It’s a rare treat to listen to JD Samson, the epicly mustachioed icon of MEN/Le Tigre fame, and Willy Siegel, front-person for killer queercore band Ponytail, chatting on Skype about gender issues, feminism, being kick-ass queer rockers and the occasional want for a penis.

The conversation, recorded by Brooklyn-based Impose Magazine, finds Samson two years after Motherboard interviewed her hot on the heels of starting her electro project MEN, while Siegel is currently riding the wave of the release of Ponytail’s wonderfully-tited third album Do Whatever You Want All The Time. Apart from the delight of hearing foreskin-regrowth anecdotes, this is the finest example of a video chat interview we’ve seen in awhile. Maybe ever.
