SAHARA HOT NIGHTS: Jennie Bomb: CD

Being from Sweden, this all girl outfit has benefited from having a Hives connection. It’s interesting how other countries absorb American culture. There’s a definite Suzy Quatro influence here but also quite a bit of ’80s arena pop/metal. The songs basically rock and have the kind of themes you’d expect to find on a Runaways record (or the earliest Donnas record, for that matter) such as “Alright Alright (Here’s My Fist Where’s the Fight?).” More of a garage influence may have made this more palatable. –Bob Cantu
