Now Nirvana went on to create some awesome albums, which L7 never did, but they really are both bands from the same scene who made cool music that mixed punk and metal before that stuff got labelled grunge and all.

As far as mediocre bands from that scene there's Seven Year Bitch, and for outright bad there's Dickless, but L7 were a great live act.

the divsion of opinion on Sleater-Kinney always amazes me

Toliet & Bowels is a good example, i know for a fact he thinks the Hot Rock is one his top 50 all time albums (also one where Corin little less "oppressive" i suppose) yet loses him in the follow up All Hand on the Bad One, although i am not sure his opinion on One Beat or the Woods

I've never understood why anyone would either love or hate them. I saw them so many times at shows and parties in Oly when they were one of many bands on the bill and I always thought they were o.k., but nothing special. I honestly think both Excuse 17 and Heavens to Betsy were significantly better bands. When suddenly S-K were being tromped around as the saviors of rock, it was so patently ridiculous. Even so, they were never really horrible, just incredibly overrated.

Having expressed my hatred for S-K numerous times in the past, I suppose I agree with the rationality of this statement. They really were just overrated. I personally hated them because of their self-proclaimed fem-political undertones, but that's me.

Time for me to play my "shitealiciously rubbish music taste" wank card - I like Gallhammer. I saw them live last September and thought they kicked ass.

Cantanky - re the Slits cover for "Cut" - apparently Budgie had already left the Slits by the time they came to do the cover shot for that. Well, that's his story anyway...

The Voodoo Queens were pretty great the first time I saw them (at the White Horse in Hamsptead) - good, sassy all-female garage punk. Tis a shame they soon turned into a godawful pop-metal outfit.

re S-K^^I'm definitely in the 'love 'em to bits' camp. Hot Rock, Dig Me Out and All Hands ... are stupendously good. 'The Swimmer' and 'Jenny' are two tracks that I regularly turn to.

I liked Sleater-Kinney when I saw 'em live in 2000 - not often you get a proper "indie" rock band that actually kicks out the jams so well.

Replace 'my favourite' with 'the greatest'. We're talking about a basic fact here, not an opinion.

I think what people are overlooking here is the goddamn walking scientific breakthrough they represent: successful hybridization of human and goat vocal chord DNA.

i really don't think sleater-kinney were very consistent, and they were certainly not one of the best bands of the 90's.

the guitar intro to "dig me out" the song is still one of my favorite moments in music, ever.
