Hello everyone! :) I don't know if I ever introduced myself or not, but here is my intro. My name is Greta and I am 22 years old. I join ANYTHING relating to riot grrrl on LJ. I have a riot grrrl site: http://riotgrrrl.girlsvomitcandy.com but it is no more. I still have the site, but it is somewhere else. If you want to talk riot grrrl, female bands, and more, then go here: http://femalebands.proboards54.com/ I know this community is new, but I hope it gets more members soon!

I also have a riot grrl message board located here: http://riotgrrl.proboards50.com

♥ Would anybody be interested in a scheme that benefits everybodies Music Collection, by that I mean a snail mail exchange of copied CDs to expand your musical knowledge, or just gain copies of those albums/songs you lack?

♥ This idea obviously originated from my need for "The Woods" Which I can not currently afford.

Kathleen Hanna in Sonic Youth video [04 Aug 2005|04:09pm]

butterflyburn
My guitarist lent me a DVD of all Sonic Youth's videos called CORPORATE GHOST (which has a very cool cover). Most of the videos are embarassingly 80s but Bull In The Heather has Kathleen Hanna in it!! And better still...it has a commentary by Kathleen Hanna!

She was like, (in thick americal drawl) 'I remember I couldn't afford my rent for the month and Sonic Youth asked me to appear in their video. At that time there was a lot of criticism of my band, either we were too political or not political enough, but hell, I had to pay that month's rent, and I wasn't gonna be all like, "NO. I won't be in your video. I'm TOO COOL." I mean, who's too cool for Sonic Youth?'

Anyway she says it in a very cool way. She mainly dances around and attacks Thurston.

♥ Right, imagine this, we have a venue, a DJ, there's a pretty bit crowd.

♥ All you have to do is request a song..

♥ I admit this is a Riot grrrl meme, but what the Hell

♥ REQUEST FIVE SONGS YOU WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ON A NIGHT OUT.

♥ *Points at Sixdaysober* Mr Drummer boy has volunteered to assist in organising a night of 'Riot Grrrl', although he's sketchy on what Riot Grrrl is, so this may end up being an evening of female rock (Although a few bands that I've seen with him verge on triphop, which is also excellent) We know the Midlands is somewhat lacking in Riot Grrrl talent, but it's worth a try.

♥ Which sounds just as good to me. I know a few of you are associated with this kind of West Midlands group, so if you have any contributions to make feel free to post.

♥ Having no experience with such things myself it'd be lovely to have it placed in the hands of a responsible adult.

[ mood | Curious ]

Bored at work, browsing Riot Grrl websites and found what I think it a pretty good summary, although I’m racking my brains trying to think of other Influential bands that aren’t new.Collapse )

♥ Oh, and for those of you not a member of Riotgrrluk and have an interest in quizzing bands

Heartbreak [10 Jul 2005|01:30am]

My friend in London just sent me Andrea Dworkin's memoirs to read in the post. The Political Memoir of a Feminist Militant. Yay! W00p! Etc. When I move I will have a *STUDY*, and in it, I will study good and hard, the writings of great ladies, and possibly forge and enrich some kind of concrete world view, something which I currently lack. The world is looking foggy from where I sit.

He also sent me some films on DVD, including 'A Hole In My Heart' by Lukas Moodysson which I am looking forward to watching, but will probably need to have a hanky to hand, to say the least. Lilja 4-Ever was bad enough.

Also, habe ich ein neues Atwood book wot I haven't read, entitled 'life before man'. I have no idea what that will be like. I have her book on writing too which I haven't finished yet, and Gender Trouble which is horribly hard going but I will attempt to wade through it at some point, and oh shit a poetry anthology Kraige gave me for Christmas which I haven't picked up in a while. As I said though - a study will I have - and study will I do. And oh, the music I will download on that broadband line!

PS. REMEMBER - GIG NEXT FRIDAY - SCRUFFY MURHPYS - BE THERE OR BE OBECTIFIED IN QUADRILATERAL FORM.

[ mood | creative ]

Hello, just joined this community! I enquired a couple of months ago about the grrl scene or lack of in the Midlands, and am very glad to see this little community has popped up! I'm moving to Birmingham in September (for Uni), so will be good to hear from like-minded people in the area.
