Sexing The Groove- Popular Music and Gender

Edited by Sheila Whitely
Routledge 1997
Pages 245 and 250

We're in the chapter, 'Feminism, Subculture, and Grrrl Power'. They actually quote from our first zine, 'Plague Your Eyes'. Golly.

The middle two are slightly inaccurate histories and discographies (not that we're complaining - it's nice to be acknowledged). But how the heck did they find out what we were up to? Only our families knew about our last two records.

Please let us know if you've seen our name printed somewhere, so we can add to our collection.
