Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes download album

Violent Femmes is the debut album by Violent Femmes. Mostly recorded in July 1982, the album was released by Slash Records on vinyl and on cassette in April 13, 1983, and on CD in 1987 with two extra tracks "Ugly" and "Gimme the Car".

The debut studio album from the Violent Femmes. It is considered the the band's biggest-selling album and their only release that went platinum by the RIAA, selling over a million copies. Although this album actually came out in April 1983, the "official" release date has apprently been called into confusion

One of the most distinctive records of the early alternative movement and an enduring cult classic, Violent Femmes weds the geeky, child-man persona of Jonathan Richman and the tense, jittery, hyperactive feel of new wave in an unlikely context: raw, amateurish acoustic folk-rock

Violent Femmes is the band’s debut album, released in April 1983 on Slash Records. Lead singer Gordon Gano was only 19 when the record came out – most of the songs were written while he was still in high school.

album: "Violent Femmes" (1982). Country Death Song I Hear the Rain Never Tell Jesus Walking On The Water I Know It's True but I'm Sorry to Say Hallowed Ground Sweet Misery Blues Black Girls It's Gonna Rain. album: "The Blind Leading The Naked" (1986).

This is the Violent Femmes debut album, and it is great. The Violent Femmes have released a total of nine albums and I own this and "Hallowed Ground. Out of the two I slightly prefer this. Some debut albums can be quite unorganized and sloppy, but this is a magnificent and a well done debut. The Violent Femmes music consists of catchy folk/punk tunes and that's about it. While these songs are catchy and fun to sing a long to, they are not dull. All of these songs have a great amount of emotion and the lyrics are depressing in most cases.

Genre: Alternative Rock.
