In Sleater-Kinney frontwoman Carrie Brownstein’s sharp, funny new memoir Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl, she writes about her high school band Born Naked: “We didn’t take ourselves too seriously, almost as a means of warding off any potential criticism. If we thought of Born Naked as a joke, then no one could make fun of us. We were in on it.”
Below, listen to a clip of Brownstein reading about Born Naked from her audiobook. And as a bonus — she even sings the band’s signature song, “You Annoy Me,” which happens to be one of the first songs she ever wrote.
Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl will be released Tuesday, Oct. 27.[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/230153957" params="color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
