Don't know Kaki King, I'm sure she's great, but the idea that the best guitarist not named Hendrix and best drummer of all time both come from the much smaller pool of female players seems likely to be more a you thing than a reality thing. Which is why I was pressing your buttons about grading on an XX curve.
To that point, my favorite pianist currently is Hiromi. I'm seeing her again this fall after her spring tour got cancelled due to a parasite. She also happens to be one of the more fierce players I can think of, no curve applied. Linked below
and psst, her drummer is one of the many "better" than the cow you are pimping, if such a thing as "better/best" can actually be quantified. Which it can of course provided you are a teenager or just baiting.
All trolling aside, I like Sleater-Kinney. They are a good band. I found them through Portlandia and don't remember the earlier thread you linked. I'm sure I listended back then but they must not of grabbed me, it took being a fan of the show to give them a harder look.
While it's not a genre I'm very familiar with they sound pretty original to me which is one of the more admirable things in my mind. They can also play their instruments which seems to be a rarity these days. I can't say I spin them often but I've listened enough to look into going to see them live several times. It's a shame they broke up and to your point, I don't think they'd be the same with a lesser drummer. What is happenning to their fall tour?
