Jane Jensen (b. 1968) is a rock musician and actress originally from Indianapolis, Indiana. Jane's music career began in Chicago, with a spell in the band Oxygiene 23. Subsequently, Jane's debut solo album "Comic Book Whore" was produced by Craig Kafton and released on Flip Records in 1996.
In 1996 Jane set off on her US promotional tour for her album “Comic Book Whore.” Her band lineup included former Siouxsie and the Banshees guitarrist John Valentine Carruthers and Sandy Brockwell on keyboards, who now plays bass with The Marianne Pillsburys. Jane Jensen opened for acts such as Better Than Ezra, Linda Perry, James,The Barenaked Ladies and was well received at South By South West (SXSW) Festival.
Her second solo album "Burner" was released in 2002. Jane's music is somewhat hard to characterize - the AMG review for Burner describes it as "electric girl-pop grunge with a twist of hip-hop blues".
In addition her music career, Jane has starred in several movies and television shows,...
Tromeo and Juliet was released in 1996 by the B-movie production company, Troma Pictures.
The punk rock violent parody of William Shakespeare classic, Romeo and Juliet , the movie makers attempted to use gore and sexuality to shock the viewer in much the same way as it is believed actors might have done in Shakespeare's time (with proper adjustments to content to suit the times, updating the fashion and setting to contemporary needs, also in Shakespeare's tradition).
The movie stars Jane Jensen, Will Keenan, Evan Roberts, Valentine Miele, Sean Gunn (brother of screenwriter James Gunn), Debbie Rochon and Maximillian Shaun. Lemmy, of Motörhead fame, narrates. It was adapted by James Gunn and Lloyd Kaufman, and also directed by Kaufman and, uncredited, Gunn.
Shortly after finishing this film, Kaufman and Gunn went on to write Kaufman's autobiography together: All I Need to Know about Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger.
