Lillix Frustrated By Stereotypes About Girl Groups

bassist Louise Burns spoke with Ryan Allen of Get Real Detroit and asked what frustrates them most as a band. “It’s pretty frustrating when someone comes to the show and expects to see us lip sync and not play our instruments,” Burns said. “I think music is coming to its lowest point ever when people can’t understand what a fu*king band is anymore. People are like, ‘Oh they’re girls. They must not play their own instruments.’ I mean, what the fu** is that? It’s sexism and it’s wrong. I think when they come to our live shows it changes their mind.”

    maybe I’m wrong… but since when was “sexism” a word… I thought it was “sexist”

    Then they should tell the same people that cause this so-called Stereotype.

    Oh give me a break. No one thinks women can’t play instruments or sing. That’s not a stereotype that has ever existed in the modern western world. Bessie Smith was a blues legend a century ago. Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday were stars in the heavens of the world of jazz in the 1920s. And then Patsy Kline, June Carter, Diana Ross and the Supremes and every girl group popular in the 1950’s and 60’s like The Chordettes and The Shirelles and The Crystals.

    Do I have to point it out any more chronologically? Janis Joplin to Gloria Gaynor to Joan Jett and… jesus christ.

    It’s not even a trend in modern times. I’d prove it but I’m sick of pointing out obvious examples. Maybe Lillix can bother learning something in their spare time instead of speaking out of their asses in insipid interviews.

    Maybe the people who say these things saw their music videos, like I did, and just assumed a bunch of talentless girls wanted to dress like school girl sluts and put on that persona, with instruments around them as a backdrop. After hearing their dull as wood pop sound I might have made the same mistake.
