Over the past ten or so years, I've gotten into a number of both all female bands and female fronted bands, along with a few female artists, and I would just like to know which ones are your favorites. This can include the whole history of rock'n'roll, from Wanda Jackson to the Shangri Las to Janis Joplin to the Runaways, etc.
Here are my favorites, in order of preference...
Manda and the Marbles
The Cocktail Slippers
Les Hell on Heels
The Gore Gore Girls
Rose Elinore Dougall (Former Pipette)

Ok. I'm trying to get my head around your logic here. Somehow you find my comments about deepening this thread to be the worst kind of chauvinism and then seconds later you explain that when one talks about female artists the things that come to mind are " ...glamour, beauty, long blonde hair..." - and then in the next sentence you refer to "Chix with guitars"!! I really don't want to waste my time in a back and forth with you so I would just recommend that you read my first post above once again very slowly. I don't feel the need to convince you on my views on women in music. Anyone who knows my background and my current band, for that matter, will immediately see how ludicrous your statement about my ideas toward women is. Lastly, it's my job to moderate these forums. We try to give you guys a lot of freedom to post what you want as you like, but when things are getting stale or boring sometimes we need to give a thread a little boost; raise the bar. That's all I was attempting to do here.
This is going very off-track here.....I never deliberately posted female artists who were wholly and exclusively beautiful women, but they happened to be beautiful woman, that's all. I totally love PJ Harvey like I love the Gore Gore Girls. On the contrary, many people love Lady Gaga, but I don't dig her AND HER MUSIC at all....the whole Gaga thing stinks. I hope none of you dig Lady Gaga...remember she's considered a beautiful lady. There ya go!!:):)
you tell em, Gringo!
