I will be honest... I’m relatively new to Sleater Kinney. For a 90s kid that might sound odd but I guess unfortunately its true. As with a lot of bands I do actually remember the name but I don’t actually remember hearing anything by them, back then kids you had to buy every single band you were into, there was no Spotify, no Youtube, you had to get on a bus and go and buy the physical copy, no music wasn’t free then, you had to spend you hard earn cash, so before separating with your cash you had to be pretty sure you were going to like the album you were buying. So my first encounter with Sleater Kinney was with their ‘comeback’ album ‘No Cities To Love’. Even when this was released I couldn’t quite understand why a band I had considered such a minor footnote was getting so much attention. Well it turns out ‘No Cities To Love’ rocks and is on bad ass mother. It’s seems on further investigation most of their previous output does the same. Clearly I had missed the bus with Sleater Kinney… Turns out these sex bombs descend from Kurt’s old stomping patch of Olympia, Washington. ‘No Cities To Love’ is definitely one of my favourite rock records of the last few years but all their output should appeal to Nirvana fans. Its better late than never.
