Violent Femmes

Violent Femmes

Rhino/Slash 79951

Released on October 17, 2000


Emerging, literally, from the streets of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they gained notoriety through busking, this strange trio led by guitarist-vocalist Gordon Gano became a cult favorite with their self-titled debut album in 1983. Influenced greatly by Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers, the Femmes' minimalist sound pitted Gano's low-volume electric guitar against Brian Ritchie's acoustic bass guitar and Victor De Lorenzo's ashcanlike homemade drum kit--all of which only served to make Gano's angst-ridden adolescent tirades more arresting.

This album rules. Most of it is all acoustic, and the bass dominates the majority of the songs. The lyrics are pretty sappy, but I can overlook that, because the songs are fucking awesome. There are a few slow ones that aren't very good, but that doesn't really matter, because the rest make up for it.
