Untypical Girls: Styles and Sounds of the Transatlantic Indie Revolution is a book about redressing a balance. In a music industry typically dominated by men, this fascinating book, assembled by Sam Knee, takes a trip through the sounds, styles and attitudes of the women involved in Punk through to Riot Grrrl who refused to be silenced (1977 - 1993). From Poly Styrene (X-Ray Spex ) and Ari Up (The slits) to Kat Bjelland (Babes in Toyland) and Erin Smith (Bratmobile) this excellent, much needed title is a celebration of the women in a vital UK and American independent music scene.
Combining a glorious array of photographs from deep inside the archives and from unknown photographers across the world with in-depth interviews by some of the leading protagonists of the scene - this is an absolute must.
