"'So, Which Band is Your Boyfriend in?' is an exploration of the real-life experiences of non-male participants in the UK's DIY and underground music scenes. It features the views of individuals in various roles (musicians, sound engineers, venue owners, photographers, writers), discovering how and why they got involved in music. The film takes a look at the positive and the not-so-positive experiences in the current music scene, and investigates what can be done to make music more accessible to everyone, regardless of gender.

Featuring: Talia and Villa (Nu, Pogodi!), Lande (Muncie Girls/School of Frock), Pippa (Exeter Cavern), Lou (Caves), The Tuts, Iona (Shit Present), Jen (Colour Me Wednesday), Marcia (The Skints), Laila K (Sonic Boom Six) and many more..."

Hey there. We just got to know about this documentary about female music bands (of different genres) in Argentina. The movie is from 2018, so it was done in the midst of the (still ongoing) revolutionary feminist fights in Argentina... Check it out!

We don't know the filmakers yet, but they have a facebook-site (for those of you that understand spanish).

Recently we discovered a very inspiring collection of poems in the bookshop. As the editor (suhrkamp) states: For millions of women in the US self esteem began with a poem of Maya Angelou.

Coverdetail (Leanne Shapton/Suhrkamp Taschenbuch Verlag)

An excerpt:

"You may shoot me with your words / you may cut me with your eyes / you may kill me with your hatefulness / but still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you? / does it come as a surprise / that I dance like I've got diamonds / at the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history's shame / I rise / Up from a past that's rooted in pain / I rise / I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, / Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear / I rise / Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear / I rise / Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, / I am the dream and the hope of the slave. / I rise / I rise / I rise."

Breathtaking, don't you think?


Im Buchladen sind wir über eine Gedichtsammlung dieser phänomenalen Frau gestolpert, die zweisprachig bei Suhrkamp erschienen ist. Der Verlag schreibt: Für Millionen Frauen in den USA begann das eigene Selbstvertrauen mit einem Gedicht von Maya Angelou.

Wir sind begeistert von ihr!
