I also think Pascale summed it up pretty well, though
I think he didn't notice the smiley emoticon in yr
post and was thus his wording was perhaps a bit more
strong then need be! I don't think the name really
needs to be changed...I mean, the thrust of this list
is still the same and there's sort of an understanding
that people with that interest may also be interested
in some other related artists. Typical Girls can
always evolve into a sort-of post-punk list, but that
may shift the emphasis a bit, imagine a world where
people go on and on about obscure Hyped2Death type
bands...I may eventually make an Acute message board
for that in either case!
