ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
man, wendy o. williams continues to get no respect. : (
Disc 10 has the Plasmatics.
Finally a seperate, but equal, music compilation for women !
Wot, no Pearl Harbor and the Explosions? :-(
12 discs of female-fronted punk rock? I think this may be the most epic music post ever on the Internet.
I don’t know whether to be ashamed to know so few bands of Part 1, or to be proud to have known, heard and loved at least one per disc: Au Pairs, The Slits, Delta 5, X-Ray Spex.
Josie Cotton’s also there, but I gotta say she ain’t the bee’s knees to me.
Interesting, post. As far as female fronted punk, Siouxsie and the Banshees John Peel sessions from 77-81 is as fine of an example as there is.
