I had the pleasure of seeing Sleater-Kinney on a number of occasions, the first of which was to half full house at Jabberjaw sometime during the summer of 1996. For some reason no one wanted to go with me to that show, which is funny because now there are probably all kinds of people who would like to have been there. I was one of only a handful of boys there.

They were always great. I never saw a bad Sleater-Kinney show.

When Dig Me Out came out, I swear I heard it every single place I went, including my own bedroom. Everyone in the world seemed to be listening to that record at once, and it was awesome.

I had the pleasure of singing karaoke with Janet one evening at The Mint in San Francisco. She sang "Like A Prayer", if memory serves me.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Sleater-Kinney.

I've been checking this out since Henry Owings did a guest spot a couple of weeks ago. Brilliant stuff. Thanks so much for so much great music!

OH MY GOD. You have the Free to Fight 7"?!??! Queers EVERYWHERE have been looking for a copy of it! Could you digitize the whole thing and post it? Everyone I know would practically give their first born child for a digital version of it.

Also: you are doing a magnificent job with this blog overall. Keep on keepin' on!

Unfortunately my records are currently in storage, and I only digitized the Sleater-Kinney track. I'm glad to hear that you are enjoying the blog, though.
