Man’s weakness towards animal abilities pushes him to give animal names to other people, who have more developed abilities.
How it sounds
As Alternative Rock and Indie Rock, but a little baggier and with several doses of Punk. All this always with female vocals.
Why listen to it
Because girls have more passion when they sing.
Because the passion did not have such continuity.
The bands of the genre quickly deteriorated, it was difficult to keep up and they probably could not keep up in a male-dominated rock world.
Where we meet it
In the USA (West Coast)
When did it start
The early ‘90s
Who are the pioneers
The term came from a joke by Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore.
Practically, he wanted to describe the multitude of Rock bands with female vocals, but also with female musicians, that appeared at that time.
The music press, without any sense of humor and no perception of it, confused it with the Riot Grrrl of the same era and thus the term was introduced.
You must listen
4 Non Blondes, Babes in Toyland, That Dog, Hole, Red Aunts, Stone Fox.
Days of glory
In the early 1990s, where bands with pretty girls holding guitars and microphones were loved by MTV.
It is worth noting that the majority of the video clips were blockbusters.
The system (as usual) chewed and spat on them, so simply.
A few bands released more than 3 works, proving that another wave became a tool of showbiz and the music industry.
What is it confused with
With Alternative and Punk Rock, sometimes with Indie Pop
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Pretty girls play Rock and look angry, but they are not.
