Babes in Toyland - House

Lots of work road trips have cut into blogging and ripping time. I've  accumulated about a dozen 7" to rip over the last 2 months, and they're just gathering dust while I'm in Ohio or Michigan for work. I'll see if I can get moving on these.

I'm marching slowly but steadily towards the goal of getting the whole Singles Club Part 1 together. Of course that first single might not happen, it's a bit rare, but I'll get the rest of them in place.

As for this band- they weren't really a part of Riot Grrrl, they actually pre-date it. I guess they're sort of a girl grunge band, and they sound the part on this single. The vocals take some getting used to; Kat Bjelland is all over the place. She screeches, howls and screams her way through both tracks.

A: House
B: Arriba
