Now I don't follow your scene musically, I'd heard the girls name mentioned a few times in the past but I've probably learned more about Ms Woo from this thread than I already knew so I don't know how bad her transgressions are, does she over-play the working class card? does she bullshit about her background? if she's open and honest about her actual roots then I can't see why she shouldn't be accepted. if Ma and Pa's bank balance is the only factor in this then that's extremely shallow and superficial.
Same thing goes along a lot of musical genres. Think of how many punk acts hardcore acts, want to act like poor working class or whatnot, then you find out they had a decent proper middle class or higher upbringing. When I was young I would say it does matter, but as a slightly older guy I would agree that one cannot choose what situation they are born into, only what they do with it.
Let me say, like Guana, i know jack shit about Jenny Woo other than what has been posted in this thread.
But I can also say that it sounds like Jenny Woo doesn't know what its like to go to bed hungry, to not eat any meal that wasnt provided for you by your school and if school is out, good luck. What its like to have an addict for a parent, or in my case, a single father who is disabled and on fixed income, or a stressed out, well meaning single parent who works 2 or 3 jobs and still can barely keep his or her head above water, let alone buy you an Ipod or a pair of Vans. What it means to not go out with your friends - not because you arent allowed, but because they are going shopping at the mall then out for ice cream and your parents dont have a dollar to spare, and you dont want to be that guy. What its like to be so fucking broke you can't afford a bus pass. To shoplift at a charity secondhand store (Goodwill here in the states in the common one). I have done the charity store thing. Pick out about 5 shirts, go in the dressing room, put them on in layers, etc. Not hard since there is really no security. And that is how you find the punxest shirts.
This is why I know what antisocial is saying, Woo just doesnt know what is like to be born and bred. And he would rather associate with those that are "real". Well, that's his choice, but in the long run you might miss out on some really cool people with a lot of ideas if you stick to that mindframe.
But it doesnt mean she is simply a poseur trying to cash in-- cash into what, exactly? A lucrative life touring shitty clubs playing Oi! music? An occasional festival? C'mon.
