Donita Sparks talks about L7 reunion

In an interview with i-D, L7 guitarist and vocalist Donita Sparks talked about the band’s reunion and future, where she revealed that they are only focusing on live shows and have no plans to work on their first album since 1999’s Slap-Happy. She explains:

“I hadn’t spoken to some of the band members in 14 years, and when I approached everyone, I said, “Hey, let’s not worry about making a record, do you want to do some shows?” so we’re not focusing on new material. But you never know, we haven’t had a rehearsal yet. It’s strange because this reunion seems to be happening in real time, the media and the public are getting the information as soon as the bandmates are. We haven’t even been in the same room in 18 years. That will happen in early March when we get together and rehearse. It’ll be weird, but in a good way.”

L7 broke up in 2001 after six albums, and the original lineup last performed together in 1996, when bassist Jennifer Finch left the band.

“Greetings People! We want you to know that the love and support you have shown us here on Facebook this year has taken us all a bit by surprise. What started as a simple band page for us to post some archival photos we had been sifting through for an upcoming L7 documentary has turned into a wellspring of enthusiasm for the band. For this WE THANK YOU!

Many of you have asked when we might return for a reunion. Well, it’s been 14 years since our last show, longer if you consider our original line up. But we (Donita, Suzi, Jennifer, and Dee) are hearing you, we are talking about it, and we kinda agree. Why the hell not?

Here’s the situation…

They say to raise a child it takes a village, well to get interest from promoters for L7 to do reunion shows it’s going to take an ARMY. An army of you all. No joke.

Here’s what we need…

We need your continued enthusiasm, your spreading the word by “Sharing” our posts and getting your friends and enemies to “Like” our page.

First and foremost WE NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSES at our new website http://l7theband.com/

Babes in Toyland announce first reunion show

Recently reunited Minneapolis female act Babes in Toyland have announced their first show with the Fontanelle lineup in 18 years, which will take place on February 12th, 2015 at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, California, and tickets go on sale this Friday (November 21st) at 10AM PST. Lead vocalist and guitarist Kat Bjelland had this to say about the band’s decision to reunite:

“It was brought to my attention that not only do we have a lot of diehard fans from back in the day, but also a whole new generation of kids–my son Henry included– that were eager to see us live. I felt some kind of obligation for them to see us, too. But mainly, I just missed my girls and the feeling that comes from playing with them–visceral live therapy.”

Bass player Maureen Herman added, “The first time we played together again, we weren’t sure what it would be like. After knocking the hell out of ‘He’s My Thing’ on the first try, we knew this was going to be fun–and it was going to rock like a motherfucker.”

Babes in Toyland, who lasted for only three albums (Spanking Machine, Fontanelle, and Nemesisters), broke up in 2001 after fourteen years together. The band announced their reunion last July.



Introducing Female Fronted Pop-Punk Act: Coral Springs (Free EP)

As much as I like the fast-hard-hitting skate/melodic stuff, when it comes to female fronted bands it seems like I become so much more open-minded, why? I don’t fuckin’ know. I guess there’s something about female vocalists that gives another approach or dimension to punk rock. Oh wait, let’s cut the crap. I might also just be a sucker for female-fronted pop-punk… Anyway, sucker or not, Coral Springs are playing the typically-catchy-enjoyable pop-punk, and the Netherlands based outfit is actually streaming and offering for free download their latest EP entitled “Find Happiness Here”. Which in my “open-minded” opinion, is pretty good from front to back. I’ll be honest with you though, they’re not reinventing the wheel with a familiar sound that most of you will recognize, but they’re still truly worth a listen.

Stream or download “Find Happiness Here” below. It serves as a follow up to the band’s debut EP “Greetings From Coral Springs” released in 2012. Also available on Bandcamp.
