Excuse 17?

Post by grungebeautiful » Sun Oct 18, 2009 10:48 pm

Does anyone know anything about these guys? I've never heard them before but apparently they were big on the riot grrrl scene and from Olympia. Signed to Atlas Records at one point, Chainsaw Records at another point..just wondering if anyone collected their stuff or had ever given them a listen

They were also signed to Kill Rock Stars record label, which is also stationed in Olympia. I think I have a compilation of Kill Rock Star bands and they were on it. I need to check on that though. I remember I downloaded their "Such Friends Are Dangerous" album, I need to check if it's still on my computer. It should be, if I remember they had a very punk motivated sound. Not like a 7 Year Bitch or L7 type of punky sound, a more solid punk root....They remind me of a female version of Joy Division, I don't know if people agree with that or not, but whatever.

I'm not sure which two though, but 2 of the members from Excuse 17 went off to form Sleater-Kinney. Which is a cool band to check out if you're really into Excuse 17.

Well, I need to show it to you first to see if you like it. When you get online long enough we can video chat and I can show it to you. And if you dig it, i'll send it than.

I'm not a major Sleater-Kinney fan either, but I do love my Kill Rock Stars Compilations. They have some great stuff on their label, and on those albums.....Granted not my favorite label of all time, but a decent one :)

True. A little bit of digging through the label, and you'll find a band that suits you.

Oh yeah, I remember liking their stuff when I checked it out. Man, so many riot grrrl bands :shock:
