Cinderella's Big Score by Maria Raha
Paperback book. Pre-owned, great condition
This book discussed the contributions of punk's female artists and tells the story of how these women created spaces for themselves in the music underground and how they tested the limits of what was socially acceptable, even in the punk scene.
The independent music world is littered with females who have withstood the racket of punk's intolerance and Raha focuses on the U.S and England in the 70s and 80s, and illuminates how these women of this time shaped the female rockers of today.
The Runaways, The Slits, and The Plasmatics to L7, Sleater-Kinney, and Le Tigre. The book includes women not often featured in "women in rock" titles, such as Exene Cervenka of X, Eve Libertine and Joy de Vivre of Crass, and Poison Ivy Rorschach of the Cramps. Includes rare interviews and more than forty B&W photos.
