> ***Now, I need short blurbs from YOU dear listmembers.***
> Here are some examples (from Bobby Moore) to help you get started:
> --------------------------------------------------------------
> Singles and Sessions- 1979-1981- Delta 5
> Hailing from the Leeds art school scene that also produced Gang of Four
> and The Mekons, Delta 5 was a funky, feminist-minded group that
> features more males than females. With two bass players and songs like
> the often-covered "Mind Your Own Business" and "You", Delta 5 stand out
> as one of the best from a scene that featured several female-friendly
> bands.
> --------------------------------------------------------------
> Germ Free Adolescents- Xray Spex
> While I think of The Slits as being the best from the punk era, The
> Xray Spex were the first as far as getting media attention and
> releasing a single.
> Germ Free Adolescents might be a bit repetitive with its constant theme
> of consumerism, but it is to this day one of the most unique sounding
> albums ever released.
> --------------------------------------------------------------
> The Raincoats s/t
> This one might not be as easy to find as the other albums on this list,
> but if all else fails check the Rough Trade Store online.
> If I had to pick a favorite band, it would be The Raincoats. Their
> self-titled debut is a great introduction to a band that was among the
> best, most clever, artsiest, and at times weirdest of the post-punk
> bands.
>> From a memorable cover of "Lola" to "The Void", which was later covered
> by Hole, this is one of the best "girls that rock" albums you are going
> to find.
> --------------------------------------------------------------
> Also, I enjoy recommendations that say things like "Here are the records  
> I wish someone recommended to me when I was 13" (from Theresa Meire).
> If I have to nominate people, I will!
