L7 Bricks Are Heavy 1992


L7 was formed by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner on shared electric guitar and shared vocals. A year previous, Gardner had performed backing vocals on the Black Flag song "Slip It In". The punk rock duo were soon joined by Jennifer Finch on bass guitar and Roy Koutsky on drums. Koutsky left shortly after and Demetra Plakas ("Dee" for short) became their permanent drummer.

The band's name derives from a 1950s slang phrase meaning "square," but is often mistaken for a reference to the sex position, "69".


Here's all the songs by Dickless. Kelly Canary, due to her growling vocals, destroyed her vocal chords. Jana went on to release a couple of solo albums.

From LastFM
Dickless was a short lived all-girl band from Seattle, Washington. Signed to Sub Pop records, they released their only record in May 1990.

The original line-up consisted of Kelly Canary (vocals), Kerry Green (guitar), Jana McCall (bass), and Lisa Smith (drums). Jennie Trower eventually replaced McCall on bass guitar, while Meagan Jasper replaced Canary on vocals in the band’s later days.
