Baba Yaga

Baba Yaga were an all-female crusty doom band from Seattle in the late '90s. They eventually evolved into the band Grey. As far as I know, this tape is the only thing Baba Yaga managed to get out. Just two songs, but they are roughshod primitive doom at its finest, particularly "Stoner Bitch." This is rare.
