Bryde is used to being compared to certain Alternative Rock acts of the nineties – namely, PJ Harvey and Smashing Pumpkins. So, with that in mind ,and to accompany the live session of her Grunge-y song ‘Less’ the acts that influenced her formative years as a songwriter – the acts, she says, you Need to acquaint yourself with (if you’re too young to have known them the first time around).


Sarah’s top of your Ten Women of the 90s playlist?
PJ Harvey! ‘Rid of Me’ is what I’ve aspired to ever since I first heard it – it’s so visceral. Also check out ‘Dress’, ‘Down By the Water’, ’50 Ft Queenie’, ‘Joe’ and ‘Sheela-Na-Gig’.
One of my other favourites next when I discovered Tori Amos..
I bought a cassette of her third album, Boys for Pele, during my school French exchange, and it literally changed my life! Then I discovered ‘Crucify’ – the first track from her debut album..
That’s my favourite Tori song too! Alongside ‘Northern Lad’..Then there was L7 – ‘Pretend We’re Dead’..
Well, if you haven’t heard about the time Donita Sparks pulled out a used tampon and threw it into the crowd at Reading Festival (in 1992), you have now. Enough said.

Also some Riot grrrl bands next?
Bikini Kill! Before Dream Wife, there was Kathleen Hanna. But if, like me, you were too young to fully embrace the Riot grrrl movement at the time, dive into a Bikini Kill album immediately.
En Vogue. Classic. Why ‘Don’t Let Go (Love)’?

Over halfway through – which brings us to Alanis Morrisette – ‘Forgiven’..
why Alanis is on this list, go and watch her sing ‘You Oughta Know‘ (Hyde Park, 1996) with Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins on drums! When I was much younger, I thought I’d never be a singer because I couldn’t sing as high as Alanis. So every time my parents went out, I’d try and sing along to Jagged Little Pill – I think it was quite painful for the neighbours!
Hole – ‘Doll Parts’. I remember jumping on my bed to it! I thought Courtney Love was so cool, because she went to fancy LA parties with chipped nail varnish! My first-ever band learnt ‘Celebrity Skin’ and played it three times at one gig.
The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. I loved that album. ‘Ex-Factor’ will always be a classic.
Garbage. Shirley Manson was a Huge icon for aspiring female musicians.
And finally, Björk! a genius, in my opinion. Not only is she one of the world’s best producers, but she captures human emotion like no one else. And she’s been making music for over forty years. I bought the CD single of ‘Hyperballad’ and listened to it a million times. Vespertine is one of my top five albums of all time.
thats a great collection of Inspiration it’s a great list!
