Surface Noise presents Alternagrrrls: Girls to the Front in the ’90s
In the early 1990s, the music industry was experiencing a boom time as Nirvana and other so-called “alternative” musicians racked up big sales with their mix of rock, punk, and metal. At the same, the Riot Grrrl movement brought girls together to make uncompromising music of their own. On Alternagrrrls, these two strands of ’90s music interweave as we hear strong female-led bands forge their own path in the aftermath of the alternative explosion. Some would sign to major labels and others would remain known only to the cognoscenti, but few of them would achieve the commercial success of the most prominent female-driven bands of the era, the Breeders and Belly. In their bid for recorded immortality, however, many of these bands crafted memorable pop and rock worth revisiting in the 21st Century.
