BARBIE ARMY: Barbies Don’t Bleed: Retrospective 1986-1990: 7”

Sep 22, 2022

A collection of everything that 1980s Chicago darlings Barbie Army put out in their short but notable run, this EP is a great addition to the history of punk and especially of women in punk. Bridging classic Ramones with riot grrrl, Barbie Army’s sound is assertive and classic without being derivative. It’s a pleasure to be able to access these songs relatively easily now that Berlin-based No Plan Records has put out this retrospective on a 7”. Excellent work, folks! –Theresa W. (No Plan)
