Baebe

July 30th, 2006 | brainjuice

So Friday we crossed the country to Berkeley Castle, where we attended a small private banquet whose high point was a performance by the Medieval Baebes. Somewhere, I have the first record by Miranda Sex Garden, Katharine Blake’s first band, from 1990 or thereabouts. Sadly, Blake wasn’t at the banquet performance, having apparently been suddenly taken ill with a pregnancy complication. My daughter loves the Baebes — the music, but also that they’re obviously smart and educated and yet plainly are women who do not get out of bed early in the morning if they can help it. She could do a lot worse for female role models.

  1. Damn right she could. Also (obviously) their music kicks tons of ass.

  2. I miss Miranda Sex Garden. They were ferocious live, too.

  3. Wait, what?

    You have a daughter?!

  4. Man, I remember Miranda Sex Garden. They kicked ass.

    No matter how you’re bringing your girl up, you are obviously doing something right. So, can we expect the next Warren Ellis book to be on Parenting ?

    “How to educate your children and make them respectable members of society.” Also included with the first printing, “34 ways to skin a dog.”

  6. ooh! i remember seeing them live in halifax 7 years ago. it was a really great experience.
    could be worse, she could have hillary clinton for role model *snicker*

  7. Miranda Sex Garden is quality music. I’ll have to track down this other record that you speak of.

  8. I have a “Babes” CD that I like to listen to a couple of times a month. They’re pretty good!
