Sounds like what the Mystery Girls might have sounded like had they been really into the Dictators—songs about jailbait, smokin’ dope, dirt, anti-depressants, and apemen, delivered unto us in a lowish-fi, almost Freestone-esque rock via punk via rock via punk via rock methodology. If you pretend that these songs are all lost Killed By Death era numbers, it works a lot better than trying to speculate on whether they’re like the new Red Cross or something like that. Kinda cool, but could use a few more hits. Perhaps they could page Annette? BEST SONG: “Dirt (My Best Friend)” BEST SONG TITLE: “Teenage Is The Stone-Age” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The CD version has a black & red cover; the LP has the same cover art, but orange and green. Score one for the digital revolution, i think.
