Melvins "Rebel Girl" (ft. Teri Gender Bender) (video)
Published Sep 21, 2015Joyful Noise Recordings is already sold out of its "Almost Live from Joyful Noise" single featuring sludge guys the Melvins and Le Butcherettes vocalist Teri Gender Bender, but a video for their cranked-up cover of Bikini Kill's classic "Rebel Girl" has gone up online for those who didn't manage to snag a copy.
As you'll see below, King Buzzo and his crew teamed up with Bender for a pretty playful and distorted take on the anthem about the "Queen of the Neighbourhood." A few gnarly riffs are slung, beats are hammered-down, and the Le Butcherettes singer manages to put a pretty impressive spin on Kathleen Hanna's terrifically 'tude-laced lines.
You'll find the fairly faithful run-through of the Bikini Kill anthem down below.
The record had arrived in a limited-edition run of 100 lathed-cut 7-inches. Forthcoming entries in the series have yet to be detailed.
