Rackula 'All rock no c*ck'

All rock no c*ck; that's what this award winning band's music is all about. With stuff like best local band, best band name, best event of the year, and best recording. Is there anything this group of powerful women can't do? From the moment they take the stage they're already in your face. Kicking moshing tunes and punching out punk rock attitude. Like the Ramones, it's long songs played fast but like the Runaways without the Hollywood bullsh**.

So what are they doing differently? Well, these girls are not your average want to get famous rock band, they set out to be more then just that. Instead of making sales goals and career plans, their setting out to be positive role models, satisfying their fans and standing up for what they believe in. These girls are feminists, not your scary, man-hating ones. They're intelligent, capable women who can rock just as hard, if not harder then men. And they stand to inspire other women to pick up an instrument and pursue their dreams.

These girls live and work in the present. They focus on their fans rather than their career goals. Worrying about how many more t-shirts to make and having enough buttons and stickers to pass around. The majority of the fan base is in the Hamilton area, but their local margin is growing after every show they play. Making their domain to stretch out past Toronto into Oshawa and New Market. But not only do they want to take their music across canada, but they're also planning on going international.

But it's not all just about the music. These girls consider each other like sisters. And that's kind of how they run it back stage. They know what's going on in each other's lives and support one another. A close relationship is good to have with your band mates. These girls work it and it reflects in their presence on the stage.

This band is definitely something to check out. They have some upcoming shows on March 23rd at This Ain't Hollywood in Hamilton, and April 15th at Tomboos in New Market. If you can't make it out, you'll just have to do with the just as awesome recordings on myspace.
