UK WOMEN ROCK

VA - Make More Noise! Women In Independent Music UK 1977-1987 [2020] (4 x CD's)

A  90 track set exploring the work of female artists in the decade following the punk explosion. From household names and legends - Alison Moyet, Toyah, Kirsty MacColl, Nico, Tracey Thorn, Chrissie Hynde, Neneh Cherry, Pauline Murray, Sinead O'Connor, Tracey Ullman, Cosey Fanni Tutti - to underground figureheads and unsung pioneers. Spanning the genres - from the punk howl of X-Ray Spex and the NWOBHM stylings of Girlschool to Cosey Fanni Tutti's post-TG electronica, the experimental dub of Vivien Goldman and the the High Street pop of Bananarama. Featuring ninety of the most remarkable female artists, all-girl bands and female-fronted groups to have recorded in the UK during the decade spanning 1977-1987, irrespective of genre and commercial success, Make More Noise proudly explores the breakthrough of countless pioneering women of the era. Of course, hugely successful female pop stars were nothing new in 1977, but this isn't their story. This is the story of the everyday artist. The jobbing, gigging, working musician. (Amazon)
