The Dishrags may very well be the first all-women punk rock group in North America. Formed in 1976 in Victoria and later relocating to Vancouver, the Dishrags played Vancouver’s first-ever punk rock gig and went on to bump elbows with the Clash, the Ramones, the Avengers, and countless others. Three features 20 songs – the trio’s entire studio output (3-song single, plus 2 songs for Vancouver Complication), 1 rare live track, and 14 high-quality soundboard recordings.
“A killer piece of Canadian punk history.”
– Gregory Adams, Exclaim!
“Various unreleased studio recordings as well as some good quality live recordings (including their opening slot for the Clash in 1979). It’s raw, primal punk that sounds amazing!” – Ty Stranglehold, Razorcake
“This is an essential release for anyone who cares about first-generation Vancouver punk, all-girl rock bands, or early punk in general.” – Allan MacInnis, The Georgia Straight
