The Dishrags were Western Canada's first all-female punk band. Made up of Jade Blade (guitar/vocals), Dale Powers (bass/vocals) and Scout (drums), The Dishrags put out two 45s in the late 70's and another 45 almost twenty years later. Nick Jones, singer of the Pointed Sticks, said that The Dishrags were an underrated punk band, "I mean, [The Dishrags] ran away from school at 16 to form that band. Nobody has any idea how much courage it took to do that, and their story is remarkable, and it’s untold. Aside from the fact that they put out a couple of really good singles.”

This is the video for their amazing song, "Past is Past". Today we're celebrating underrated girls in punk. Enjoy The Dishrags!
