In honor of Veteran's Day.  Judy Small is an Australian singer-songwriter.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find her version on youtube.  I heard Judy sing this at Harvard 25 years ago.

I posted this in my blog recently, but it absolutely needs to be here too.

I mentioned in my blog, that in the mid-90s is was a total revelation to me to hear women this bold and fierce. So awesome. Really two of the most powerful songs.
 
The ultimate anthem.

And, a superb version of "Miss World".  I've watched this about 20 times since I discovered it the other day on YouTube.

The Kills- "Cat Claw"

Amazing song and super sexy singer (Alison Mosshart)...

I feel the need to explain a bit about the word "kill" in relation to riot grrrl/ feminist punk music.  "Kill" has somehow become a code word/ insider word for feminist rock... and I don't entirely know how it originated.  But, yeah, in terms of an insider term... in "Miss World" by Hole above... there's a famous lyric "kill girls watch, I eat ether...", there's the foundational riot grrrl group Bikini Kill (founded by Kathleen Hanna who went on to found Le Tigre), the group I posted here (The Kills), and there's also a famous riot grrrl indie record label called Kill Rock Stars (who publish music by Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney and many, many others).  I don't know if the origin of using the word "kill" comes from the Kill Rock Star label or from Bikini Kill... but it's, essentially, just an interesting phenomenon to be aware of in the category of feminist punk...

LOL, funny that the last post here was about The Kills.  I saw them in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday and they were absolutely amazing.  The singer, Alison Mosshart is a total powerhouse.
