Gina Birch is the most interesting person of Caroline Coon

“I was completely besotted with conceptual art, land art and fine art and Punk was really interwoven for me.  It was new way of looking at the world, a way of finding my own voice that didn’t subscribe to the status quo.”

Gina Birch is a founding member of the all female seminal post-punk band the Raincoats and an old friend of Caroline Coon. They are both renowned for their participation in the the late 70’s punk scene from a female perspective. Gina lives in a old squatted co-opted space in Notting Hill Gate with her 2 adopted Chinese kids.
