He said DON'T suck.
I thought this was DiS why has no one said JoFo?...
k, i'm bored of this now
Natasha Khan is the greatest woman in the world.
Oh well, one less person for me to have to fight my way through to her! :D
Fight Like Apes
as a native from ireland, great to see some from england a name check for the excellent fight like apes, may kay singer (the singer, for those who may not know)
I saw them on Saturday as part of Dot to Dot and they were absolutely brilliant. Probably the second best performance of the weekend, after The Mae Shi.
why are people answering this?
"girls that don't suck" jokes. dis you surprise me sometimes...
DO i really need to go on?
a girl in Of Montreal? I might as well throw my CD away.
and most of the ones already mentioned.
v good drummer girl, there's bloomin' loads of good female drummers around though. men be ashamed!
Broken Social Scene
this thread is ridiculous, extremely sexist and pretty fucking insulting too.
It just takes music back to the fucking dark ages , its the kind of shit the NME would come up with.
Is it ironic? i dont know, but well done to Brusma and Errol_George for making moderaterock look like a cunt.
Moderatrock just screams Paul Weller/OCS/Cast ladrock really doesnt it.
Whats really fucking insulting to me is people who try to censor debates like you're doing. Fair play to Brusma and Errol_george who've produced valid examples and disproved the original point.
But posts like this which take ubrage but refuse to counter are utterly offensive, utterly counter-productive to intelligent debate and only serve to restrict free discussion whilst lacking the actual gut to themselves counter the arguments they dislike.
this thread is neither "discussion" nor "debate", and anyone who finds it offensive barely needs to justify their distaste since the main thrust of it is so totally fucking retarded
at best this thread is a "good bands where the bassist has a beard" megapointless list thread. At worst it's a "bands with asian people who don't smell like curry"
it to be a Nirvana reference actually.
a while back when there was a suggestion that women in the industry come up against a patronising and backwards attitude....
Pumpkins. They suck now though.
and Le Tigre in particular, were utter genius. Until their last album, that is.
are a much different proposition. The whole thing's a lot more danceable and fun than Bikini Kill ever were, and there's a whole heap of other influences than just the lo-fi punk rock of Bikini Kill. The second album has a load of Luscious Jackson-esque hiphop songs on it.
I second that, http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=58247656
That this thread was a joke. Even so, it's a pretty shit joke.
c'mon people! There must be SOME out there...
And the Slits if someone hasn't mentioned them already (cannae be arsed scrawling up to find out).
Girls at Our best (immortalised by The Wedding Present when they covered Nowhere Fast on Tommy)
Best band ever.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
I find the fact that the proportion of straight answers to ones questioning the title pretty sad. So most bands with girls in suck? You are a sad sad bunch.
I should really read through before I post stuff...but the ratio of straight answers to ones questioning the title is about 45:1. And that is a sad reflection.
Elastica? apologies if someone's already said em but i couldn't be arsed to read the whole thing. Blondie?
I'd like to think the girl might suck though. You never know- some dinner, some dancing... who knows where it might lead?
Check out The Warmers, they;re really good.
Also, start listening to bands on the basis of the sounds they're making as opposed to who the members are.
and yeah I dont tend to be a fan of that many bands with girls in them, so what? I dont find that a problem, but saying a band is crap purely because they have a female band member is of course stupid
Broken Social Scene
Martha and The Vandellas
oh, hang on... this is the most retarded thread I've ever seen. Why did I feel compelled to reply?
Broken Social Scene
Architecture In Helsinki
The band I was in at school. Oh no wait, we did suck. Disregard.
took this long to come up, what a triumph of a band they were. Truly fantastic voice from Hope, looking forward to her appearance on Massive Attack's new LP.
Oh, and Sleater-Kinney FTW.
PJ Harvey, Bjork, Blondie, The Supremes!
lots of bands with girls don't suck. Lets get this sexist bullshit out of music. Your base assumption that bands with girls in will suck is stupid.
the majority of bands that have girls in suck.
I find it strange that I don't seem to like any music that's supposidly catchy and fun.
Does this make me an old bore?
In fact, I don't know why I put that in the first place. Bye.
..is to act as male fantasies.
My Bloody Valentine
Siouxsie & the Banshees
and billions more.
bands with one-armed drummers? Def Leppard
Siouxsie & The Banshees
Elastica (especially circa 1998/1999)
Galaxie 500 anyone?
The Red Light Sting.
and i can confirm she does not suck!
i beg but she still says no!!
