Happy Birthday, Justine Frischmann! The frontwoman from the oft-sued band Elastica turns 44 today. Best known for the song, ‘Connection,’ it was licensed everywhere in the early 90’s. The band was sued by both The Stranglers and Wire for similarities to other songs.  Elastica is no more, but Frischmann moved to Boulder, Colorado to attend school for visual arts in the mid 2000’s. A crazy cover from 90’s brit pop group Collapsed Lung gives it a different, if still dated feel.
