“Can’t decide what clothes to wear
Typical girls are sensitive
Typical girls are emotional
Typical girls are cruel and bewitching
She’s a femme fatale
Typical girls stand by their man
Typical girls are really swell
Typical girls learn how to act shocked
Typical girls don’t rebel
Who invented the typical girl?
Who’s bringing out the new improved model?
And there’s another marketing ploy
Typical girl gets the typical boy.”
Dostoyevsky Wannabe co-founder Victoria Brown’s regular girl-groups, girls in bands, solo girl musicians piece.
The title of this section is inspired by Sam Knee’s new book of photographs Untypical Girls which you can (and should) buy here. Sam’s title is obviously a nod to The Slits ironic classic ‘Typical Girls’ which is sung regularly around the DW switchboard and which you should watch on YouTube here (ignore whatever advert plays before it) before signing this petition in the hope that The Slits get the royalties that they never got and which they are due.
