Everyone wants fast easy songs that you can totally shake your booty to. Bangs rule.
This is not my favourite Kinney album, and tomorrow this could very well be One Beat, but I'm in a poppy mood tonight.
This band restored my faith in music, made me feel well good for liking music made by band formed in that decade, imagine. Bedroom dancing delights!
Three cheers for MCR is what I say, and for me being out and proud with my love of 2nd and 3rd wave EMO, this band probably did save my life.
Listening to Mika Miko makes me feel like a punk, like an original 1977 punk like Enid in Ghost World yeah. Sadly they are no more, shitter.
Because the self titled album was released just a little before last decade and because I saw Le Tigre for the first time on the Feminist Sweepstakes tour (I don't know why, I was being stupid not seeing them earlier, I will now refer to anytime I decline seeing a band with a poor excuse as YummyFurGate) and Holly and I started a stage invasion.
When I was younger I only liked songs that were over in 2 minutes and gave me a stitch dancing to them. I got older. I am more of a cynic, but appreciate such delights as this.
In the late 90s, I'd been listening to girl bands, ones on KRS and labels of that ilk, but I hadn't heard a band like The Gossip. Seeing this band live always makes me smile and gives me a stitch. I think I prefer Movement, but this is what got me.
Ok, while I go and cry into my tea about YUMMYFURGATE number 2, you go and point out all the albums I should have put, and check out how those last two record covers are made of felt, for realz!!!
