First post on a female drummer

Each member of Sleater Kinney deserves a post of her own. I'm not going to cover all three members in a row, but I'm going to start with the drummer, Janet Weiss. Because everyone loves female drummers--don't get a female drummer if you're in a band and you don't like being upstaged, because everyone will fall in love with your drummer and ignore you. They have that much sex appeal.

Okay, kidding. (In case you couldn't tell, if I had any talent I would want to play the drums.) Sort of--there really is a romantic appeal to watching a woman drum, because the drums are the most unwieldy of instruments and watching a woman handle them with the same seeming effortlessness as any male drummer puts the last nail in the coffin of the weak argument that women don't have they physical ability to manage musical instruments. (Yes, people say this. *sigh*)

I've seen people spazz out with love for Janet Weiss, and with good cause. While the signature sound of Sleater Kinney is the way that the other two members play and sing together, it wouldn't work without a good drummer to anchor them to the rock sound. I've only seen them live once and it was really quite telling that while Carrie Brownstein and Corrin Tucker were able to rivet the audience to them, it was when Weiss really got going that so did the dancing in the crowd.

She's also the drummer for a really fun band called Quasi, which is one of those two piece bands that is oh-so-popular nowadays. While Sleater Kinney is all fire and passion, with the occasional kicky tune, Quasi is more eclectic. Their newest album that I have is called Hot Shit, and it has a sort of country-ish sound to a lot of the songs. A favorite by them is Featuring "Birds", which is also a lot of fun to listen to.

Is Janet Weiss a psuedonymn? Does she realize she's engaged to Brad Majors? That's awesome either way.

I have no idea if it's a pseudonym, and I didn't know about her fiancee, either.

I always wanted a fucked up stage name. I'm always in awe of my friends who have stage names and they actually get people to call them that instead of their boring, everyday name picked for them by parents who were thinking, "Hmmm....what would be a good name for an accountant or a lawyer?"

Another female drummer I loved was Roxy Petrucci, of the 80's band Vixen. Anybody remember them?
