😀 Thank you for sending this & for your support!
I have heard some new tracks from the album, and they are quite good!
Thank you again!! It’s always a pleasure when I come across artists or bands that I didn’t know about, and since I have a personal bias towards punk and metal it’s doubly awesome when the black women artists I discover are in these types of bands. Thank you thank you thank you!!
EDIT: @gates-of-horn-and-ivory I probably forgot about this since it rarely gets used, but I actually have a submit page for people to drop in media from artists I haven’t featured on this blog yet. Sometimes people use it to promote their own bands, but I set it up both for that and for people to give me stuff I don’t have already! I love submissions, and definitely mind you submitting anything you’d like for the bands you brought to my attention. Thanks!
I have not, you wonderful angel!!!!! Thank you so much!!!
I am glad you were able to find it. Thanks for dropping a note!
Thank you! <3
Thank you so much!
Hey there! It’s Peggy “Lady Bo” Jones. She used to play with Bo Diddley, and still has a solo career going.
I’ve managed to catch a cold, of course.
But I’m pretty epic and brvtal so I’ll probably still go. :3 Will just try not to breathe on anyone.
First thing that came to mind: Shawna Shawnte’s BestfriendGrrrlfriend. Also Kayla Phillips from Bleed The Pigs (screamer for a hardcore band, not quite riot grrrl but still in the punk family), Poly Styrene (the original, X-Ray Spex), Heavy Flow, Dust Angel, Joy Vay from TV Tramps, Replica, Felony Melony from The Objex.
It is seriously a joy to go through my archives pulling stuff up for anyone who wants information, so please please please ask more questions like this, people! Also, reblog if I forgot to mention anyone!
The name isn’t familiar. I’ll check them out. Thank you!
Everytime someone tells me this it means more than you know. Thank you!
Indeed I have! Kayla and her band have been on this blog a few times. Check the tags! 😀
This means so much to me, thank you
Had to dig deep into my archives to find an all-female all-Black band for you, anon! There is NighTraiN: http://blackwomeninrock.tumblr.com/post/50461076664/the-diss-by-nightrain-by-swpaquiet-all-black.
The new configuration of Straight Line Stitch is also worth consideration, as is Judas Priestess. Judas Priestess is a Judas Priest cover band that has a black lead singer. The rest of the band is white, but they are all-female.
Let me know if you need more, and feel free to go through my archives or search on the blog page! ☻♥
EDIT: Forgot about The Tuts, too! Drummer is black, but lead singer is a PoC and the band is completely female.
Thank you anon! 😀
It’s no problem!
Thanks for following this blog and for the compliment! 😀 And it was really a no-brainer to follow another blog that highlights how awesome women musicians can be.
misscegenation replied to your post: I still have to begin to read it, but I’ll surely…
That’s it. I’m ordering it right now!
DO IT! 🙂
Great, thanks! I just finished it a few weeks ago, but I’m dying to know what others have thought of it. Being able to talk about it on here is the next best thing to a book club. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear what you thought!
So true, we’re here! 😀 If you get a chance to see them live DO IT. It will change your life!
rxqueennn said: Ah, that’s fair enough! I know what you mean about it not being groundbreaking but I guess it’s a start 🙂 It makes us realise we’re not the only ones going through those things so it’s more of a comforting thing for me. Its cool youre into hardcore!
Well said. And it’s cool for me too! 😀 I NEVER see black women when I go to shows, though I will usually see at least one other black man. We definitely need to represent!
Missing e’s reblog feature isn’t working for some reason:
rxqueennn said: Really? Aw, that sucks. I seemed to relate to everything in that book. I think it’s because I listen to hardcore, one of the genres she talked about often throughout the book. Made me feel empowered to carry on loving hardcore as much as I do
Yeah, I’m primarily into the hardcore scene as well, and it seemed to me like she talked more about metal and the lack of black metal chicks than anything. I found a lot of the stuff she talked about relatable, I just didn’t find anything in the book groundbreaking. I don’t know why I expected that. I did find her story and experiences valuable though, and would like more women into alternative scenes to share their stories!
I actually just bought a copy for my Kobo e-reader! 🙂
You’re welcome! 🙂
