Women Make Noise

Julia Downes,

Aurora Metro Press

As more and more female solo artists hit the mainstream the question arises: where are the girl bands? Why aren't they getting the attention they deserve?

While the media continues to ignore them, in Women Make Noise Julia Downes invites musicians, promoters and high profile artists to discuss their favorite girl bands: not the type who sing along to backing tracks: the real musicians, who can actually play their instruments. Including interviews with classic punk groups like The Raincoats and The Slits, as well as household names like Bjork and Beth Ditto, this timely celebration of the best female bands will show magazines like NME that ignoring girl bands is a major oversight.

"Fascinating, diverse and, most importantly, inspiring - the title alone is as much a rallying cry as a joyous statement of the truth." - Zoe Street Howe, author of Typical Girls? The Story of The Slits and other music titles.

"It's exhilerating to learn about different generations of female musicians from such diverse, strong voices." - Kathleen Hanna

"A very important and timely contribution to the debates about "women in rock". All-girl bands have too often been written off as novelties, and this exciting book sheds new light on an under-researched area." - Lucy O'Brien, She Bop: The Definitive History of Women in Rock, Pop and Soul.
