TMP157 Lenny Zenith: How We Got Here

The pioneering transgender singer, composer, writer, and activist’s band RZA was among the earliest acts on the New Orleans punk rock scene, and his Pop Combo fine-tuned the melodic, angular approach with a fresh lineup. Following a move to NYC, he led several other successful bands including Jenifer Convertible, Tenterhooks, and Minor Planets. His latest single, “Quarantine,” was recorded in New Orleans and NYC and benefits the House of Tulip. After a lifetime navigating the challenges of being trans in the rock’n’roll world, Lenny must have developed a pretty thick skin. That could come in handy with the Troubled Men. Topics include a new tenant, a nose biter, a firing squad, early life, a California transition, KROQ, WTUL, the Normals, Becky Kury, Julian Garcia, Ed White, opening for Iggy and U2, a tragic loss, MTV airplay, Cuban roots, cocktails, new music, the Losers Lounge, Blue Velvet Studio, Leigh Harris, the Streisand effect, the “Almost Ready” doc, the elephants’ graveyard, Nicole Pavy, and much more.
