Olivia ... yeah, I guess, but she was pretty well a product.

Just noticed there's not too many women in these lists ... hmm, All woman band, The Party Girls, played hard pop rock http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAaT8P5kVD0. My old band supported them one time and their crew was awesome - they really looked after us and we never sounded so good. The band were nice too.

Melbourne indie band (PFOG's territory) The Go Betweens had a woman drummer, Lindy Morrison http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pq1s6FCEoZM

Back to the boys, Jeff Lang is arguably our most talented blues guitarist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvTiTICBI2M ... I've seen this lineup play and, while they noodle like crazy, they noodle very, very well.

Has anyone heard of Alex Lloyd? He was pretty big for a while. He started out in a band called Mother Hubbard, who sounded like Pearl Jam before Pearl Jam did. Trivia: the sister of an ex partner was friends with their drummer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdmUucJyugg
