Performer Notes:

  • Sleater-Kinney: Corin Tucker (vocals, guitar, drums); Carrie “Carrie Brownstein” Kinney (vocals, guitar); Lora Macfarlane (vocals, guitar, drums).
  • Personnel: Corin Tucker (vocals, guitar); Carrie Kinney (guitar); Lora MacFarlane (drums).
  • Audio Remasterer: Greg Calbi.
  • Recording information: 09/1995.
  • Sleater-Kinney’s masterful sophomore effort Call the Doctor fulfills all the promise of the group’s debut and more, forging taut melodicism and jaw-dropping sonic complexity out of barbed-wire emotional potency. The emergence of Carrie Brownstein as an equal shareholder in Corin Tucker’s vision is the key — her four contributions (particularly “Stay Where You Are” and “I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone”) are stellar, while her harmonies complete Tucker’s equally superb lead turns by reading between the lines to verbalize the naked aggression at the core of the songs’ polemic power. Forget the riot grrrl implications inherent in the trio’s music — Call the Doctor is pure, undiluted punk, and it’s brilliant. ~ Jason Ankeny

Professional Reviews: Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.63) – Included in Rolling Stone’s “Essential Recordings of the 90’s.”

Rolling Stone (6/13/96, p.82) – 4 Stars (out of 5) – “…use bratty power punk as a springboard into broader sounds and ideas….Tucker and Brownstein sing about internal girl frustration…while the…accessible music rails with a menacing edge. Tucker’s voice is distinctive…and intense, but she’s not so serious that she can’t have fun…”

Spin (1/97, p.59) – Ranked #18 on Spin’s list of the “20 Best Albums of ’96.”

Spin (3/96, pp.111-112) – 8 (out of 10) – “…vital….[It] trades sex-worker role-playing, doll parts, gender-bending, and other common female-rock tropes for stories of everyday struggle…[and] proves that punk still offers new ways to say no…”

Option (7-8/96, p.131) – “…cuts through layers of grrrlish hype to reach the heart of the DIY punk ethos….should be required listening for every pubescent girl in need of an ego lift….Sleater-Kinney rocks the so-called indie competition right off the Richter scale.”

Village Voice (2/25/97) – Ranked #3 in the Village Voice’s 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics’ Poll.

New York Times (Publisher) (6/2/96, Sec.2, p.28) – “…Ms. Tucker…has a sharp, rich voice that vibrates with yearning and defiance. The band’s chief asset may actually be its guitar work: Carrie Bronstein’s staccato riffs lead Ms. Tucker’s distorted chords in a dizzying call and response…”
