Personal Best by Team Dresch on Jealous Butcher Records

Team Dresch - Personal Best

JEALOUS BUTCHER RECORDS

  • £20.99


Team Dresch were Donna Dresch, Jody Bleyle, Kaia Wilson and Marcéo Martinez, and combining the brazenness of riot grrrl with the angst dirge of grunge, as well as indie-pop heart-thrills, they didn’t just raise the stakes of queercore in the mid-nineties, they created two near-perfect albums about longing, freedom, and belonging over guitar riffs as epic and intense as their poetic couplets. 

Originally released in 1995 on Chainsaw/Candy Ass Records, their debut album, Personal Best, roils with political rage, ecstatic love, familial worry, defiant joy. It is a call to arms for an army of lovers. To paraphrase their own song, they are amazing; their words save us.
