'I Decide' on BBC6 Music. Can someone tell me more, what should I buy, who are they...love that sound.
Hanna from Bikini Kill is in the band ahhhhhhhh
yeah they're brilliant. first album is 10/10
Not sure how many albums she did previously under that name (without the 'The'). They will come up when you search too, no doubt.
An absolutely brilliant documentary (I guess documentary, but I don't like the term) is The Punk Singer. It's about Kathleen Hanna, her life, her music and her struggle with Lyme Disease. Inevitably a sort of backdrop of other 90s bands and 90s music culture too. It also highlighted her and other strong minded women in indie rock and a brilliant fuck you to all misogynists. It's a must see film. The Julie Ruin play The Koko in December. Do get yourself a ticket. They were brilliant last year. I'm not exactly that old but I was too young to get to Bikini Kill when they were around. Her other band Le Tigre are another band that were amazing (and who I actually did see live a few times.
Anyway, sorry for the long winded reply. But in a few words: definitely do watch The Punk Singer; it'll all make sense.
Damn corrective typing.
