Some girls are out of this world.

So here’s the deal: aliens and punks. Both come from planets far, far away. Enn comes from the London punk scene that is staggering to its feet in 1977. Zan is some sort of colour-coordinated space alien spawned from a species that eat their young. Put these two outsiders together and you’ve got a romance that’s going nowhere — but fast and with a pounding bass line. Combine the fevered imaginations of sci-fi genius Neil Gaiman and Sundance maverick John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus), throw in Elle Fanning and Nicole Kidman for good measure, add enough pure punk to clear your sinuses and you’ve got the perfect primer to understanding the popular culture of the last forty years.
