This band provided one of my first true music experiences. They also introduced me to the term “alternative”. One evening during a conversation lull while on the phone with a cheerleader I was dating at the time, she happened to hear the Femmes playing in the background. She said with horror, “What is that? Are you alternative?!” I could only respond, “I don’t know…what’s that mean?” 17 years later….I guess I am, in fact, alternative.
Gone Daddy Gone
This album made me want to run through the streets wild and free!
