Keep Your Eye On the Ball

Self-Release
Street: 2007
Monorchist = Sleater Kinney + Joan Jett

Kourtney Farnsworth might be feminine, but she’s no prissy girl. Singing in a taunting tone on the best track, “Action Girl”: “She’s not like Barbie, there’s no fucking way. She’s like GI Joe! Commando style.” Lyrics in “F.K.A.” reminded me of Bianca Butthole (R.I.P.) of Betty Blowtorch and the Butt Trumpet. Vocals are reminiscent of riot grrl bands; the music is energetic with punk influences. Recorded by Andy Patterson with great black + white artwork by Tony Poulson.
