This is some of the very best writing on Patti I've ever read, Anna and Dave! Big thanks to both of you! This will send me back to her complete box set from the 90s to play while I work today. I love both the bright and open beginner's view and the music master's discerning historical placement. Spot on!

Great post, Mike! And these works are brilliantly subversive and caustically inspiring, artistically far beyond the sugary, fast-paced covers of Top 40 and commercial rock songs pop punk bands would make a boring trend of through the 90s. A whole world of difference.
