GROODIES, THE: Self-titled: CD

This is punk that’s too hardcore to be poppy, but has too many hooks to be hardcore. It’s tight and full of energy and not unlike the Lunachicks, but they manage to mix up their song tempos a bit more and rock a little harder. A pretty good first effort. They’re awfully talented for how young they are (I don’t think any of them are old enough to drink), and they show a lot of promise. Keep your eyes open for these ladies.
