Fox: red-haired omnivorous species introduced to Australia and widely considered a pest. Adept at getting into and out of sticky situations.
Poncing: magnificent, sparkling self-assured pomp and strut, oftentimes onstage. Reclaimed pejorative.
Bowie is dead. And becoming a songwriter increasingly seems a crap career choice. But Geraldine Quinn (The Weekly, Spicks and Specks, RocKwiz, Upper Middle Bogan) is no quitter. When your hero releases an album two days before carking it, you don’t take breaks.
Fox Poncing bends genres, twists musical and gender stereotypes and asks some hard questions about Australia’s cultural cringe along the way. But most of all it is a suite of new songs from an award-winning cabaret artist who has a frankly baffling amount of bespoke sequinned jumpsuits in her wardrobe.
Geraldine Quinn has been nominated for almost 30 awards in the course of a decade-long career that spans Australia, New Zealand and Edinburgh.
