I've been listening to Hey Girl! for a while now, but my interest was sort of resparked when I read last summer's issue of Give Me Back last week- Katy Otto (who runs Exotic Fever and has played in bands like Del Cielo) sent us the summer & winter 2007 zines along with some EF records a few weeks ago (she helps put out GMB). The new issue should be coming out soon.
Back to Hey Girl! though... Hailing from San Francisco, Rashida, Rosie, & Naomi play dirty girl-punk. In their interview in GMB, they said they started a band because they decided Minor Section (a girl gang at SF punk shows) had to have a band... I wish we had that here-- a solid girl gang at shows & more girl-bands.
They put out their Spill Your Guts LP last May on Thrillhouse Records. Ten songs in under fourteen minutes. And one is a cover of "Always Be My Baby."
Listen to this and check out Give Me Back! Talk about gender & punk rock!
Hey Girl!- Spill Your Guts
Buy it from Thrillhouse
Apparently, we're just one degree apart as Rosie went to high school with Seph.
