Head To Head: Chicks Who Shred - ROUND TWO!




VS:




The winner from last round, Marnie Stern, takes on the grunge betty riff-mongers that make up Veruca Salt with their 1995 classic "Seether". Boy, I was a huge fan back when I was 17, I wonder why.....

Again, Stern shreds from the word go, whereas the Salt save the big solo for a change amongst some monster riffage. Ow!!

Your winner please? And suggestions for who they can face in the next round?

Blimpy - just saw the Michel Gondry Flight of the Conchords. Genius.

Too many dicks on the dancefloor!!

Well, I am hardly a shredder myself and I read Round Two before Round One, so I got that all wrong.

Anyway, Veruca Salt won that one IMO.

So for the next Face Off how about Sleater Kinney?

This one, for preference;

They are all Soooooooo Cute!

Corin is playing a nice Danelectro (and looking lovely).

And Carrie is playing a Ricky!

Or there is Jumpers

Which rocks more.

Hey, let's just give Carrie Brownstein the prize anyway.

Unless it is for gorgeousness, in which case, give it to Susannah Hoffs (ooh-er missus).

Listened to both twice. Veruca Salt proved to be worthy opponents for Marnie the flashy up and comer,
but for sheer inventiveness it's Marnie for me. Actually, this is one of the videos I watched last night. Bonus points for nicking the opening note of Sandie Shaw's Euro-winner Puppet On A String.
Please do not match Marnie v. Polly Jean just yet, I don't think she's ready.

Get her up against Poison Ivy - if PI doesn't kick her ass musically , she 'll kick it real style...

As a guitarist, Bonnie Raitt is hard to fault.

June Millington rocked out pretty well in Fanny, too.

18 year-old mosher grandson just voted for Marnie Stern. He's just gone home to check all the links. Result!

I'm going with Veruca Salt. I was just reliving their 1995 Glasto performance on Youtube. Great gig - ended with their playing twenty-five on their backs.

How about The Donnas for the next round? Allison Robertson sure can rock.

It's close.....

Not sure about it myself, but I understand Australians have a 'thing' for what she does

I cant get past the fact that she calls herself Kaki (pronounced like it means dirty pants)
