Advantages: Timeless and simply groundbreaking
Disadvantages: None for me

...Riding on the crest of a DIY wave of punk and alternative musicians, the all woman The Raincoats arrived in the late 1970’s and quickly carved a small but indelible mark onto the tree of music. Saving Kurt Cobain I like The Raincoats as they al ...
