it'd be a bad thing not to have a riot grrrl thread.

It sure would.

I wish there were some better Huggy Bear clips on Youtube.

There's a new book coming out in November. It's got it's own (rather painful) myspace page.

Yes, they're all pretty lousy.

I'm sure you've seen these?

I'm listening to Partyline, Alison Bratmobile's 'new' band- they're fucking great

not a million miles from the later Bratmobile stuff but fresh enough and attitoodinal enough to sound very much like themselves

I saw Bratmobile in Brighton some years back, they were awesome, Alison was an inspiration- pulling cartwheels, gogo dancing, pogoing, getting amongst the audience and Molly and Jen weren't so tardy either

anyhoo, I'd really like to see Partyline over here in the UK... oh and Spider and the Webs too

I still have to bring that video up to Nottingham to show you, don't I, Sam? The one with Huggy Bear and Bikini Kill and all that caper

That is a fucking great album - have you got the Girls With Glasses EP too? I keep meaning to order that up.

Partyline came over in April, they played at least 3 dates that i should have gone too.. Unfortunately, the first clashed with indietracks 1, the second clashed with my indietracks 1 hangover/general weariness and the 3rd was in Brighton - but it was with Shrag supporting i believe - and, well, that was in Brighton so it was never going to happen.

I saw Bratmobile twice i think, once at the Highbury Garage when Ladies, Women and girls came out, Comet Gain supported - which, you know, is always going to get my ass through the door - Alison spent the whole of Comet Gain's set dancing down the front and taking random pics of the audience, then just tore the roof off the Garage. The 2nd time was at the Underworld about a year later, Mika Bomb supported that night, who were just fantastic around then, you just can't top Alison's boundless energy though, she's a fucking star.

I don't think so, didn't the drummer get really ill and have to have his leg(s) amputated or something?

It doesn't get much more rock 'n' roll than that.

Mika Bomb: they always had to go one better than Def Leppard.

It was both legs, just below the knee, they're probably in a field near Sheffield somewhere.

That does make drumming hard, I imagine. No amount of complicated syn-drum fandango can replace two legs.

TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.

Have you tried it? go on, cut your legs off, see what difference it makes, we can always staple them back on if it doesnt work out.

Can I practice on my hair first? The last time I cut my legs off my Mum wouldn't let me listen to my Free Kitten records for a month.

One of my lecturers at university is the girlfriend of (I think) the singer of the raincoats. She manages them also, and is releasing a book of docu photography from way back in their heyday soon. I only just found this out, even though I have been there for two years. I'm resisting the urge to get all fangirl on her.

I am still a riot grrl at heart.

What? What? No they weren't, they were SHIT. That singer woman sounded like a severely mentally retarded three year old. In a bad way.
