Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know I got around to 
updating the women in punk 1975-1980 list and 
there are some really great bands I've just found 
out about from submissions. 

Below are links to info and YouTube:

Carolyn Crampton from this all-girl band in 
Boulder, who was later in The Varve in SF, wrote 
to me.  She has some great anecdotes about her 
bands on her blog...

They're featured on a compilation of early 
Colorado punk bands, along with the Guys 
(all-girl band from Denver)...
