the power of pussy


i spent my sunday relaxing after a full saturday of bands at the public square show that was moved to the inside/outside gallery on account of the all day rain that moved in after an above average warm week. i'll post something about that saturday but while i was busy relaxing around my apartment in sweats and a sweater listening to the stereo with the browns game on TV i found my "bongwater" CD "power of pussy". it has been a handful of years since i've listened to this CD so i put it on repeat for about 4 hours while i did work on projects that needed done on my computer.
ann magnuson is in my opinion the genius of bongwater and "the power of pussy" highlights her talent via magnuson's writing of some very intelligent lyrics without being overly pretentious. magnuson is an accomplished actor as well as a feminist that has no problem "calling out" fellow actors, artists, musicians, anarchists and others using lyrics and prose over layers of sounds provided by mark kramer. magnuson was overshadowed somewhat by her bandmate/boyfriend guitarist "kramer" until "the power of pussy" and her acting career took off in the early 90s.
bongwater ended as a band in a bitter breakup after the couples relationship ended.
this CD is perfect for a "stay-home" sunday afternoon while you have an NFL game on of two bad football teams..
