Something Vaginal – Dick Pics

They were like an ephemeral piece of revolutionary propaganda. They appeared on the scene, they made their presence known, but they weren’t meant to last for too long. The four young womxn that formed Something Vaginal, still in their teens, hanged with the loudest and most aggressive bands in the OC. Though there is a temptation to liken them to Bikini Kill and Kathleen Hannah, that band was fronted by a white, college-educated feminist. This band was rawer, more primal, and incorporated color into their set bringing a different dimension to punk music. For the brief moment that they existed as a band, it left an impression.
