BBC Review

From thumping opener, Zero Zero, to cute ballad, Pantomime, the debut long player from Australian five-piece Operator Please is a delight. Think The Go! Team with more audible lyrics, or Los Campesinos with a thick layer of pop gloss. Most of the tracks possess the instant familiarity that should belong to all good pop tunes, with the emphasis is firmly placed on fun.

The latest single, Get What You Want, is a highlight, with confident riffs, lyrics like ''I wish I could feed you some Ritalin so maybe I could get a reaction'' and lead singer Amandah's shouty, shouty vocals, culminating in a squeal near the end.

Other favourites include title track Yes Yes Vindictive, Ghost, and Just A Song About Ping Pong; the song which brought the band to most people's attention. In this, Amandah sings so fast her nasal voice is not dissimilar to Bart Simpson, and such a ridiculous title deserves such quality lines as ''you know beef jerky has an aftertaste''.

This isn't to say that every track is a winner. At times some songs may feel repetitive, while others veer off the pop track from bouncy into bland. Other Song makes you yearn for the yelping again, and it would make a suitable soundtrack to a relationship bust-up in Heartbreak High.

With Aussie soap operas in mind, let's use the word 'sassy' to describe Amandah's vocals. Despite its limitations, her voice is perky and petulant, achieving some depth amidst the sweeping violin in Pantomime at the album's close.

Ultimately, Yes Yes Vindictive is the kind of album that makes you wish you could see the band live. Operator Please have created some unashamedly sunny music that is not completely polished, but sparkling nonetheless. --Jenny Nelson

From the moment that I first heard Amandah Wilkinson shrieking "I've been doing your DIRTY LAUNDRY" on album opener, 'Zero Zero', I knew I was listening to something pretty special. It wasn't just her voice (coming in somewhere between Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Courtney Love in her Hole heyday). Nor was it Wilkinson's huuuuge riffs, nor Taylor Henderson's jaunty violin, not even Sarah Gardiner's Killers-esque synths. No, this was something else. This was the sound of a band who just seem to click. Quite simply, Operator Please make sense.

And I've listened to pretty much nothing else for a fortnight. 'Yes Yes Vindictive' is an astonishing album for a band who only formed a couple of years ago on the Gold Coast of Australia in order to enter their school's Battle Of The Bands competition, and who are all still young enough that none of them were alive when Kylie and Jason first hit our UK TV screens. It's a slice of fizzing Aussie pop-punk-rock sunshine, and it's completely engrossing from start to finish.

Current single, 'Get What You Want' bubbles up to the boil as Wilkinson breathes "I wish I could feed you some Ritalin so maybe I could get a reaction or maybe even some facial expression", but it's the third track, 'Leave It Alone' that seems to be the statement of intent. The violins get more forceful, more danceable, and the chorus bursts through, and sticks. I've had that chorus in my head for a fortnight now. I can't get rid of it, but I'm not sure I want to. 'Leave It Alone' is an immense indie-pop song, not far from Rilo Kiley, yet commercial enough to have the potential to be a chart-topper, no hyperbole.

Saw these guys completely by chance on Jools Holland's TV show the other evening - and they totally stole the show. It was hard to stay seated on the couch. I rarely buy any music these days, but the enthusiam Operator Please put in to thier music on the show was such that I felt obliged to give them my money by buying this excellent album (at my age this feels similar to giving my kids pocket money). The CD its worth the money just for the chance to jump around your living room to "Get What You Want" - and every other track on the album is peach too.

Keep up the good work Operator Please!

I first came across Operator Please when they appeared on 'Later... With Jools Holland'. As soon as I saw they were a scarily young indie/rock band with a violinist, I didn't think they'd be up to much but they totally stole the show! Despite my initial prejudices, the violin hooks work quite spectacularly, especially when blasted out along with enthusiastic guitar riffs & synths. The overall result is a very unique sound.

As a debut goes, it's excellently produced, with 12 strong, unique tracks. The highlight for me is the 3rd song, which may only be 'Just A Song About Ping Pong' but I still can't get it out of my head! And I guess ping pong is a metaphor for life in a lot of ways... Hmmm...

Bought this peach on my latest amazon spree on the strength of B.Graham's review above having never heard of them before.
On first listen i thought it was pretty good; from the subsequent 20 listenings i think it's awesome.
I'd put Operator Please up there with The Grates for my favourite Aussie export.
From the funk of the base line in 'Get what you want' to the pure sing-a-long joy of 'Leave it alone' this album keeps you interested, buzzing and hoping for more. Im yet to download the two bonus tracks available with the CD from the website, but i can only imagine that they are as good as the rest.
I looking forward to the night i hear 'Just a song about ping pong' in a club; it was made for dancing!

Girl fronted indie-punk bands are like buses: you wait ages for them and then two come along at once. Be Your Own Pet turned some heads when they released their debut album back in 2006, and those eagerly awaiting their follow-up album may find themselves pleasantly surprised by the release of not just the one BYOP LP, but also the near coinciding release of Operator Please's debut record, Yes Yes Vindictive.

This album delivers all of the punchy avant-punk-pop of BYOP, but in a package so sleek and smooth that it could bear the words `Made In California' emblazoned upon it. California gloss it may have, but you may be pleased to hear that this is by no means a Californian interpretation of the punk genre: this is very much what Londoners and New Yorkers associate with the word punk: savvy, punchy, angular, avant garde, and too smart for its own good.

This record is set to be a stone-cold killer across the globe. They have a near-perfect mix or avant-punk and pop sensibility (complete with tweecore gang vocals). The precocious teenagers rattle through tracks like "It's Just A Song About Ping Pong" at a startling pace of both music and vocals, and with consummate ease, and throw in Irish-tinged strings to surprisingly good effect. This may incline towards pop a little too much for many - they certainly haven't got the raw, reckless abandon of Be Your Own Pet - and if they get very big, they could quickly become irritating, plus the record does run out of steam in a few places, but that's true of most things, eh? Give it a shot, ye flaming galahs!
