7 Year Bitch - Lorna

Another one from the ex-GF. Straight up "Girl Grunge" from a Seattle all-girl band. Apparently not a Riot Grrrl band, so I'm making that distinction.

Anyway, 7 Year Bitch endured their share of trials and tribulations, including the OD of their guitarist Stefanie Sargent, and the brutal murder of their good friend (and C/Z labelmate) Mia Zapata of The Gits. Valerie Agnew, 7 Year Bitches' drummer went on to co-found anti-violence non-profit group Home Alive after Zapata's death, which is a pretty cool and constructive way to deal with something horrific like that.

Despite all of this, they had a 7 year run and cut 3 LPs. Not sure what they sounded like later, as this is their first single, but they're definitely on the heavier side and a bit unpolished.

A: Lorna, No Fuckin' War
B: You Smell Lonely


  1. Thanks Matt!

    Their last album was too effectsy for my tastes, but the second, 'Viva Zapata', is on my top album list. It kills!

    BTW, do you know of a band called STP, a possible Riot Grrl super group? They had one track called 'Sweet Man' on a comp 7" called ...And Everything Nice with L7, Hole and Babes In Toyland and a couple others. Around 1990-92?
