Post-riot grrl wizards The Girl Fridas are refusing to let this crappy patriarchal world get them down with jangly new track ‘Daggers’. Rounding out in under two minutes and hitting that perfect mix of brassy punk guitar and trenchant vocals, its got all the words I think any of us have said or wanted to say to the cat-callers who cross our path.
Just ’cause I’m in leopard print
Don’t mean I’m ‘up for it’
I am going to have so much ammunition for the next time I hear a wolf whistle while walking down the street.
How does it feel to walk behind you dick
In front of you, it governs you
It doesn’t govern me
The Girl Fridas are mid-way through a host of August residency shows at Melbourne’s Workers Club with the last two shows stacked with some excellent support from Plastic Knife & Rupert Ramon, Only Leonie, Piss Factory, Hi-Tec Emotions and CHELSEA BLEACH.
