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.

Black Friday

It’s just before 8:00 am here on the snowy East Coast this Friday after Thanksgiving. By now some people have probably finished their Christmas shopping and I haven’t even begun my Christmas list. For myself, I’m staying home and avoiding the marauding hordes at the mall.

The real reason for this post… earlier this week I refreshed the links to my 2007 post about the Britpop band the Boo radleys which can be found here.

Now for that second cup of coffee!

 

Boo! Forever

Wake Up!

In Heavy Rotation

Talk about falling into a rut! For the last month, whether because of laziness, or maybe I thought that they’d provide the answers to the secrets of the Universe, these three albums, Dawnrazor, The Essential Radio Birdman and Crickets And Fireflies were my constant musical companions on my daily walk. 

No matter how you like your music, the straight with chaser punk and rock n’ roll of Radio Birdman, the throat shredding Goth of Fields of the Nephilim or the psychedelic noodling of Kinski, Paik and Surface Of Eceyon this post likely has something to suit your musical tastes.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

I’m sure that you’ve all heard that expression at some time in your life and at the beginning of this year I had every intention of posting more in 2014 then I had in 2013…and yet here it is February 22 and my first post of the year is a re-run.

You can thank Rob for that because he wrote and asked me to refresh the links for The Adverts The Wonders Don’t Care.

Well as long as I was doing that I also refreshed the links for Die Toten Hosen’s Learning English – Lesson 1 and Mass. Ave.: The Boston Scene (1975-83) which are also part of my original 2008 post.

For Your Dining & Dancing Pleasure

I’m too busy at work to do much writing right now, but I can always find some time to refresh the links to some of my older posts. I noticed several weeks ago that the following artists,  St. Johnny, Cul de Sac, The Dentists and Trotsky Icepick had been receiving numerous hits, but of course all the links were dead… well that’s been rectified… so enjoy.

The Sleepers

Formed in Palo Alto, California, The Sleeper’s: Ricky Williams (vocals), Michael Belfer (guitar), Paul Draper (bass) and Tim Mooney (drums) were one San Francisco’s earliest Punk rock groups and a key member of 

the punk and new wave scene… centered around the Mabuhay Gardens… to SF what CBGBs was to New York

With the deep vocals and the inscrutable lyrics of singer Ricky Williams, throbbing bass lines and the neo-psychedelic guitar-work of Michael Belfer the Sleepers

challenged [both] the rigid bash-’em-out structures of early punk [and helped to] stretch the boundaries of the style into what is recognized today as “post-punk.”

   The Less An Object compiles everything the Sleeper’s released, two rare 7” from their punk/ post punk days, 1981’s quieter, but darker Painless Nights plus three unreleased tracks.

Williams and Mooney later joined the San Francisco punk group Toiling Midgets and after Williams passed away in 1992, Mooney left to join the group American Music Club.

The Wrens: Hold onto Your Day Job

OK… so where did the summer go? Tomorrow is Labor Day but it seems like it was just Memorial Day.


 

With just a bit more luck the Wrens might be better known today then they are… but then how many other bands can we say the same thing about? The answer to that is most!

Formed in the late 1980’s the group consisted of guitarist/vocalist Charles Bissell, guitarist Greg Whelan, bassist/vocalist Kevin Whelan, and drummer Jerry MacDonnell.

For several years they performed using various names until 1993 when they released a 7” single as “The Low”, unaware that in Duluth, Minnesota, there already existed a slowcore group with that name.

Changing their name to the Wrens they submitted “The Low” single to Grass/Dutch East India, who, on the strength of it signed them to a contract. 

In 1994 Grass/Dutch East India released the the Wren’s debut full length, Silver 

which mixed the dream pop of bands like My Bloody Valentine and Chapterhouse with … quirky indie rock.

Their 1996 sophomore album, Secaucus, replaced Silver’s hazy dream pop with

 a direct but slightly slanted rock sound.

If you need a reference, it compares favorably to the music of Archers of Loaf.

Generally well received by the critics it appeared that the band had finally come into its own, but, for the fact, that late in the summer of 1995 Alan Melzter bought Grass/Dutch East India with every intention of moving the label from it’s indie roots towards a more “hit-oriented direction.”

Melzter did offer the Wrens a million-dollar contract with the proviso that they make their music “more radio-friendly,” but when the group balked the label dropped them.

Keeping their days jobs allowed the band to soldier on, recording and releasing their music whenever the opportunity to do so presented itself. What allowed the band to remain viable during this period was that all the band members, except MacDonnell, who moved out in 1996, lived in the same house, turning their dining room into a recording studio.

After four years of work the group’s third album, The Meadowlands, was released by by the band’s longtime friend Cory Brown on his Absolutely Kosher label.

A shambling, sprawling, shifting affair The Meadowlands, like 1996’s  Secaucus, trades in a classic indie rock sound… accessible, but not overtly experimental either.

The album’s first track, “The House That Guilt Built,” opens with the sound of crickets which is followed by the line

It’s been so long since you heard from me

That line along with

“Are you happy?/You got what you want/I’m over it now”

from the album’s second cut, “Happy,”  help to set The Meadowlands generally melancholic tone but the band saves its rock moments for the end of the album,

“Per Second Second,” is

an angular, Pixies-esque bit of punk

while the anthemic “Everyone Chooses Sides” closes out the album.
