DR. SPIN
Bif Naked, Type O Negative, and More!
Music fans encourage Dr. Spin to look into more 'new' bands.

Recently, I reviewed the Dandy Warhols’ Thirteen Tales of Bohemia, mentioning a reader had first brought my attention to the band. Apparently some readers saw this and wanted me to check out their favorite bands, too! See below:
 
A band I urge you to listen to is Type O Negative, particularly their October Rust album. Imagine Black Sabbath, the Beatles, Depeche Mode and the Sisters of Mercy all jamming together... you get the idea. Definitely worth a review.

Best,
Mir
 
Dear Mir,
 
Try as I might, I just can’t imagine the bands you mentioned above jamming together, so I had to listen to Type O Negative. Ok, I did listen to some of October Rust, and it seemed like blend between Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and Depeche Mode. While not exactly my style, I can see why this band would appeal to listeners. Like the Dandy Warhols, they take a lot of other bands’ styles and blend them into something uniquely their own. I don’t think I’m qualified to give them a proper review, but if you like, you could write a review and submit it the PO. Our editor’s pretty good about new submissions, and we’d love to have another voice. Just don’t try to take my job!

 
I'm a huge fan of Bif Naked, Jack Off Jill and SugarComa.... just wonderin if u know any other female band that are any good?

Dear Lora,
 
Honestly I’m not huge on Goth bands or Goth girl bands, mainly because they kind of frighten me. I’m more used to girl bands like the Go-Gos, the Bangles, Veruca Salt, Elastica, and the Breeders. You probably consider these bands “too wimpy,” though Veruca Salt and the Breeders may be closest to what you’re looking for. I listened to some music by the bands you mentioned above; Bif Naked kind of sounds like Garbage to me, while the others, well, I’m just not knowledgeable in this area. Other bands you might be interested in are Poe, L7, Seven Year Bitch, My Ruin, Tori Amos, and the much-maligned Hole. This is the best I can do.
