    Default The Strange Magic of: L7

    Right there, at the junction of the Riot Grrrl movement, Grunge, and Punk, early 1990s, was the all-woman band L7. The quartet of Donita Sparks (G,V), Suzi Gardner (G), Jennifer Finch (B), and Demetra Plakas (D) laid down some of the most huge, ponderous riffs in rock. I previously suggested the song American Society, from their album Smell the Magic as a great mind-clearer while driving home after a rough day at work. Here the Mistresses of Mayhem offer Pretend We're Dead, from Bricks are Heavy. Demetra Plakas, the drummer, is clearly having a great time. And you know that serious issues of art and culture are being addressed when the lead singer of any group begins to remove their pants....

    Yes, their appearance on UK television was a talking point at my local watering hole for some days to come, as I recall (along with the likes of Iggy Pop's transparent plastic trousers on The White Room and Jarvis Cocker's idiot-dance protest against Michael Jackson's toe-curling 'Earth Song' at the BRIT Awards). Happy days.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Here are the grrrls singing their paean of praise for American Society. As is the case for all Strange Magic selections, it is/they are meant to be played loud...
