, musical industry conventions and assaulted the nation’s squeamish and prudish with her titilating lyrics and sexual overtones. When “High school Confidential” first hit the airwaves a certain change was in the air and young queer and feminist Canadians had a new Icon to celebrate. The band released numerous albums and hit songs. Carole has released many solo projects and a book called Anti Diva. Throughout the years Carole continues to create music and has established herself as true North Legend.
