Currently migrating from Tumblr to WordPress

Hi there! The blog is in the process of being moved from Tumblr to WordPress. Some posts may look extremely out of wack as a result. Please bear with us while things get set up and cleaned up. Thanks!

EDIT: Some posts lost their attribution in the import process. If you see something that’s yours and would like to be credited for it, please email jaleesa@blackwomeninrock.info with the link in question, and we will fix it for you. Thanks!

EDIT (11/11/2016): Migration is complete as of today. Some posts that are on the Tumblr version of the blog weren’t uploaded here — they either were off-topic, were duplicates, or were hard to organize because of the loss of attribution. Enjoy the content going forward, and thanks for sticking by us!

Norma-Jean Wofford

So, I just realized that Bo Diddley actually had two different female guitarists in his band. Peggy Jones (Lady Bo) who has been featured on this blog, and Norma-Jean Wofford, who replaced Lady Bo until Lady Bo returned to the band in 1970.

The two often get tagged as one another, even to the point that a Google search for Norma-Jean returns images of Lady Bo, which really sucks besides making things confusing.

New album from The Tuts – “Update Your Brain”

Following on the heels of several previous singles and EPs, @thetuts have finally given us a full-length album – Update Your Brain. This LP does NOT disappoint; It is the same high-powered punk pop you’ve come to expect (and love!) from this band. The album’s sound is sleek and polished, and grrl power oozes on every single track.

A couple of old faves have been re-recorded for the new album (”Dump Your Boyfriend” and “I Call You Up”), and they mix in well with all of the new songs like “1982″ and “Let Go Of The Past”. Full warning – this album will have you dancing and will also leave you wanting more. Pick it up today!
