The Violent Femmes always warm me up.
It has been cold up here near the Cave-Some of this below zero crazy cold!
The Violent Femmes probably don’t think of themselves as a nice cup of hot chocolate or even a healthy dose of 12 year old scotch to ward off the winter freeze-but they always do that to this one ancient rock guy.
These guys always bring me back. If ever my allegiance to rock music starts to waiver-their songs always sound fresh—-like someone just cooked up the music right in front of you.
And not prepackaged “assemble a sandwich in front of you and call it fresh” like Subway—-I mean like one of those Japanese restaurant deals with the flames going and the knives slashing!!!
Fresh-Dangerous-and I am going back for some more.
I don’t know what the name means and I really don’t care—-It is ironic and it was coined in a time when Femme was a bad thing and Violence was a good thing.
What it means today is anybody’s guess.
This band always brings me back.
This is what music should do.
Warm you up on a cold day.
