(NOW WITH HELLA UPDATES AND FIXED LINKS)

Losing interest in male fronted bands/anything men do in general so I’ve been making a point of searching for music/things done by non-men, especially queers. It’s sad I feel I have to go looking ‘cause everything is so male dominated - whether it’s music or art or anything that interests me. I feel more and more adverse to things created from an all male perspective as it doesn’t speak to me and I don’t really care anymore either after too much of the information I processed over a life time being controlled by men. This even goes for the music I throw myself around pits to. Plus powerful, pissed off non-bro vocals feel like they’re coming from a place in my guts when I listen to them.

I compiled a little list of some of my favourite female fronted and queer/feminist/trans* inclusive bands for Alexi but I thought I’d post it here because I want more suggestions. I need more heavy trans*/queer bands plz.. Also while female fronted is a good start, bands without any cis/straight dudes at all would also be good to support.

British-Somali songwriter, feminist, and musician Marianne Joan Elliott-Said, also known by her stage name Poly Styrene, is most notably known for being the founder of punk rock band X-Ray Spex.

She was born in Bromley, London, and ran away from home at the age of 15 with just £3 in her pocket, hitchhiking from one music festival to another. This adventure ended when she stepped on a rusty nail while bathing in a stream and had to be treated for septicaemia.

After seeing the Sex Pistols performance at the Pier Pavillion Hastings on her 19th birthday she thought that anyone could do what they were doing and so decided to form her own Punk Rock band, putting an ad in the paper calling for ‘young punx who want to stick it together’, and that was the beginning of X-Ray Spex. She eventually became a passionate feminist and posted a blog dedicated to women’s rights and defense of women.

She was described by Billboard as the “archetype for the modern-day feminist punk”; because she wore dental braces, stood against the typical sex object female of 1970’s rock star, sported a gaudy Dayglo wardrobe, and was of mixed race. She was “one of the least conventional front-persons in rock history, male or female”.

Needless to say, she was a total bad ass.
