Dear Reader:

Today is another Music Saturday.

Music Saturday is when I try to hold my tongue on politics and take time to listen to the music of our lives.  Or thinly veil my politics amidst that music.

I grew up having been an out Feminine Protesting M-F Transsexual child during the 1950s and the 1960s.  The 1970s were key in my Transition; I began my adult Transition in 1974 (at age 18) – the next natural step.  Very emotional was the accompanying soundtrack of that decade.

Today’s Post here comes about elsewhere from a recent Facebook Post and subsequent Comments.

Contribute to the playlist.  Add your own here.  Or post and share to your own web-site or social media page.

Enjoy!

I had inspiration and needed time to work on it – to find the music on-line, decide what seemed applicable.

I am releasing this ‘Public’ on Saturday.

Kapung Khaf.  Thank you, Alana.

Question:

This is more of a relaxed question. What music bands have Non-binary vibes? I know Hozier has the title of Lesbian Jesus, King Princess has the NB vibe to me but I wanted to make a playlist for fun!

*

My Answer:

This will go back to the 1970s.

Tom Robinson Band as much broke those molds.  They were hard core LGBT in a time when most anything as that was certainly not given any radio station airplay, still all but forbidden, and commonly illegal even at open ‘Liberal’ Western society.

Against Me is amongst today’s more well known bands with a Trans member.

Laura Jane Grace is the band’s leader.

I previously composed an essay here and at my web-site about her band and her.

Sharon Nichols:

I honestly never realized that because I only heard one song on the radio in like 2007.  I’m re-back into the band now. I remember why I liked them – their sound is kick ass!

I think she may not have been out at that point. I loved them when younger and was pleasantly surprised to hear about Laura Jane later on.

*

We are missing the most obvious answer: Mother Mother !!

*

Mother Mother and My Chemical Romance have already been said, but they definitely. Some Linkin Park feels very enby to me (though that might be because I’m enby and they’re my favorite band 😅) I believe the lead singer of Worriers is actually nonbinary, and they have a song called They/Them/Theirs that slaps. Of Monsters and Men has some nonbinary vibes to me, but again, that might be me projecting.

That being said, I think a good place to look would be on the alternative side of music. A popular theme among those genres is a feeling of being misunderstood/not fitting in, which relates to a lot of nonbinary folks’ experience

*

Stress Fractures has (at least) 2 Non-binary members! They are great!

*

Placebo are a go to for me, Eurythmics obviously too, Queen, Bowie & Prince of course too.

The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing have an enby guitarist, and I’ll second Against M.
