You are venturing into territory that will undoubtedly set this list aflame. Certainly you realize the JBC have been around nearly as long as the Femmes. Personally I think Gano and co. have made a nice transition from adolescent folk-rockers to middle-age folk rockers. Your comparison to the Pistols is way off the mark. The Femmes have been a group on and off (mostly on) for the last 20 years (again, very much like the JBC). The Pistols were a feat of contrived media engineering from the very beginning (not that there's anything wrong with that). I'd buy tickets to a JBC/VF show in a second. Thrown in CVB and it might just be a perfect evening.
