GB Jones' mixtape

GB Jones is an artist, musician and filmmaker who has been a pivotal part of the Toronto queer scene since the 1980s. Around about 1991 while in high school in the Pittsburgh suburbs I discovered her band Fifth Column and sent away for a VHS copy of her film Yo-Yo Gang. We struck up a correspondence and when I happened to be in Toronto over Easter she invited me to meet up. I went to her studio/home and we sat and talked about music for quite a while. This was the mixtape she gave me when I left that afternoon – full of bands that I had never heard of and would soon start discovering.
