I KNOW WHY THE CAGED GRRRL SINGS – available to pre-order!

by Ruth

Exciting news!

Our song The Lead Role will be released *exclusively* on the Riots Not Diets compilation I Know Why The Caged Grrrl Sings on 1st July 2014.

It’ll be available as a digital album, and as a blue 12″ record with A3 zine, insert and download code.

There are a whole host of other ridiculously cool bands on this compilation who have also played Riots Not Diets events in Brighton.

You can pre-order it right now for a mere £6 (or more, if you’d like to contribute to the workings of a lovely DIY label).

New studio recordings…

by Ruth

…are coming soon! Well, soonish. We have at least a couple of releases planned in the next few months, and will no doubt tell you all about them as soon as we’re ready to.
In the meantime, here’s a re-recorded version of This Revolution Is Not Complete to whet your musical appetite.

Compilations!

by Ruth

Our songs have been included on a couple of brand new shiny compilations.

The first of these is Clarion Call, an international feminist punk album put together by American DIY label Stick-Shift Records. It features 17 great songs from bands based in the USA, the UK, New Zealand, Portugal, Brazil, France and Ireland. We’re totally hyped that “Balls” is on this great release! Digital copies are available for free (or a donation, if you prefer) from Bandcamp, and we’ll also have a handful of physical copies available at upcoming gigs.

You can also find us on Fun Switch, a collection of songs by bands who have played Coventry riot grrrl event Revolt in the past year. “Intersectionality Song” is included on this one, alongside a whole load of other great songs, many of them by awesome bands we’ve gigged with in the past few months. The download is totally free.

Summer gigs

by Ruth

We’re playing up and down the country (sort of) this summer…here’s where you can catch us!

On Saturday 29th June we’re playing Clit Rock at the Cowley Club in Brighton.

The gig will be a fundraiser for anti-FGM charity Daughters of Eve. Obviously this is a ridiculously important cause so if you’re in the area you should totally drop by.

There is also an awesome line-up of punky goodness, including furious socialist-feminist singer-songwriter Momma Swift, folky threesome Feralus, and the awesomely talented Cat Bear Tree, who we’re really looking forward to playing with again.

On Sunday 28th July we’re playing a queer/riot grrrl all-dayer at Wharf Chambers in Leeds. There is a MASSIVE line-up of AWESOME QUEER/GRRRL BANDS including Mancunian electro-punk legends (hooker), pop-punk/ska lovers Jesus & His Judgemental Father, and several totally cool groups who are flying over from the USA. It’s gonna blow your shit.

…aaaaaand finally (for now) on Saturday 17th August we’re gonna be playing for UK Feminista for their Summer School at The Lounge in Selly Oak, Birmingham. Basically, if you go to the Summer School (a weekend of feminist workshops) you can see us play! Hurrah.

Some music for you to listen to

by Ruth

We’ve been busily coming up with new shouty punk songs over the past few months and would like share them all with you. As such, we’re vaguely planning a second recording session this summer – watch this space for more details!

In the meanwhile, we’ve edited the RaW/Bandsoc recording of our Warwick Battle of the Bands set this year into a short live EP of sorts. You can download it for free from our Bandcamp page, along with our first studio recording, Punk Is Not. 

Also! Our song Balls is featured on Cats Against Catcalling, the shiny new compilation of feminist music put together by the Riot Grrrl Berlin collective. You can download the whole thing (with nearly five hours of awesome music by 95 bands!) for free, along with previous compilations by Riot Grrrl Berlin.

In which Not Right appear all over the place

by Ruth

Thanks to everyone who came to see us at Revolt – it was great to see so many people having a good time! We had some issues hearing ourselves on stage but apparently no-one noticed, which can only be a good thing. Apparently we sound like a proper band now and everything.

Talking of recent gigs, we’ve just put up some photos from Battle of the Bands. You can see them here.

Looking ahead to the future, we have many exciting gigs coming up. Here’s the ones we have confirmed at present:


Saturday 20th April
(Leamington Spa)
We’ll be playing brand new Leamington venue LAMP alongside pop-punkers Taxi Treats and blues rock band Handsome Devils Club. This looks likely to be our last gig on home turf for a little while plus we’ve got a nice long set with many, many (short) songs, so if you live locally you should totally come down to see us play. We might even play some new tunes we’ve been working on…
More details, tickets etc.
Facebook event page.

Friday 10th May (London)
We’re playing the wonderfully named National Minimum Rage at Power Lunches in Hackney. Shopping and Methodist Centre are also playing, there will be DJs from Power Queers and Cinnamon Buns, zine distros, and a screening of “She Said Boom”, a documentary about Canadian feminist punk pioneers Fifth Column.
Facebook event page.

Saturday 11th May (Birmingham)
Can’t make it to London? Well, we’ll be shuttling up to the Midlands the very next day to take part in a punk halfdayer at the Adam & Eve organised by Birmingham collective Punks Alive. There will be many awesome bands playing from 2pm onwards!
Facebook event page.

Punk Halfdayer

Thursday 30th May (Birmingham)
We’ll be returning to the Adam & Eve at the end of May for another gig with Punks Alive – this time supporting Swedish goth rockers Dark Valentine.
Punks Alive page.

Saturday 29th June (Brighton)
A fundraiser for Daughters Of Eve: an organisation committed to preventing female genital mutilation. It’ll take place in the Cowley Club and there will be a whole host riot grrrlesque groups also playing. More details to follow – keep an eye the live page.

…aaaand finally for now, we’d like to plug the latest issue of the Alternative Female Voices Magazine – not only because it’s great (as usual) but because our song “Balls” is on the covermount CD!

Revolt #2

by Ruth

We’re playing Revolt on Saturday! It promises to be super-awesome and stuff. We’ll have copies of our latest zine, hopefully new t-shirts and other goodies. There’s a Facebook event page here and you can buy tickets here.
