Hippie Death Goddess (of the Day)

Gunilla Thorn was/is a Swedish pop-singer who recorded a handful of brooding girl-group songs in London (with legendary genius/madman producer Joe Meek!) in the  60's.

So did many young ladies, of course, but none of them had jet back hair, an icy stare, and a name like Gunilla fuckin' Thorn. That name pretty much screams for an umlaut or two.

They didn't usually pose brandishing swords like a black metal moll, either.

Gunilla's recorded legacy is sparse, but well worth the hunt. Check out the great Bubblegum Soup blog for more info!
