Dan Aquilante of the New York Post started off his interview with Brett ‘Donna A.’ Anderson of The Donnas on a bit of a tense note, asking about what they thought about critics attributing their success a novelty act or gimmick. “I think every band has a gimmick,” she said. “When your gimmick appears to be that you’re all girls, people treat it like it’s an insult, but when your gimmick is that you’re Swedish and you all wear matching suits, you’re a fu**ing genius. Take Clinic. Nobody’s saying, ‘They’re cashing in on how they were born boys.’ It’s like, ‘Clinic’s so smart, they wear hospital scrubs, where’d they ever get that idea?'” Nypost.com has since removed the article.
