Let's talk about Women, "Public Strain"

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

What became of her? She lived, as she liked to say, off the kindness of gentlemen. I assume she’s dead.

is this like that "Rule 34" thing for where there is always porn of something on the internet, except it's like Rule 35 - there is always an embarrassing explainer vlog of something?

They come from Calgary, Canada, a place that the band has described as a "cold wintery place"
lol, can we have a moratorium on music writers/commentators talking about calgary?

shades of Ian Cohen c. the s/t review on p4k:
It’s music that works very, very hard to express a perverse hometown pride you often see used to sell spring water or thermal outerwear —you might not want to brave Calgary’s bleak winters, but the way Viet Cong captures its forbidding chill and placid, sprawling beauty sure make it seem like a good place to be a post-punk band.

woah i didn't see this bandcamp interview. this is the first time pat has spoken about women since they broke up, right?

weird

https://daily.bandcamp.com/2018/03/06/p ... s-feature/

Cindy Lee was directly born, for better or worse, from the wreckage of Women. Following a well-reported onstage conflict at a show in 2010 on Vancouver Island, the band dissolved. Flegel says he had a “mental shift,” hopping out of the van in nearby Vancouver and refusing to get back in. “It was really ugly,” he shrugs. “Mike [Wallace], who was the drummer [in Women], stayed behind and babysat me. He didn’t even know what to do with me.” It was around this time that Flegel started dressing in drag. “I just had this conviction,” he says. “Initially, that had nothing to do with music. Fast-forward a couple years, I thought I would combine it with the music I was doing.”

It can be hard to not be cynical towards bands that are clearly drawing a lot of influence from Women, but every now and then I still discover bands that manage to write something in the vein that sounds fresh. Anyway. I've been lurking this thread for years and I finally figured I'd share something.





Here's my list of Women bands that I've built up. Am I missing any obvious ones?
  • Telstar Drugs
  • Viet Cong
  • Cindy Lee
  • The Diet
  • Fels Naptha (/Phils Napsack)
  • Dories
  • The Hecks
  • Jock Gang
  • (Some) Chad VanGaalen
  • Gretchen
  • Omni
  • Wint
  • Freak Heat Waves
  • Each Other
  • Faux Fur
  • Androgynous Mind
  • Fountain
  • Painted Fruit
  • Mono No Aware
  • Corridor
  • Participation
  • Marbled Eye
  • Hellier Ulysses

Here's my list of bands under the Women umbrella. Let me know if I'm missing any:
  • Telstar Drugs
  • Viet Cong
  • Cindy Lee
  • The Diet
  • Fels Naptha (/Phils Napsack)
  • Dories
  • The Hecks
  • Jock Gang
  • (Some) Chad VanGaalen
  • Gretchen
  • Omni
  • Freak Heat Waves
  • Each Other
  • Faux Fur
  • Hellier Ulysses


I would add these two. For a while you could go on tour in Canada and there would be one of these bands at every show. We used to call it "FLEGEL ROCK"
[list]
[*]WHIMM
[*]Fake Palms

I put out the Whimm LP recently on Pleasence, sounds very Public Strain at times, and Pat has even played guitar for WHIMM a few times recently.


Also the first Fake Palms LP on BUZZ is v. Women
