Get The Gore - Gore Gore Girls

Image Hosted by

A late review somewhat as this was released last June, but it's only recently hit my stereo. The Gore Gore Girls have been called "the Ronettes with guitars" which certainly makes them one to delve into, even if in the final assessment that proclamation might fit their ambitions but not their product.

It's not that the comparison has no merits, just that they never come close to matching that kind of power. Their garage-punk sound is certainly entertaining in small doses, but even with an album that clocks in at less than 40 minutes in duration, by the end of it you're starting to think that it's all beginning to sound depressingly similar.

Obscure cover version Where Evil Grows is a highlight as is the pumping Voodoo Doll; the sad thing is that for large parts of the album the songs are decent, but not particularly memorable.

One for curiosity value only.
