Product Description

Down from Newcastle in a cloud of glitter, brain, lip and chorus, Kenickie were the brightest thing 1997 had to offer--no great claim in the year the Verve sulked up the charts with their long-faced man balladry, but still, Kenickie would have given the Ronettes a run for their money if they'd been around. Although everyone was too busy at the time swooning over lead-singer Lauren Laverne's ability to have blonde hair and one of the sharpest tongues in music; she was actually showing signs of being able to write songs that would break brittle hearts in two. "Millionaire Sweeper"--all Pavement guitars and teen-rush rainy heartbreak--sounds like the young Kirsty MacColl; while "I Never Complain" sounds like Kurt Cobain seeking shelter in the Go-Gos. And there's always the spunky star-dazzle of "Punka", "Nightlife" and "In Your Car" for going mental to. --Caitlin Moran

So, Kenickie, the dream is over. Lauren Laverne (vocals, guitar, songwriting), Marie DuSantiago (vocals, guitar, songwriting), EmmyKate Montrose (vocals, bass, songwriting) and Pete "Johnny X" Gofton (drums, songwriting) have all moved on, Marie and Emmy as Rosita and Lauren and Pete to as yet unknown glories. And what have they left us with? Well, there were two albums proper, 'Get In' and this, their debut, 'At The Club.' Put quite simply, it is, in this music/life fan's humble opinion, the best album ever made. Punk pop with glitter, champagne and wicked laughter. Blondie, Manics, Iggy et al eat your heart out and offer it to Kenickie. 'At The Club' tells the story of the power and the glory of that most bittersweet of times: youth. Written when the girls were barely 18 years old, they scale remarkable heights in their tales of life as it is lived, laddered tights and all. They swing from the gleeful triumph of masterpieces such as 'Classy' and 'In Your Car' to the aching beauty of 'Acetone' and 'Millionaire Sweeper.' And of course, the best song ever written about lusting after a life: 'Come Out 2nite.' This album should be made compulsory listening. Listen and learn. Kenickie will show you how it's done, with more class and sass than you can ever imagine. Listen and live.

This is a really great album, from start to finish, all the songs are pure class. It's just a shame kenickie were cut off in their prime, as they were one of the greatest bands ever. Buy this album!

Before being a television personality, Lauren Laverne fronted a rather excellent band called Kenickie and this was one of the just two albums they released. It is choc-full of wonderful, unassuming, down-to-earth Indie pop about eventful nights out, bust-ups, and generally just working-class life, as told by working-class people.

It is catchy-as-hell, and would almost be verging on the nauseatingly twee were it not for the furious drums, great guitars and absolute gusto which has undoubtedly gone into this record. The 'yeah-yeah-yeah...' chorus in 'In Your Car', for example, is very hit and miss, but actually pulled off spectacularly, whilst the song itself sounds sincere and generally like four young people having a lot of fun.

The likes of 'How I Was Made', however, show a lyrical dexterity, and the fast-paced guitars and drums of the likes of 'Punka' or 'Classy' provide ace Indie-pop moments, all rich with the exuberance of youth, something which cannot be recaptured on record once it's gone.

The likes of 'Nightlife' is just great no-frills pop, whilst the anthemic-sounding 'PVC' alone is worth buying the album for, containing the same kind of riffery you'd expect to hear on a Nirvana record. It sounds iconic, and reeks of the same kind of britpop-era power which is evident on records such as 'Song 2' by Blur, or 'Connection' by Elastic. It's perhaps the greatest song on the album, alive with heavy guitars and bombast. 'Come Out 2 Nite' is yet another homage to working-class life, catchy, led by handclaps, and featuring amusingly realistic lyrics.

This is a very down-to-earth, fun and greatly enthusiastic record which features some great songs.
