Not only has the role of the music journalist changed over the years but the typology of bands too; "being in a band" is taking on new meanings. It's contrary to and contrary about boys or girls and boys together in a gang, with one aim to climb that ladder to the top - all so phallocentric. Here's a link to my recent interview for the girls are with Good Sad Happy Bad, formerly Micachu And The Shapes, who talk about their constantly evolving relationship, and in the end, even band name.
