(Originally Appeared in Mutant Renegade Zine #3 – July 1993)
You may know her as Fen, that girl in ColaVision, or the psychotic one for living one year in the same house with Grog, Timmy Bo Dean Wyatt Earp, and Psycho Gail, but Jennifer Cook is one of the shining stars in Dayton’s PUNK ROCK scene (or lack thereof). Jen started to play bass guitar during the Summer of 1992 in the basement of the Oxymoron practice palace. Grog (Oxymoron bass player & Jen’s beau) gave her lessons at the South Dixie House of Hell. From there Jen started to play in a few basement bands which never got out of the basement. Finally Jen was asked by Patric Jones and Dave Grater to be part of a new band they were putting together and ColaVision was born.
