which d'you prefer
definitely. Not that I dislike Bikini Kill at all, but between the two I'd go for Huggy Bear every time.
a lot more variation on songs, a lot poppier and the same time savage! Apart from a few BK songs I never really liked them as much...
but Bikini Kill because Rebel Girl is one of the best singles of the 90s
cos i dont really like girls
ditto why polvo > sonic youth
I thought you meant who would win in a fight.
would win in a fight
But Kathleen Hanna wins overall.
I still rate the likes of L7, 7 Year Bitch and even Babes in Toyland over either of them.
Fuck it, Hole too.
L7 were great live and great on record.
Huggy Bear were a shambolic mess live (and not even in that 'good' way) and a joke on record.
On record they were the best punk band of the '90s.
L7 were completely one-dimensional, plodding indie-disco fodder responsible for one of the worst songs I've ever heard (Andre). They would have been a riot to drink with though.
'Down in West Hollywoooooooooood.....'...arrrgh, I'm getting flashbacks!
more fun but total fakers (read the riot grrrl book).
overall - bikini kill
huggy bear needed a lot less input from chris, the einar orn of riot grrrl. IMO.
who sung Dissthentic Penetration and Pansy Twist?
if so...how...how can you want less of him?
and I like that but that joint album with bikini kill is utter utter utter utter turd. Also they made sexuality very unsexual if that makes any sense. Saw them support Pavement and yes they were better than said Yank rubbish.
Listen to it!!
You probably knew that already though, right?
and my mum wouldn't let me go coz it was a school night. Apparently here was a riot and everything - Bikini Kill refused to play until all the boys went to the back and let the girls have the moshpit. I was not happy with my mum.
i like bikini kill, but they're really overrated. Huggy Bear are quite the opposite.
Kathleen Hanna's voice grates a bit. The Singles compilation is awesome though, all 20 minutes of it.
I listened to the Best of L7: The Slash Years the other day, and came to the conclusion they had about 3 good songs. Maybe there's some hidden gems in amongst the albums the best of was cribbed from but i doubt it.
