When in the late 70s a british girl by the name of Jody Turner took her admiration of the very successful RUNAWAYS, it took but a day to start a band of her own, recruiting her sister Julie as member number two. This was the birth of ROCK GODDESS...

So it’s no surprise that when rock impresario Kim Fowley tried to replicate the success of his all-girl band The Runaways with another all-girl ensemble, the results fizzled instead of sizzled.That’s a shame because the group in question, The Orchids, released a pretty good album in 1980. The self-titled release eschews The Runaways overdrive sound in favor of girl-group melodicism and snappy new wave tempos. Producer Fowley (who also takes credit as “director”) wrote or co-wrote almost all the songs on this LP, and while there are no flashes of brilliance, it’s consistently listenable and enjoyable.

25 Mar 2011, 03:10 by SoapMagicI shall divide the artists that I'm interested in into "female singer-songwriters and female-fronted bands" (regardless of genres), "indie/alternative rock", and "miscellaneous". Some of these artists are already in my library, but the amount of plays are less than 100, so they qualify. I will continually add to the list and remove artists as I progress.
Female Singer-Songwriters and Female-Fronted Bands
She & Him
Evelyn Evelyn (Amanda Palmer's side project that I've yet to listen to)
Siouxsie and the Banshees
Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks years)
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows

While I have always liked Tom Jones, I have never really given his post 1980 albums much thought. He has always attached himself to whatever musical movement was hip at the time, from dance, to R&B, to Hip-Hop, with mostly disastrous results. However, when I read that he was going to be recording with Ethan Johns for this album, I felt a glimmer of hope. Like the Joe Cocker album Johns produced a few years back, Praise & Blame is a rootsy affair, with religious undertones. In my view, it is easily the best Tom Jones album released in my lifetime.

19. Weezer - Hurley
Sometimes I don't know what to think about Weezer. One one hand they released some of the best power pop records of the 90s, and then on the other, they have turned themselves into the alternative version of Smash Mouth in more recent years. However, I still keep buying their new records hoping they will go back to what they do best. …
