Not sure why, but I’ve been on a big Mary’s Danish kick lately, and there is limited postable content on the net, so you get the classics. Other great tunes, if you can find them, are Julie’s Blanket, Killjoy, and O Lonely Soul…, which I’d post if I could, but thems the breaks.
Saw them at UCR during my freshman year. They played at the Barn somewhat regularly, which at the time had a sort of seedy bar feel, but apparently is now a “casual dining location“. At least it’s still there. Good place to see a show, or to drink before going to see a show at the Rec Center. I think Cracker played there a few times while I was in school. Dramarama as well.
I don’t what it is about female fronted rock acts, but they seem to deliver a ton of energy in their performances. Throwing Muses comes to mind, as do the Raveonettes, and the Peels. I would use a “see them live” tag, but they’ve been broken up for over ten years. Anyway, these guys were great, and they got totally scewed by their record company. I’m not lying, that’s a pretty interesting article if you have the time to read it. Enjoy:
