We did this K7 to support a women-squat project [‘frauen-infoladen (women’s infoshop) ‘Degu Tante’] in Luzern [Switzerland]. It was a tough job to find only girls-bands. From a few we (Dani & me) didn’t really get any information, there was one who just send us 2 songs and the band-name for example. Our band ‘Re-Sisters‘ history started with this compilation. We just initiated it as a project for the compilation and were asked for a gig so we did 4 or 6 more songs…

All the bands don’t exist anymore and I have lost all contact with most of the girls. Elianna and me put it together, and Gavin [Maitland] ([guitarist] of the [Swiss] band ‘Sacchi Per Rifiuti’, who plays with ‘Rams’ now) ‘mastered’ it. We’re totally happy for you to use it. [The tape was distributed in the late 90s by Emancypunx from Warsaw, Poland.]


I started Emancypunx around ‘97/’98 The first release was a licensed re-release of the all-girl compilation-tape ‘Donna Wetter’, originally released by Rotzgör recs, a small tape-label of the band ‘Re-Sisters’ from Switzerland. I heard that tape for the first time on an anti-nuclear women’s camp in Germany and was totally amazed. It was exciting to see so many new European all-girl bands play really angry punk rock with a radical feminist message. It was finally a loud voice resisting the traditional role of the subordinated, sweet, nice female.

Readers can support Emancypunx by ordering a hard copy of the tape – It’s still available!
