It’s All Rock & Roll to Me – Part 2

rock n roll

 

I mentioned yesterday that I have days at work when I barely do more than turn on my computer, but then there are those days when I’m in front of it for 8 to 10 hours. BMFBV1D1 & BMFBV1D2 are my soundtracks for days like that.

There is a little of something here for just about every musical taste so Enjoy!

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.

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.

Bedhead Get a Box Set

Ah! Tis’ the season, a season marked by the arrival of the box set, the deluxe reissue and the multi-disc release and this year is no exception.

There are deluxe reissues of Led Zeppelin’s first five albums, all seven of Sleater-Kinney’s CDs on vinyl, a 40th anniversary box set for “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” multi-disc releases from both David Bowie and Joni Mitchell, and not one, but two, multi-disc releases from Wilco and (the alleged) last release ever from the elder statesman of British Art-rock, Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine, Matching Mole).

However, this holiday season’s most interesting and most unexpected box set has to be the one devoted to Texas slow core pioneers Bedhead.

Bedhead 1992 – 1998 encompasses the group’s

 

complete studio recordings… Every cymbal crash, guitar brush, and whisper, across five LPs or four compact discs. Deluxe box includes WhatFunLifeWas, Beheaded, Transaction De Novo, and an additional disc overflowing with singles, EPs, and outtakes, alongside a perfect bound book dissecting the quintet’s nervous slouch through the ’90s

 

I originally wrote about Bedhead in 2006 and at that time the thought that this semi-obscure 90’s band merited a box set never crossed my mind. Well the good folks at Numero Group thought differently.

So if you are giving the “Gift of Music” this Christmas Bedhead 1992 – 1998 could be the perfect gift for that discerning or difficult “record” collector on your list. It also makes a perfect gift for yourself.

Undecided… the links on my original 2006 post  have been refreshed.
