by Team Dresch
Released: Jan 1995
In many ways, Team Dresch's debut is an insider's album. It's poised at the intersection of queercore and riot grrrl, two insular, indiest of indie scenes. And it's jam-packed with identity politics and inside jokes -- the title itself is a reference to a Sapphic coming-of-age Mariel Hemmingway vehicle that's become a cult film among queer girls. But don't waste time feeling left out, or you might miss the many, deep pockets of undeniable, universal appeal: Kaia Wilson's sweet, sweet vocal spasms; the wide and well-crafted stylistic variety; the sophisticated skill of "Fake Fight."
