Female-fronted punk + post-punk: weird, aggressive, and dark music all made by women.

On this week's episode, La Lengua and DJ Ashtray bring you the very best of female-fronted punk, noise, post-punk, garage and experimental music from Japan! Featuring by-the-song updates with Fruits-esque Harajuku punk style. We also heart Australia. Ashtray gives a shout-out to some of our listeners in Australia, while Lengua just shouts out Foster's beer.

Also, guest DJ Travis joins us in the studio, adding some fabulous recommendations for other Japanese music and pointing out the fact that the Sheena and the Rokkets song "Omae Ga Oshi" is actually a Stooges cover. (1970, not 1969, you PHILISTINE!)
