Girls Together Outragously
03.31.08 | No Comments

My stepdad just gave me this cd randomly. I guess because he knows I like strange obscure music by women. The GTO’s are an all girl groupies group produced by Frank Zappa in the late 1960s. One of the group’s members Pamela Des Barres, wrote the memoir I’m with the Band. Their cd Permanent Damage is a weird mixture of strange theatrical songs and random interviews. It is very rough music but it does precede some later girl bands like Liliput, The Raincoats, Rasputina, CocoRosie, and they even remind me of my friend Dame Darcy’s music.

It is as if you gave the mischievous turn of the century girls from Picnic at Hanging Rock a recording studio in 1968.

One of my favorite films ever:
Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)
Directed by Peter Weir
