Autoclave

indie rock/mathrock, USA

Autoclave was a short-lived all-female indie rock band based in Washington, D.C. Formed in the summer of 1990, the group consisted of Christina Billotte (vocals and electric bass guitar), Mary Timony (electric guitar and vocals), Nikki Chapman (electric guitar and vocals), and Melissa Berkoff (drum set). The group became known for their intelligent, slightly off-kilter brand of rock, which featured the use of compound and changing meters, thus affiliating them with the “math rock” movement. In 1991 they released a self titled album. The group broke up in May 1991, with Timony joining Helium and Billotte forming Slant 6.

  2. Thanks for this blog and keeping awareness of Autoclave and the two mega-talented budding superstars that were the cornerstones of that 1991 band alive. I never tire of listening to this album in its entirety, Though the subsequent bands of both these artists have been excellent, their one Autoclave album touches me most deeply in my soul, A very special outside-the-box sound, right up there with some of the best of Captain Beefheart & the Magic band IMO.
