Art rock? Noise rock? Punk-metal? Alternative? White Zombie may have been unclassifiable, but it didn’t stop them from carving out a place for themselves in music history. The band became a multiplatinum, two-time Grammy nominee with the release of their 1992 album, La Sexorcisto. But while most people will remember their bizarre look and macabre music, what many failed to realize was that their lanky, high-octane bass player was a woman. I’m in the Band charts White Zombie’s rise from the gritty music scene of New York’s Lower East Side in the eighties to arena headliners during the nineties alternative-explosion that followed in Nirvana's wake, while sharing the unlikely story of a female musician who won the respect and adoration of male metal musicians and fans. From 1985 to 1996, Sean Yseult was the sole woman not only in White Zombie, but in the entire metal scene: bands, roadies, managers, you name it —with the exception of girlfriends and groupies, Yseult was in a world by herself. With I’m in the Band, Yseult combines eleven years of tour diaries, flyers, and personal photos and ephemera (many featuring rock icons such as Lemmy Kilmister, Iggy Pop, Joey Ramone, and Lux Interior) into a striking visual memoir.
She offers fans a unique vantage on the life of a mega-band during rock’s last golden age.
