Operator Please - Yes Yes Vindictive - Cd
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

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.Read more ›
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...
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!
