Tunesday Tuesday: Tattle Tale
Tattle Tale have been one of my favorite riot grrrl bands for a long time. Tattle Tale has long since broken up, but I still like to bust out their cassette and cd once in a while. Everyone needs some good riot grrrl in their life, no? Tattle Tale was a duo made up of Bonfire Madigan and Jen Wood. They formed Tattle Tale when they were teenagers, and I discovered their music through the Kill Rock Stars record label.
When I was in high school I used to write to indie record labels and ask them for a copy of their catalog. I did not have a cd player, only a cassette stereo and walkman, and I had a record player. I only ordered cassettes for most of my high school career, and I was so happy when Tattle Tale had this cassette only release!
I love Tattle Tale for a number of reasons - I love their lyrics and singing, how sewing is a theme throughout their music, and how they have a love for Pippi Longstocking. How many bands today can claim that?
My friend in Seattle found a copy of their cd for me. I love this cd, and it is really hard to find. I think there are downloads online for it now, but I had a terrible time trying to find it for ages.
Here is my favorite song by Tattle Tale.
