Sleater-Kinney

"Sleater-Kinney (pronounced SLAY'ter KIN'ee) was an indie rock trio originally from Olympia, Washington influenced by the riot grrrl movement of the 1990s. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the group's name is derived from Sleater-Kinney Road, Interstate 5 offramp #108 in Lacey, Washington, the location of one of their early practice spaces. The band emerged from the riot grrrl movement with their self-titled debut, Sleater-Kinney on Chainsaw Records in 1995. They followed this with Call the Doctor (1996) and Dig Me Out (1997). In 1998, the band recorded 'Big Big Lights', the first split single (with Cypher in the Snow) in the series of recordings dealing with women's self-defense entitled Free To Fight, and released on Candy Ass Records.

Their next few albums pushed the band towards mainstream listeners, culminating in 2002's One Beat. The band, however, remained fiercely faithful to their indie rock and feminist roots. Most of their albums since Call the Doctor have been released through the independent record label Kill Rock Stars. Their seventh album, The Woods, has been released on Sub Pop Records. The band was founded by Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein. Janet Weiss (of Quasi) has played drums since Dig Me Out. Previous drummers include Lora Macfarlane (who appeared on Sleater-Kinney and Call the Doctor), Misty Farrell and Toni Gogin.

On June 27, 2006, the band announced their indefinite hiatus from performing and recording."
