Does Boris count? I'm not sure I would say Wata fronts the band but I also wouldn't say that she doesn't.
i wrestled with this a bit as well. couldn't decide!

The Vaselines
so fun fact. i bump into frances from the vaselines fairly regularly to the point where we're on first name basis and have the odd chat. she doesn't live too far from where i live and she cycles a lot so i see her when i'm out on my bike from time to time. she also runs a yoga studio.

I don’t even know if I’d have anything to say if I met her. Not in the sense “oh my gosh ahh!!”, but more like, “I don’t know you as a person, but I think your music makes this world a better place so, have a great day, I guess?” I once bought a shirt at an Acid King show and it was Lori who sold it to me (she’s very chill and down to earth) and I just smiled and didn’t say anything. I mean, it was kinda special, but I’m sure she didn’t need to hear another guy point out how good their latest record was.

Can't resist jumping in here to mention that I drove Frances to Edinburgh for her Iyengar Yoga teaching certification assessment. (My ex did yoga teacher training alongside her.)

Further proof that everyone knows everyone in Glasgow....

I just thought that it may be a fun idea to create a thread for random pictures with the musicians / celebrities that the OSGers run into (if there isn’t one already).

I'm surprised that it took over 3 pages before Deep Sea Diver to show up, and I don't think I've yet seen Japanese Breakfast on any of these lists either!!! Truthfully, good music is good music, but I've always preferred female singers.

Alvvays
Shiny Toy Guns
Deep Sea Diver
Japanese Breakfast
The Raveonettes (dual front-people)
Covet
Beach House
Head And The Heart
Snail Mail
Jessica Lea Mayfield
Lacrymosa (though more of a single artist)
Land Of Talk
Lily Allen
Lindsey Stirling
Nero
Nicole Atkins
Of Monsters And Men (dual front-people)
Paramore
Pickup Switching Mad Scientist

And many more.

What a fine list, blacktiger, seems like the Breeders/Amps would be a possible omission?
I need to listen to them more. I only recently listened to the one with “Cannonball” all the way through, and I liked it a lot.

First band that comes to my mind is Skunk Anansie. Then I’d say PJ Harvey and Daisy Chainsaw. Not necessarily all in that order though.
