Carole is out lesbian who is recognized as a leader in the early new wave/rock genre beginning in the 1980s when she lead the group Rough Trade. Her recent solo recordings blend rock with dance.

Carole Pope and Rough Trade, known for their sexual lyrics and provocative act, ushered Canada from the punk movement of the 1970s to the new wave sound of the 1980s and catapulted themselves into the international music scene. Attracting what Carole calls "a diversified audience, and other artists who were practicing their own forms of nihilism," Pope learned how to preen with the best of them and let the raunch shine through. In her recent autobiography Anti Diva, Pope offers a no-holds-barred look at her adventures in the music scene -- on the concert stage, in the recording studio, in the bedroom -- and tells of all the mind-blowing, gender-bending parties along the way.
