Surfer Grrrls

The Runaways

Don't you just love a kick-ass girl group? From The Slits and The Raincoats to Bikini kill and Luscious Jackson, there has always been female-centric punk rock to be found on my playlist. A few of my more recent band discoveries share some things in common other than just being super talented rock 'n' roll gals.

Wicked names:
Vivian Girls (Cassie Ramone, Kickball Katy, Frankie Rose)

Dum Dum Girls (Dee Dee, Jules, Bambi)

Best Coast (Bethany Consentino)

Awesome sound:

60s girl-group surf harmonies layered over lo-fi punk guitar fuzz.

'Blissed out buzz-saw', 'Easy Breezy'

Fierce style:

Shorts, tights, mini-dresses, tattoos, hair dye, top knots.

Brooklyn's Vivian Girls

LA's Dum Dum Girls

Dee Dee Dum Dum

This song is seriously stuck in my head. Listen or lose out!
