Donna Dresch

Donna Dresch is a zine editor and musician based in Portland, OR. where she also runs the independent record label Chainsaw.

Donna began her zine Chainsaw in the late 1980s in Olympia, WA. Four issues were released. It was one of the early queercore zines as well as a proto-Riot Grrrl zine, since one of its concurrent themes was women in music. The last issue was a music compilation cassette tape which Donna sold while on tour with Fifth Column, and which announced the onset of Chainsaw as a music label. Chainsaw has released recordings by such artists as Sleater Kinney, Team Dresch, Longstocking, The Third Sex, Tracy +the Plastics, The Need, Excuse 17, Heavens to Betsy and many others.

Donna Dresch has been a member of a number of bands, most notably Team Dresch, her namesake band, for which she played guitar and bass.
