This review is from: Boo Hoo Hoo (Audio CD)
Having heard Boo Hoo Hoo on the Classic Rock cover disc, realised it was a stone cold class being fresh, inventive and funny, I had to here what else they could do. Not regrets at all, a solid blues rock record with a fresh sound, it will keep me happy for a couple of weeks.
The bluesy rock'n'roll music provides a very effective vehicle for the big story here, which is of course Colleen Rennision's voice, a husky Joplinesque power house that can kill a man at 100 paces. Or maybe not but you get the idea.
Best song on the album is Devil On My Back, a bit Black Keys at first but swells into something quite wonderful.
Its not all at that standard however, a few of the songs give you the feeling that they are perhaps unfinished. But overall this is a good record.
The worst thing is the cover, a cheap photo which is sexist. I have no idea why the band allowed it. Were they that desperate for a deal? But that is of course a lot better thing to say about a record than saying the best thing about it is the cover.

It's the band's singer's ass in the denim shorts on the front cover. The rest of her legs are on the back cover. The fact that she's doing the cover means it's not sexist (unless the rest of the band forced her to of course).

Your a bit of an old Mary Whitehouse Tony? Bet your the guy that phones the BBC complaining about Ant & Dec. FFS
