Agreed. I could never figure out why they had British sounding accents.

Gito Gito Hustler (they're on the same label as the Donnas - who I neither liked or disliked)
Tu Seras Terriblement Gentille (Parisian surf trio, hitting the wrong chord once in a while, but it doesn't matter)

Next are bands who had a stray male playing drums or else at one point :
The Slits (plus Steve Beresford in the final year)
Les Calamités (my favorite French band probably)
The Launderettes

Bands only supposed to be all girls :
Thee Headcoatees
The Shangri Las

I'd like to hear some UT but their records are invisible now here; the only thing I heard's from the Nothing Short of Total War compilation.

Without listing bands just because they have only girl members, here are ones that I listen to loads and are/were great bands in their own right. The Runaways would definitely make the top ten most listened to on the gramaphone at Rail Acres.

The Runaways
Girslschool
The Lunachicks
The Bangles

No, they are irritating. Especially when every time I try and play guitar I end up sounding like the fuckers.

In regard to listing groups solely because they were all female.

Based upon the people who listed L7, that seems far from the truth. Emmah was pretty emphatic about liking them, I listed them but qualified it was based entirely upon their live show (I saw them many times in the late '80s and early '90s in Seattle in really small clubs, and they were awesome, which was never really captured on record), and Cantankerous seems unlikely to list anyone based upon that reason.

Cibbo Matto I don't think anyone but me listed, and all I can say is I really like their debut album. It was quite unique at it's time. Their second album was not all female (in fact it features a guy I used to party with in Olympia before he moved to NYC) and it's horrible. So they were better off all-female, for whatever reasons.

Angel'in Heavy Syrup are pretty amazing, especially the fourth album.

Cibo Matto always made my teeth hurt.

There's a japanese Black Metal band that's been around for about six months now whose name I forget, but they're supposed to be quite interesting in their own right. I'll edit when I find their name.

Edit: Gallhammer.

Well that's cleared that one up. Ignore Gallhammer; they're crap.

I just decided to to test T&Bs claim by listening to some stuff on Youtube. And, inevitably, he's right. They are crap. Another Japanese Rock band that I can safely ignore.

fuck me, how did i forget angel'in?!! love them to death.

and yes on that sentiment on cibo matto too, never for the life of me understood their appeal.

the only L7 album i like is bricks are heavy, the rest of what i've heard is constantly mediocre. i'd like to listen to larissa strickland of laughing hyenas' L7 though.

Yeah, I actually like them. Definitely don't listen to them as much as I used to, but that's the same with Nirvana and I still love them. Not that Nirvana and L7 were on the same level at all.
