Absolutely. Instrumentally a lot of the guitar work is pretty basic, which is perfect for some of the angular Gang Of Four type riffs they do--but Janet is a beast and drives those songs.Another fan here. I love Janet's drumming. I must've seen her about 4 or 5 times when she was playing with Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks. Awesome!
It means something to anyone who grew up in the Pacific NorthWest, which was probably the majority of their fan base for their first several years. Perhaps not as clever as 764-HERO, but still evokes Washington state highways and off ramps and road signs for me...I like everything I've heard from them, but Sleater-Kinney is possibly the worst band name ever.
It means nothing, evokes nothing and IMHO, probably hurt their career.
uh, no.I like everything I've heard from them, but Sleater-Kinney is possibly the worst band name ever.
