Thinking on early lady punkers. The Raincoats were pretty great. Here they are playing live on WFMU in 1994. Apparently the day after Kurt Cobain, who was a fan, died. They have toured extensively including with LiliPUT whom I just posted about.
The Raincoats originally formed in 1977 while Ana da Silva and Gina Burch were attending Hornsey College of Art in London. Check out The Raincoats website for albums and such. State-side you can get their self-titled record on vinyl via Kill Rock Stars.
Sounds on this isn’t great, but Kitschchao was the hot Philly band back in the early 90s when I was in Philly. And you can sort of get the gist here. This was a fun show. Those were the days when I spun at WKDU.
Tonight, though, it’s WRCT. 9pm to midnight. 88.3 FM Pittsburgh.
WFMU posted this on one of their feeds last week. It’s too good not to share with y’all as well. And a great way to get psyched for the radio show tonight. WRCT, 9pm to midnight. 88.3 FM in Pittsburgh or stream via wrct.org.
