Tell me some stories about interesting or weird ways you found a band you like!
One day I was reading an essay about Pringles and their beginnings as influenced by the culture of the time. A particular paragraph struck me:
...by the early 1970s...the mass-marketing zeitgeist was embracing hippy ideals... That the actual hippies had moved on after Altamont and were living in squalid communes in Northern California, where they neglected their love children, failed as farmers and cooked up speed in tar-paper shacks, simply proves the point...
I never heard of Altamont before and went to find out more. It was a music festival sort of intended to be a 'sequel' to Woodstock. In reading about it, I noticed The Ace of Cups, one of the first all-woman rock bands. I was now double intrigued and bought their only recorded material, "It's Bad for You But Buy It!" Great album, the music and the emotion are raw as hell. I consider it a tragedy that this band is not more well-known, but I am thankful for the essay about Pringles that led me to hear of them.
Mrs. stake you say some nasty on my threads. Dirty bitch
