Lesbian Rock

OK, I know it's not called Lesbian Rock, but what would you categorise music from the Indigo Girls, Melissa Etherige, Ani DiFranco, Bonnie McKee, Sarah McLachlan and the like?

I'm becoming a big fan of the Indigo Girls. Especially songs like Closer To Fine and Galileo.

Can anybody recommend more music that I may like that falls into this kind of musical taste?

Tracey Chapman

Not a big fan of Tracy Champan, but I like Fiona Apple. I'd have to say it's more the attitude and the vocals. Ani DiFranco recorded a song called "Untouchable Face" where she sang it live in a concert hall where the management objected and asked her to change the lyrics while she was in the middle of singing the song. Instead she laughed them off and emphasized the objectionable word even more. And the audience went crazy. I love that! I want to hear more stuff like that.

Jewel is no where near that genre of music, but she does have a few songs with that attitude in it.
One , she cant really sing in public because she starts screaming Faggot at the top of her lungs and talks about people wanting to kill jewish kids because of thier hate for jews.

I personally love the song, but not the musical style.

Tori Amos. Mazzy Star. Norah Jones. The last two are really mellow though.

Are you saying that they are lesbians? Or that their music is attractive to lesbians? I know Sarah McLaughlin is not a lesbian as she is married with a kid. Bi, maybe. Lesbian, no. And Tori Amos and Sarah McLaughlin are very different in their musical styles so I don't see how they could fall into that catagory either. Tori is a bit of a man hater, but Sarah really isn't.

So, are you going for Chick Rock?

I don't think he means "lesbian" in a literal sense.

I think he's looking for the lineup for the next Lillith Fair or something like that.

Hmm,
These might not be quite what you are looking for, but check out Cat Power, Des Ark, Sleater Kinney, and Le Tigre. Strong voiced young women with attitude.

(And I like 'em all a whole lot.)

Bella Dea, I'm not playing that game. The indigo Girls and Melissa Etheridge are openly gay. And I think the power behind their music shows that they don't care. The other performers simply have the same persona and beat. I like the sound!

Slappy Doo Hoo, Mazzy Star. Now we're talking...

What game is it you are referring to? I was asking a valid question. You are looking for the same beat and persona....so really, calling it Lesbian Rock was quite misleading, IMO. You should have just said that straight out.

Excuse me for asking for clarification.

Maybe it's just the rocks of intolerance clacking around inside your head roverroad.

Lesbian rock as an alleged format is an insult to lesbians everywhere...



(note the jealousy over the lack of a queer rock thread)

OK this is getting out of hand! We've moved beyond the music now into the political correctness, or the "feelings" category...

Why is saying Lesbian Rock such a bad thing? Especially when it wasn't meant in a derogatory way.

Feelings...nothing more than feelings...trying to forget my feelings of love....


feelings....woe woe woe feelings...


(and for the record I wasn't really looking at any of that P.C. crapola...)


Carry on now...and let's not forget Grace Jones in all of this...

Who cares. You go to any of these shows, and there's tons of lesbians there. Tori Amos may not be "lesbian rock," but you sure the hell can't tell from the crowd.

Oh for Petes sake people I was just asking for clarification of the kind of music he was looking for...was it music BY lesbians? FOR lesbians?

Apparently, neither, which was what I was asking.

By the way, who the hell IS Pete? And why are we doing anything for his sake?
