Tina Bell: Unsung Goddess of Grunge

View descriptionShare

Bam Bam was a Black woman-fronted grunge band in Seattle in the early 80s—before grunge was a defined genre. Larry Mizell Jr. tells the story of Bam Bam and the life of frontwoman Tina Bell. He also explores why we’ve never heard of this group before and why their story has been erased from Seattle music history.

Then, KEXP Audioasis DJ and The Black Tones frontwoman Eva Walker leads a panel of fellow Black musicians to react to Bam Bam’s music and story and discuss the landscape for Black rockers in Seattle’s music scene today.
