Helen Love wannabes produce yawnsome debut
Two-thirds Canadian and one-third American, The Lollies formed in 1999 to apparently pay homage to all-girl groups such as Kenickie. And a crap version of Sleater Kinney is the result. Taste leaves you with the realisation that there's only so many times one can recreate that sugary half-speaking, half-singing yankee drawl before it all starts getting a bit boring.
Amidst a blur of fuzzbox and sickly synth-pop 'Way Too Special' promises to feature guitarist St. Claire's 'most blistering solo yet!' Frankly there's more exciting fretwork to be heard from a fingerless baboon wearing oven gloves.
Lollies. A treat every so often but bad in excess. And you stopped liking them when you reached the age of nine.
