about

I played drums in three All-Girl Bands:
This ditty has a verse for each of my All-Girl Bands

-the Urge, a San Francisco first wave punk band circa 1978-80

-Pulsallama, a 7-11 piece percussion ensemble conceived of by Ann Magnuson an fronted by Ann, Wendy Wild, Kimberly Davis and April Palmeri, We opened 5 dates for the Clash and are sampled on Danny Brown's "Atrocity Exhibition"

-Clambake, who featured Southern ex-patriots Holly George Warren Liz Gall and Cathy Crane and Shirley Winters. Alex Chilton mixed our unreleased EP.

Mike Trebilcock of the Killjoys and Josh Robins helped me shape this song.
look for my video to the song on YouTube!

lyrics

Drum lessons in the basement
Drum lessons uptown
1s and 2s and 4s and 8s
I think I'm getting it down

Hands greasy from Chinese food
I played a sloppy set
"You're the worst band we've ever heard."
Bill Murray just left

The best of times, worst of times
slumber party, knocked down drag out fights

All Girl Band, All Girl Band


Fought with Liz before we left
but we laughed all the way to Chapel Hill
We played bad at the Brewery
Third on the bill

The best of times, worst of times
Ran and hid, I could not keep the time

The gigs we opened for the Clash
we got pelted, heckled and jeered
but the last time we turned it around
they clapped and they cheered
We sang ULSAPAY AMALAY
Pulsallama What's my Name?

All Girl Band, All Girl Band

We learned to play on the stage
One note at a time
Out of tune, a beat behind
Dressed up fancy, we had chutzpah
We weren't afraid
All the boys were envious
cuz we got the gigs,
We got the gigs!

All Girl Band, All Girl Band
