Re: (TV) Sleater-Kinney
unfortunately you'd be hard pressed to hear any of these influences (well, i don't
know helium, so maybe?) in S-K's songs.
there's a bit of a rough trade records ca. 78-79 sound to their lead guitarist's
lines, tho brownstein's licks are almost martial-sounding, like early paul weller
at his worst.
they do drop alotta hip names tho.
but if it isn't obvious already, i find S-K currently the most overrated rock &
roll group out there.
they're ok, but nothing more.
(plus they live in my current home city of choice & the overexposure is driving me
