Sleater-Kinney: The Garage, London
Everett True, Melody Maker, 8 May 1999
"BUT SHE sounds just like Cher," my companion beseeches me, as Sleater-Kinney run through the fine, staccato 'The End Of You' — Corin Tucker's voice a bewitching melange of barely compressed, tightly strung vowels, Carrie Brownstein's guitar a brittle, lively blur. Around me, people chatter subdued — slightly taken aback by the sheer ferocity of the noise emanating from the three slight girls onstage, by the sudden squawls and bursts of sound. My companion is having none of it, though.
