Ex-Veruca Salt Singer Pregnant With Defiance

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Veruca Salt has long been broken up but one of its founders, Nina Gordon, is still the “Seether” when she thinks of some music critics.

Gordon has recently finished recording her sophomore solo album, Bleeding Heart Graffiti, so she’s confident enough to laugh about the times when Veruca Salt took a beating in the press for not being “indie” or “grunge” enough.

In her words, “There were times when you’d think, ‘There’s no way they’d write that about a guy,’ like they called us the skinnier, f-able Breeders.”

She laughs, adding: “And we were like, why you gotta dis’ the Breeders?! We love them.”

Another writer, according to Gordon, “hated me and I hated him; he actually described my solo career as being ‘dreadful’ and ‘stillborn.”’

She chuckles now, adding: “I mean, have SOME kind of standards.”
