Riot Grrrl Melody Maker cover

Excerpted from DIY Queer Feminist (Sub)cultural Resistance in the UK by Julia Downes.

“It has really saddened me recently to see all this fuss and hype over what is basically a right on press man’s invention. I am talking of course, about this Riot Grrrl revolution that has hit our shores … Where is it, ET? … Thanks to you ET, the music industry and especially my precious Maker, has become a vehicle for right-on crap music bollocks that pushes aside any other form of new music that does not conform to your revolutionary agenda … You are killing music, just as Stalin killed communism.”
