    Oh nostalgia I d forgotten all about this book It always surprises me when I find something I ve read that I haven t catalogued on GR yet This book reminds me of riot grrrl feuds, Courtney Love, babydoll dresses and the kinderwhore look what a name for a look , violets, bad music, good music, high school, and the boyfriend I lent my Babes in Toyland cd to and never got it back from collateral damage of that brea...

    Of course I think this book is cool because I like to obsess over every minute detail of my favorite bandsalthough Neal Karlen s story telling often left me questioning the validity of what was going on I didn t like how he spent a good chunk of the book talking about Mo a r guy and the history of AR men and how he gave so much credit to all these guys trying to keep BIT together I don t blame Babes for wanting to break up and all of their drama with all the ann...

    I picked up Babes in Toyland s CD Fontanelle cause I heard Courtney Love used to play with Kat so I thought I d give it a listen With me liking alot of genre of music and always giving bands a few listens before I judge, I thought their music was so terrible I just couldn t listen to it all or even try and listen to it again I m not sure why I picked up this book to read about their band when I disliked their cd music I guess I figured since it was a swap and figured I could get some jui...

    As books about bands go, I guess this was alright But I must admit that I don t read band biographies that often I was very happy to learn what I did about Lori Barbero, that she was this generous music lover who let everyone and anyone who came through Minneapolis crash at her place and how she taught herself to play drumsI dig her I was bummed that the portrayal of Kat Bjelland turned out to be so negative I really wanted to absolutely love her.Anyway, I m writing this over ten years af As books about bands go, I guess this was alright But I must admit that I don t read band biographies that often I was very happy to learn what I did about Lori Barbero, that she was this generous music lover who let everyone and anyone who came through Minneapolis crash at her place and how she taught herself to play drumsI dig her I w...

    I loved some loud screamy music in my high school days and I did enjoy Babes in Toyland However, when I read this in 10th grade, I thought that they over dramatized a lot of small incidents and that maybe they should have picked a different band to write about I liked it enough to have my mom read it not sure what I was thinking on that one I am pretty sure I made her listen to Handsome and Gretel off of Fontanelle to give her some idea of who she was reading about After that, she was a I loved some loud screamy music in my high school days and I did enjoy Babes in Toyland However, when I read this in 10th grade, I thought that they over dramatized a lot of small incidents and that maybe they should have picked a...

    Had to give a shout out to this one Just reread it for the time A great chronicle of women who wanted to rock and roll, and of the inner workings of an industry that is at times great and at times cutthroat Very well written, and kudos to the author and to these women for following their dreams.

    At the time I read this, I thought this book was incredibly awesome In hindsight, it seemed a bit premature to write a fairly extensive book on a band that, while riding the crest of the wave of grrrl power rock bands, n...
