This is a mix for a friend where I try to introduce and highlight some of the best female fronted punk bands of the past 30 years or so. It is by no means definitive. The whole mix is supposed to show a chronological progression from the late 70's/early 80's to the early 90's/2000's. I think it works, especially considering that I only have 80 minutes to work with. I wanted to put bands like Young Marble Giants on here but because of limited space, I had to focus on the loud and energetic side of punk rock strictly. I wanted to put Blondie, B52's, The Pretenders, Pylon, Elastica, The Kills, and some other bands but again, space was limited. What other bands do you think should be on here? As you can tell the excellent and legendary "Wanna Buy A Bridge" comp was a source of many picks. The more recent "Totally Wired" comp also helped. I thought the title was ingenious at first but then while thinking about it more, I realized that it only helps to further highlight the constraints that women have because of their bodies(and the ability to birth children.) I kept it because I like the fact that sexist punk rockers could be caught off guard by the simple but incredibly true statement. How can you hate the one place where everyone knows they came from? Okay, my logic is not the sharpest now so I'll update this explanation later. I'll be rocking out to this cd in the meantime...

This is a good looking mix, especially considering the limitations you pointed out. Love the Au Pairs, Sleater Kinney, Bikini Kill and Le Tigre songs. Some Erase Errata may have fit nicely.

Lotsa great picks. X, Kleenex/LiLiPUT, Au Pairs, PJ and Sleater-Kinney among my faves.

For some possibly subconscious chauvinistic reason I seldom put female fronted bands on my mixes. But you hit some of my faves here, namely the Avengers, Joan Jett and X. Penetration would have fit in here nicely - I was just tracking my albums by them today while making my vinyl mix. And the title is perfect! Great job all around.

I had no idea that the raincoats did a cover of Lola-thanx for the enlightenment. Am dissappointed in self that I seem to only be familiar with the bands you left off this mix. I'd be very willing to trade you for a copy of this.

Nice mix you've created. If you'd like, perhaps we could trade?
