Noisegasm: Yeastie Girlz

I have a confession. I know I’m not supposed to, I know this makes me a bad/lame person, but… I sort of hate Berkeley and most things of the well-known things that come out it. (See: organic “California cuisine,” slam poetry, uppity Cal students, hippies in general…) Gilman is one of the only exceptions.

That said, holy shit, if you haven’t heard the fan-fucking-tastic noisegasm that is Yeastie Girlz, prepare yourself for a game-changer. The Berkeley-based a capella “VAGINACORE” rap group released one 7″ entitled Ovary Action which rules harder than… *censors self.*

Ovary Action came out on Lookout! in ’88, and covered all of the best “inappropriate” but oh-so-necessary topics. Like, why girls should masturbate. And why every guy needs to learn to go down on his girl. And how dudes need to get on board with condoms (this was the late ’80s, let’s keep in mind.) Rounding out the EP is a classic “Fuck tha FCC” jam and a Buzzcocks cover. Needless to say, these women are the shit.

Here’s “Put a Lid on It,” ’cause when you meet a hot zine editor on Gilman, you know, you still need to practice safe fucking:

And a personal favorite, “You Suck,” about “sucking cunt on the rag,” er, I mean, gender equality:

You just might hear ’em on my female-fronted punk radio show tomorrow night- Saturday from 10pm-midnight streaming on Radio Valencia.

    While I know nothing about Berkley, I shall have to agree with your dislike of the place, since I believe the Residents’ music got banned there after a memorable performance of The Third Reich n’ Roll. 😛 Then again, they may have just made that up for a joke…but I’m pretty sure they were banned somewhere beginning with a B!

    Vaginacore? Sounds…interesting.

    ‘You Suck’ was redone with Consolidated wasn’t it? damn well as I recall.
