Make That A Take’s annual festival of punk-rock music is nearly upon us (see back cover) and there are so many exciting bands playing it’s hard to pick just a few, but here’s the ones I’m most psyched to check out, plus a film I can’t wait to see!
So, Which Band Is Your Boyfriend In? – Born out of an IndieGoGo campaign, this film focuses on the experience of being a woman in a band and the everyday sexism that many female musicians still face.
Queequeg’s Coffin – Meg, Jonno, and their sample pad are a two-piece electro-funk experience with a tonne of attitude and a weird retro-futuristic vibe. They’ll be playing on the Saturday.
Fistymuffs – GRSE veterans, and surely familar to regular readers of this zine. Loud, angry, and not afraid to get personal – do not miss!
The Twistettes – Their second album might be a little disappointing, but these sisters are still worth seeing. Show them love and support.
Dream Nails- Their single ‘DIY’ blew my mind recently on the Loud Women album (from the London-based non-profit collective run by Cassie Fox of Guttfull). Just go see them.
