    The ladies are starting to be where it’s at in hard rock and metal. And, no, this is not another post devoted to appreciating The Warning. This is for the rest of them, though I can’t disallow that there may be occasional comparisons.

    Larkin Poe specializes in Southern-fried blues-rock, and boy do they know how to put on a show.

    Full Concert in Cologne

    A lot of the female rock activity is going on in Japan right now, with several all- or mostly-female bands or bands fronted by females exploding there. Typically, they are metal bands. I think Band Maid is the most prominent. They operate a territory similar to The Warning. Hard rock and metal, though their metal can be much harder than The Warning’s. They frequently perform in the speed metal range since their lead guitar, bassist, and drummer are all speed demons. The drummer, Akane, is probably the #1 pretender nowadays to Neil Peart’s throne.

    Extracts from two concerts in 2023

    Freeze the Fall is an up and coming rock trio from North of the Border. They are only 2/3 female, but the male drummer sits in the back whereas the two young women are out front near the audience when they play. Comparisons with the early The Warning are not unwarranted. They are quite young. The lead singer/guitarist, Quinn, is only 16 and her bandmates, Aria bass/backing vocals and Jonah, drums, are both only 15. Yet, they sound much more mature than that. They are a rock band to watch over the next few years. The Warning is aware of them and as The Warning grows, it’s not hard to imagine FtF opening for them.


    Daughters of Witches



    An up-and-coming all-girl rock quartet from Argentina.

    Last month, Fin del Mundo (“end of the world” in English) exploded onto the Latin American emo/indie/post-rock scene with their debut release: a self-titled EP complete with four carefully-crafted and stunningly beautiful tracks that represent the achievement of a specific and sought-after sound a long time in the making. The band is comprised of Julieta Heredia (Juli) on guitar, Julieta Limia (Tita) on drums, Lucía Masnatta (Lu) on guitar and vocals, and Yanina Silva (Yan) on bass and backup vocals.

    Imagine if The Ramones or Sex Pistols were girls.

    With a name like Die Spitz, you’d think this up-and-coming punk band is from Germany, Austria, or perhaps even Switzerland, but they are actually from Austin, Texas. And, a German speaker would know that the German word “Spitz” is masculine, so it should be “Der Spitz.”

    By the way, “Spitz” in German means “pointy” or, colloquially, “the top” (as of a mountain) or even more colloquially, “the pinnacle” or the “best.”

    Well, bad German isn’t the only bad thing about this band. Like any self-respecting punk band, they revel in their amateurity. Their stage presence is chaotic and their performances seem barely rehearsed at all.

    They flaunt a grungy kind of out-of-control sexual energy, some members performing in bikini tops or bras.

    In other words, they are just about the opposite of highly-organized and well-rehearsed bands like The Warning and Larkin Poe.

    So, here you go with a concert srecorded about as professionally as you’re ever likely to hear from this band…ever. In the world of punk, they qualify as perhaps “the next big thing.”
