In News You Missed This Week

In News You Missed This Week

To celebrate Bikini Kill frontwoman and key figure in the riot grrrl movement, Kathleen Hanna’s recent performance at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre Boston Mayor Marty Walsh proclaimed that April 9, 2015 is now officially “Riot Grrrl Day” in Boston.

The full text of his proclamation:


The riot grrrl philosophy has never felt more relevant, with misogyny still rampant in many cultural spaces;” and “Riot grrrls redefine the language used against them and continue to fight the newest incarnations of patriarchy. In doing so, they ironically confirm one ex-congressman’s accidental wisdom: ‘the female body has ways to try to shut that down.’ It sure does: women’s voices telling their stories can shut that down.”


While Punk had been popular since the mid 1970’s by the late 1980’s it hadn’t, as yet, produced a popular female fronted group… but that was about to change.

The beginning of the ‘90s saw most of the music world’s attention beginning to focus on Seattle’s burgeoning music scene but an hour south of Seattle in Olympia WA, and centered around Evergreen College, another music scene was beginning to take shape. 

Overshadowed by Seattle, but no less noisy, this music scene was built by, built for, and built around Women, their bands and a sub-genre of Punk dubbed Riot Grrrl.

Riot grrrls weren’t afraid of volume, impoliteness and the hounds of political correctness. They had a message, and they wanted to say it as loud as possible.

In 1991 the riot grrrl manifesto was published in the pages of BIKINI KILL ZINE 2.

Two of the seminal riot grrrl groups were Bikini Kill and Bratmobile. Started in 1991 by University of Oregon students Allison Wolfe and Molly Neuman Bratmobile would break-up publicly on stage in 1994, reform in 1998 and break-up again in 2003.

Bikini Kill formed in Olympia, WA, in 1990 with Kathleen Hanna (vocals), Billy Karren (guitar), Kathi Wilcox (bass) and Tobi Vail (drums).

Noted for their fiery live performances and notorious for its radical feminist lyrics the band while occasionally

collaborating with high-profile acts such as Nirvana and Joan Jett 

was better known for shunning both the major record labels and the mainstream rock press. In 1997 after releasing two full length albums, several EPs and two compilations the band called it quits. Hanna would then go on to produce the lo-fi solo project The Julie Ruin and the band Le Tigre.

In 2015 riot grrrl bands and their philosophy don’t receive the kind of press coverage that they received 25 years ago but


The riot grrrl philosophy, aesthetic and legacy continues to influence art today including a slew of new female punk projects like The Barbazons, Slutever and others.

Happy Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day. Did you, once again, forget the heart shaped box of chocolates, the stuffed Teddy bear, the roses, the jewelry, or just a card. Well… there is always the “Gift of Music.” Good luck with that.

For myself, it won’t be love keeping me warm today, it will be once again shoveling snow.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Links to my original post & the refreshed download links are found in the album covers.

Pipeline at 25

So how’s the Winter of 2014-15 treating you? I’m tired of dressing in layers so Spring and warmer weather can’t come soon enough.


In celebration of 25 years of Pipeline!, a two-hour live music show, that has been emanating from WMBR MIT’s radio station since 1989, Boston rock bands reunited for a series of weekend concerts which ran from Sept. 12 to Oct. 12, 2014.

So when did I find out about it? Between Christmas and New Years. Talk about being late for the party!

Except for an occasional Bruins or Red Sox game (with their ticket prices I do mean occasional) I try to avoid going into Boston, but for anyone of those concerts I would have gladly made an exception.

Over the years I’ve posted about many of those same Boston bands that reunited in appreciation for their chance to perform live on Pipeline and so accordingly I’ve refreshed all those posts.

Each album cover links back to my original post where you can find refreshed links for each album.

I may have been late to the party but you don’t have to be.
