Growing up I was very lucky to have a brother who was five years older then me and new everything about music. Basically all my birthday and Christmas presents were records that he thought I should listen to, not what I would ask for. Lucky for me he introduced me to Crass. I'm not sure how old I was when I first listened to Penis Envy but that album I feel should be the introductory to music to teenage girls everywhere.
Along the years Bikini Kill and Sleater-Kinney became my sing along driving tunes. Corin Tucker up above.
Sleater-Kinney from a show at the Glass House in Pomona, California. Shot in 2002.
Unfortunately Sleater-Kinney went on a indefinite hiatus.
Thankfully Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss have started a new band called Wild Flag. I discovered them on the David Letterman show! I can't wait to see them live.
I also really need to check out/support Crazy Band, I've only heard great things about this band. Jasmin and Jennifer up above, or is it Jennifer and Jasmin? I'm terrible with twins..
