4.0 out of 5 stars being british in music doesn't mean singing in american, 15 Jun 2003
This review is from: The End of a Beautiful Career (Audio CD)
i am so proud of this debut album that i have worn out my tape copy and soon i'll be wearing out the cd... it's fun, punky, experimental, cheeky, clever, loud and damn well British
no there are no american accents when these girls sing, and no there are no boring topics on the songs just damn good music-featuring recorders, trumpets and a guest vocal from a child... i love this album
starting with the excellent opener of 'all i can see' a song about a blind girl who's boyfrined cheats on her... with a smash of guitars and the sneering angelic chorus of 'you tell me my eyes are green but baby all i can see is red....'
what i loved most about the album was it's ablitiy to sound like it was live recorded the instruments are not over produced the vocals are raw and it makes you want to sing along badly
the atmosphere of 'sea shanty' feels like your underwater with hormomic vocals and i dare you not to wat to sing along to 'why did you let my kitten die?' a whole 3 minutes of joy retelling whistle down the wind in a few lines, it's a cult classic that sticks to the inside of your ear
some bad points...
well it's a short album, it does make you want more which is not so bad i guess
i think 'bring her head back to me' (alice in wonderland reference) is not on my favourites list-but still a damn good track if not just because of the clever use of trumpets...
i'm a girl rock fan, i adore Hole and the breeders so i'd recomend it to you if you have similar tastes... or if your into a little experiemtal punk, and i'd also recomend it if you liked Pulp around the 'common people' time and Elastica...
pitty that the follow up wasn't as good but i kinda blame that on the american producers... darn them... still worth getting if your addicted to this album :)
which i think you might soon be

5.0 out of 5 stars The best band from Lancaster release best Lancaster EP, 26 Jun 2001
By 
This review is from: The End of a Beautiful Career (Audio CD)
Wish someone from Britain made great punk/pop songs like those Americans can, but with more class? Well these 4 girls from Lancaster are sure to be big if they keep up this kind of lively punky brilliance. The Pixies-inspired band mix angelic vocals with razor sharp guitars and a barrel full of adrenalin. The 7 strong collection of singalong classics includes Steve Lamacq favourite 'Why Did You Let My Kitten Die?' and will get in your head so far it'll never get out. Buy it. Buy it now. I promise you won't regret it.
