One article I'm reading starts with an unexpected declaration of gratitude on behalf of the author thankful of doing “the most beautiful job in the world”.

Why such a sudden burst of enthusiasm for being a journalist? The answers is: “you're going to encounter a lot of intriguing personalities worldwide”.

Of course he's going to interview Cristina Martinez.

“Do you think it's easy to find young attractive women which write great song, sing in a rock band, are endowed with brightness, kindness and sense of humor, are not afraid to declare their love for sex and can recall by heart the first twenty bands which played for Dischord?”

Another reference to miss Martinez on behalf of another fallen-in-love journalist.
Just in case, Dischord was a punk-label of Washington DC. You really don't have to worry if you never heard of it.


So Cristina seems to have charmed most of her interviewers. But they are not the only ones to knee in front of her fascination.
In 1995 was released the second album of Boss Hog a band leaded by Cristina Martinez as the main vocalist.

It was a landmark.

That album, which was named “Boss Hog” as for the band, is still worth to remember. The masterpiece of Cristina Martinez and her companion in life and in music Jon Spencer.

Both were survivors of the disgregation of the gang of misfits revolving around Pussy Galore, the hard-core punk band that stormed New York club scene in the late '80.
Five year are passed after that historic event – five years of silence –.
Cristina turned to her private life and had a baby. Meanwhile Mr. Spencer spent most of time time carrying on it's own projects with the John Spencer Blues Explosion band.
But now it's over. Boss Hog are back with a new album Whiteout, a new sexy video and a new pop attitude.

More pop less punk. Still Cristina tremendous charisma remains unchanged.
