Many things have been said of Sook-Yin Lee over the years, but the notion that she lacks sufficient courage has not been among them. As an artist and writer, as the charismatic lead singer and songwriter of Vancouver proto-punk band Bob's Your Uncle, the former British Columbian has long been known for a balls-out attitude as well as a willingness to pull up stakes and make big changes, even when things are working well for her. Hence the shift, in the late s, from rough-and-tumble West Coast scenemaker to well groomed, Toronto-based veejay on MuchMusic. A couple of other developments put her on the path to starring in Shortbus, a film that has garnered rave reviews in the States and brought her big press there and in Canada. And at the beginning of the next decade, she landed a small part in John Cameron Mitchell's rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
