The Junior Varsity

0
A not half bad disc, assuming one has a sense of humor, (obviously no small assumption as so many of us seem to be lacking one), I would describe this as maybe something like (wait for it) "a "poor-man's Nikki & the Corvettes" (NEVER thought would describe ANYONE in that manner and it's really not even all THAT accurate). Peekaboo Records brings us The Junior Varsity's "Bam Bam Bam"

From Houston Texas we recieve the assembelage of drummer Matt Murillo, bassist/vocalist Kim Hammond, and guitarist/vocalist Rebecca Whitley, formerly of the Jewws (profiled here once, long long .....perhaps YOU were on of the 3 or so people who downloaded THAT one).....this one gives us fourteen tracks in a breezey twenty minutes, sacharine sweet, 50's influenced cutie-pie girly pop....this is NOT going to  everyone, but it does have a sort of new-wave twang to it, as well as some surf-guitar undertones.......I do recommend this, and if ya don't like it, hell, it'll be over before ya know it anyway......

The sort of title track (actually the song is called "Bam B B Bam Bam Bam"), "Poppa Burger", "So Great" and "Mark Lochridge Twist" are standouts, no classic by any means, and the comparison to Nikki is the best I can muster up.

I have apologize for being a stupid ass, I fucking FORGOT to post the links to the These Arms Are Snakes albums, and the fact that nobody even seemed to notice for a day or two reminds me once again of the very significant place in the universe that this blog occupies......so, to fans/readers of the blog (BOTH of ya), sorry and I'll get those hotly anticipated links up today! Try to contain your excitement!

Still striving for variety, and ALWAYS happy to try to honor any requests that you folks suggest......I'm by no means running low on material, I know I've been posting a BIT more sporadically than my previous strict once-a-day routine, but I've been preparing for retirement, trying to get everything figured out before naming the date and signing the papers (righ tnow looks like July or August, MAN that is not very long......scary and exciting all at once, 31 years and ready to go in a new direction......right now I am pretty much working for free, except for medical coverage, and I could get (no shit) a minimum wage job and combined with my pension be making MORE than I make now......
