Women in rock and Paul Graham - 22:39
This is cool, on Kottke this morning was
a link to an
discussing the problem of there no longer being many female rock bands or
lead singers, compared for example with the mid 90s and talking about some of
the reasons. The cool thing is the article is either written by or from an
interview with Louise Werner of the Brit pop sort of band Sleeper from the
90s. I am quite a fan of Sleeper, I have the albums "The It Girl" and "Smart"
by the group, also back in 1999 I uploaded a bit of a
Louise Werner fan page. As for the
article, I tend (as Jane has noticed often) to listen to and like a lot of female
lead singer based groups (I love Leonardo's Bride music for example) and it is
kind of a shame if there are not as many women in all genres of music.
Hugh brought to my attention today
another really good Paul Graham
essay. This one targeted at the
youth but applicable to anyone, another good read.
