It`s kind of typicall, that the British claim Riot Grrrls as their own thing (mind you, they still think they invented Punk). As my understanding of it, Riot Grrrls developed from Foxcore (you know, Babes in Toyland, Seven year Bitch, Dickless, Calamity Jane ect) and only the British leg of it was rather feeble. And Mambo Taxi werenÂ´t Riot Girrrls in the first place. More wet Indie Pop, but Do you always dress like that in front of other peoples Boyfriends? remains a classic. The singer is now in Animals that Swim, me thinks.
Note on Peter Perett. When I first got into the Only Ones, his voice reminded me of Gordon Garno. What do you think?
