Rachel Carns
Guy Lochhead, 02/11/11
American musician and graphic designer. Originally the drummer for Kicking Giant, she has since played in numerous other “queercore” bands, always recognisable by her distinctive stand-up drumming style. More recently, she has turned to graphic design, producing artwork, t-shirt designs etc. under the name System Lux. There are many truly iconic people within the scenes Carns works in, and I don’t think Carns is really one of them. I think I’ll hold out and include someone else instead, because I have a lot of time and respect for Kill Rock Stars and K-related bands. Although Carns has done a lot as an individual, I don’t think she’s the best representative of that scene, or that her work is the best introduction to it.
