    Girl trouble - Rock and roll is still a man's, man's, man's, man's world

    Trees was packed that night, and you couldn't help but wonder whether the club would have been quite so packed if the band on stage, Sleater-Kinney, were made up of three men instead of three women. Drummer Janet Weiss was capable but not great, suff...
