SLEATER-KINNEY Drops Detonating Title Track From New LP ‘THE CENTER WON’T HOLD’…

Brand new sonic impulses

17 July 2019

Despite the unexpected and unfortunate departure of drummer Janet Weiss life goes
on for riot grrrl legends SLEATER-KINNEY as they will unleash new album, entitled ‘THE CENTER WON’T HOLD’ on 16th August. After sharing robust lead single Hurry On Home and poppy second track The Future Is Here earlier on the band just dropped the political title track.

The song refers to “the world of catastrophe that touches on the (American) election” says guitarist/vocalist Corin Tucker in a press statement. After a rather meditative start, the
track will detonate near the end. Feel the shock here, ladies and gents…

Remembering great moments in sonic history…

Band: SLEATER-KINNEY (Olympia, Washington, US)

Album: ONE BEAT – their sixth LP

Released: 20 August 2002 – 15 years ago

Reviews: by Pitchfork and All Music

Quote: as NME‘s Victoria Segal said brilliantly: “Few bands could explore motherhood and terrorism without making you want to shoot them: Corin Tucker’s electric-shock voice and the adrenalin guitars make them essential pop topics…”

Essential lyrics: From Combat Rock. Highly relevant again: “Where is the questioning / Where is the protest song? / Since when is skepticism un-American? / The good old boys are back on top again / And if we let them lead us blindly / The past becomes the future once again”

My Three Top Tracks: Light Rail Coyote / One Beat / Combat Rock

LIGHT RAIL COYOTEstraight in your face

ONE BEAT – “a sonic push for energy“…

COMBAT ROCK America going the wrong way again

SLEATER-KINNEY Released Powerhouse Punk Album ‘DIG ME OUT’ Twenty Years Ago…

Memorable moments in sonic history!…


8 April 1997 – 20 years ago

Mighty powerful trio SLEATER-KINNEY reinjected female punk back in the nineties with passionate fire, ardent rage and outspoken leftist statements. Third album DIG ME OUT released 20 years ago today, 8 April 1997, was a smashing powerhouse from start to finish and definitely a key album in their exciting career. Riot grrrll fury at its very best. Hell yeah!

What the press said…

“Dig Me Out captures the noise of a soul-filled body shaking itself awake, and that’s an experience that bridges any gender divide. In it, guys as well as girls will hear the rattle of their brains and the flash of their libidos. The catharsis Sleater-Kinney seek is more than just fun. It’s a battle in earnest for the human right to know and possess yourself. Feminism was supposed to be about that fight, too, but it’s still sputtering under the weight of its own complacency. Sleater-Kinney push us back into the fray. If they wanna be our Simone de Beauvior, Dig Me Out proves they’re up to it.”

“When Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein proclaimed “I Wanna Be Your
Joey Ramone” on 1996’s Call the Doctor, they were laying down a dare to themselves and the Nineties indie-rock scene. The band’s next album, Dig Me Out, made good on that promise. Adding powerhouse drummer Janet Weiss, the Olympia, Washington, trio’s feminist punk hit hard — from the elated rush of “Words and Guitar” to the raw romantic torment of “One More Hour.”

One of the highlights ‘One More Hour‘ live in 1998 in a record shop in New York…
