It's taken two decades for most people to catch up to Team Dresch, the prickly political four-piece that were pivotal in the '90s queercore movement. That's not to say everything's been peachy-keen since the release of their impassioned and perfect 1994 debut LP, Personal Best. Far from it. Let's just say they got the ball... err, the massive boulder rolling as far as opening up the discussion on women's issues and what it is to be queer in a homophobic society. It would have been easy to beat it over people's heads with pure punk-rock rage, but there's always been an elegance to Team Dresch's music. After going on hiatus in the late '90s, the band reunited for Homo-a-Go-Go in 2004. Team Dresch is still performing, and showing that they're just as—if not more—important now as they were 20 years ago. MARK LORE
