that you like, are there any?
That thread has ot me thinking deep down im a massive sexist.
and probably back up your point on how females are represented. I can't think of any successful female musicians that aren't attractive, this is obviously not the case with males and it makes me think that looks are an important obstacle for sucess for female musicians.
I think that with bands with boys in. Like, if I went to see them live, I'd notice if one of them was hot. I wouldn't like a band because of it if they were rubbish, or like a good band any more because of it. But I'd definitely notice!
the only man in a band I really properly really really fancy is Malkmus. But he is also a musical god, so that's ok.
most times when I first listen to someone I don't even know what they look like, it is only after reflecting due to that thread that I realised most indie girl musicians are typically attractive, and wondered whether this means that indie musician women who arrent typically attractive are excluded, I phrased it badly and now look like a massive sexist.
I'm trying to think now.
that springs to mind.....
I think she's pretty. She always has such nice clothes and looks cute. And loads of people fancy her. Yeah, she's fat, but I don't think she's totally unattractive.
Actually, most people are attractive really, aren't they? Except nasty people.
othertimes she genuinely grosses me out, thinking about her poor heart
of nasty people, but I really, really don't see that Beth Ditto is attractive.
I also dislike The Gossip's music, but the two are unrelated
misguided feminist ideals and morbid obesity do not an attractive lady make. Don't mind her band though.
She's not just 'fat', plenty of people are a bit big but she is unhealthily so
Pixies, Breeders, Amps and so, though not soloe: very successful.
Not the prettiest, but she can have my heart anyday.
she was the actual hottest woman in history
She could have been a disgruntled, quadriplegic savant and still been the the hottest.
in a... nice way?
and your feminist ideals.
any more than that would just be greedy.
'no! i can't think of any! i'm a massive sexist!' type erm.
but an 'OMGWTFETC?' type erm.
I just thought I should clarify.
your really bizarelly-phrased initial post lead to confusion.
the manly one in le tigre?
erm, kd lang... lolzzzz. I don't really like any of them.
most female musicians that come to mind (Cat Power, Joanna Newsom, that-one-in-the-veils, Karin from the knife, Kristin Hersh, Kate Bush, Tina Weymouth,...) are really attractive, but then again, maybe they're attractive because they're, for the most part, mega-cool musicians. I mean, a lot of them might be considered sort of Plain Janes without the added mystique and zillions of cool points that being a really good musician gives you.
like Khaela Maricich, I don't think I would normally find her that attractive but at the blow gig I went to she seemed like the most attractive person in the world
i think it was a mixture of her all white clothes, and dancing, and between songs banter, and general awesomeness
is she gay though?
pretty much every song is about how she fancies a boy, so I'd doubt she was gay. Either that she is the indie Will Young.
the audience was made up exclusively of lesbians + me and my friends.
i really really wanna marry her, and live with her forever, in Portland Oregon...
in brighton she said how parenthesis was written after picking up a girl (who latter went back to her boyfriend) and she was on tour with her girlfriend. presumably the woman controling the music on a laptop.
i would be banging my head against it right now.
i've been misunderstood :(
genuinely no idea.
the only thing i can see this thread as meaning are:
"i find all women who make music attractive"
"the music industry is sexist and only hot women are allowed any success"
what's the extra meaning that everyone's being prissy about?
people buy Katie Melua records...
but you know, she is (was) also massivley attractive at the same time, aswell, so...

are automatically attractive.
I don't think there is such a thing as attractive in music. Music is music. I don't find PJ Harvey attractive or Kim Deal or Kim Gordon or Patti Smith or probably lots of others I can't think of right now. It's not something I've ever thought of before.
I also can't think of any bands I like just because I fancy one of the members. Apart from Los Campesinos. If they didn't have a hot violin player I'd hate them.
if you send me a copy of that Kenickie CD!
how could you, gareth?
dear dan_thw, if he won't copy whatever kenickie thing it is, i will send you a cd. AND you can still have a crush on him.
now, you're like, spiritless, or something. deader than dead.
utterly non-existent then. no ashes, no decomposed stuff, no NOTHING. there.
like she'd be experimental and into all sorts of stuff, though?
it's on your blog, right? ha!
Patti Smith (back in't day), PJ Harvey, the girl from the Blow should all not be that attractive. i don't think the average lad on the street would find them whatsoever hottt, but i am quite spectacularly in love with all three of them.
is this because of the music they make, or because i have weird taste in girls? i dunno, probably a mixture of the two....
saying Kim Deal isn't fit. I used to love that woman so, so much. And I had a little pang of lust again at Reading last year when she lit a cigarette on stage, even if she is now a 50 year-old heroin junkie with a face like a decomposing raggy doll.
I love her. This may largely be because I love her choons and she smokes.
Judee Sill is my favourite female musician of all time, and she was fairly plain.
It's easier to point it out when untalented female musicians get a deal cos of their face and it annoys me as much as any, but there are just as many cynical reasons for male musicians to get deals, so I guess it evens out
lady isn't particularly pleasing attractive. belting voice mind.
So my vision is clouded.
are hardly super models, they just look like your average person.
or 'cos there's something sexy and sensual about someone playing an instrument or making music so you're more likely to fancy someone who does it?
polly Harvey is more attractive because of the music she makes. One of my favourite female musicians is Abra Moore from austin texas and she is bizarre looking but has a really great voice and writes some fantastic songs from dawsons creek style baladeering to quite creepy close to the bone stuff, it's just wrong to judge her on anything but the music
She divides my male friends in opinion.
That's the most male post I've ever made. I'm not proud.
I don't know... I don't think she's stunning, but she's got something about her....
...two of them?
one. The one that plays guitar.
'are there any genuinely unpleasant looking female musicians you can name' there are clearly some butt ugly blokes in bands. But are there any similarly unattractive women?
And does this mean there's some deep rooted unfairness in the music industry where an ugly woman couldn't have her talent recognised.
I don't think anyone's saying people 'only like XX band because they find the members attractive'.
I think it's a valid question.
I thought it was established that meg white was indeed 'hot'?
