Details of Sleater-Kinney and the Ticket Luck value
Sleater-Kinney originated from Olympia, Washington in the year 1994. The band got its name from a local freeway off-ramp, Sleater Kinney Road in Lacey, Washington. The band is arguably one of the most important feminist bands of the 1990s and the early 2000s, and a vital part of the riot girl movement. This three member band consists of Corin Tucker (singer and guitarist), Carrie Brownstein (singer and guitarist), and Janet Weiss (drummer).
Sleater-Kinney rose from the ashes of two bands, Excuse 17 and Heavens to Betsy. Corin Tucker from Heavens to Betsy and Carrie Brownstein from Excuse 17 met in 1992 and after some time created the band now known as Sleater-Kinney. However, at that time this band was just a side project for both of them. The two bands eventually disbanded, resulting in Sleater-Kinney being the sole focus for both the artists. In 1994, the first drummer of the band, Lora MacFarlane, joined them and together they recorded their first studio album, “Sleater-Kinney.”
The album was highly acclaimed by critics due to the band's thought provoking lyrics, intricate music and passionate vocals. The band released four more albums in the 90s, “Call the Doctor”, “Dig Me Out”, “The Hot Rock” and “All Hands on the Bad One”. The release of “Call the Doctor” brought the band mainstream attention. They were all over the media as their recent release addressed issues like gender inequality and consumerism. Carrie Brownstein praised the band by saying: "Sleater-Kinney are brave enough and strong enough to make a difference and get the word out.”
The band has released a total of seven studio albums and their eighth album is set to be released in January, 2015. The album “Call the Doctor” elevated the band and cemented its position as an influential music phenomenon. Their next album “Dig Me Out” became a success and appeared on several magazines' top albums list. It sold more than sixty-four thousand copies.
The band's first album to appear on the Billboard charts was “The Hot Rock.” The band's fifth album, “All Hands on the Bad One”, was nominated in the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Awards for Outstanding Music Album. The album sold more than seventy-three thousand copies. It reached 177the on the Billboard 200 and number twelve on the Heatseeker Albums Chart.
Their next album, “One Beat” is their most highly acclaimed record, and reached number 2 on the Heatseekers chart and number five on the Top Independent Albums Charts. The last album the band released was “The Woods” and it upped the ante once again. The album portrayed the political scenario of the 2000s and gave a powerful message. The album reached number eighty on the Billboard 200 chart, their highest ever position. In the year 2006, the band announced they were going on an indefinite hiatus. They last appeared as a band at the Crystal Ballroom, Oregon in August 2006.
Some of the famous songs by Sleater-Kinney are “I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone”, “The Size of Our Love”, “You're No Rock n' Roll Fun”, “Step Aside” and “Modern Girl.”The lead vocalist of the band, Corin Tucker revealed that she intentionally kept her voice harsh during a song to send a stronger message and receive greater attention from the audience. AllMusic critic, Heather Phares, described Tucker's vocals as love them or hate them vocals.
In late 2014, the band announced a new studio album “No Cities to Love” to be released in January 2015 followed by a tour that hits North America and Western Europe.
