Product Description

Product Description

2001 release for Swedish indie rock act inspired by Blondie & PJ Harvey, the followup to their 1999 release, C'monLet's Pretend. 13 tracks in all including 'Fire Alarm','Fall Into Line' & 'A Perfect Mess'.

From the Runaways to the Donnas, the garage has served as a safe haven for women who would rather be rock stars than sleep with them. The latest quartet of girls to strap on electric guitars, throw on a pair of scuffed-up Converse sneakers, and howl like maniacs comes from the small town of Robertsfors, Sweden. Like the finest work of fellow Swedes the Hives and Division of Laura Lee, Sahara Hotnights' brash debut album runs exclusively on heavy riffs and even heavier attitude. They roll out the hairy '70s punk guitars for "Alright Alright (Here's My Fist, Where's the Fight?)," talks hair-yanking trash on "Only the Fakes Survive," and does a bang-up early Blondie tribute with "Keep Up the Speed." Explosive, indeed. --Aidin Vaziri

When I first heard about The Donnas and saw a picture of them I thought they were going to sound great. Maybe something like Sahara Hotnights actually do. This band is another import from the Sweden scene which we write about so much about in Free Williamsburg. We are on it. Sahara Hotnights released their first record in 1997, so even though they look like jailbait they are veterans of the scene in their early 20s. Their fresh take on music is a mix of new wave and punk. This is the music that is taking over Sweden and now the world. It's always interesting to see different takes. It's more exotic that way. Most of us need to make room in our record collections for something like this.
It begins with "Alright Alright" and "Keep The Speed Up" which are both fast paced songs with original melodies. The guitar playing is jagged and crisp. It's hard to believe that there could be a female Stooges. Since they have been doing this band from such an early age they seem world weary and skilled. The best song is "On Top Of Your World" and defines their original sound. Sometimes they are like a more melodic Social Distortion in their early days. They do draw from the well of punk but from no one in particular. Where The Donnas seem stiff at times, this Swedish band seems more expansive and imaginative. If Kim Fowley had this group in the 1970s they would have been the biggest band on the planet. The album is wall to wall speed. If they would have done some slow songs maybe that would be interesting. But who am I to keep these gals back? They could be the next big thing. (...)

The promotional materials for this Swedish all-female punk band would have us believe that they're the second coming of Led Zeppelin or even the Beatles, using words like "inventive", "sophisticated" and "original" to describe them. They even say that the Sahara Hotnights "reinvent punk rock" and something to the effect of them being an antidote to "nu metal".
These are mostly exaggerations, though. The Hotnights are more of a retro act than anything radically new. After all, they sound like the Runaways but with new wave melodies like the Police, Ramones or early Cure. Like all four of those bands, their production values are lo-fi and more natural sounding than any of those nu-metal and neo-punk bands. The Hotnights also offer plenty of attitude but without saying anything particularly controversial (another old tradition). On the sleeve of their new album, Jennie Bomb, they are even dressed like the Ramones, and their logo is in the same font as that of many 1980s movies.
That is not to say that Jennie Bomb is not a great album. One problem with modern rock is that high technology is applied to inherently sloppy music, thereby taking away much of its power. The Sahara Hotnights are an alternative to that. There is a refreshing spontenaity in their sound. More importantly, though, the Hotnights are a punk band with an atypically keen ear for melody. Their best songs, like "Fire Alarm", "No Big Deal" and "With or Without Control", have the kind of supremely catchy melodies that can make any rock songwriter say, "Why didn't I come up with that?" And even their blander songs, "Keep Up the Speed" or "Out of the System", are pleasing to listen to in some way.

I tried to give this album zero stars but it wouldn't let me.
There is SO nothing great about this release - besides maybe the hott graphics (though not exactly NEW in any way). First, there is nothing energizing about an unbelievably TIRED throwback sound. What? Go pick up an original. Second, these girls may have been making music for some time, but really, they arrive here on the coattails of other bands whom are of equal psuedo-innovation/. Are we BORED yet? Third, all their songs sound the same and they all dress the same as countless indieposers around the globe.
If you are actually interested in finding something unique and an innovative contribution to the "scene" check out numbers, deerhoof, outhud, stars as eyes, erase errata, the need... or geez, even blonde redhead (older stuff). OR go buy the real thing of it's day> ... you get the picture.
Sorry guys, but even MISSY ELLIOTT is more interesting. As it stands, this stuff is like britney spears with a better haircut. yawn.

With the prevailing wind of anti-pop blowing strongly across the US of A these days, many stripped down, no-nonsense rock outfits are making music fans sit up and take notice. If you hadn't noticed lately, more than a few of these bands hail from the fine country of Sweden. Possibly the finest of all these bands is the mighty Sahara Hotnights. Even if they were just talentless poster girls, they could sell CDs on their looks alone, but they are indeed MUCH more than their very pretty faces and effortless, energetic stage presence. This is nowhere more evident than on the stupendous smash-up of a record Jennie Bomb. Taut, tight, throbbing and a tremendous blow of a musical concussion - the title is more than apropos.
Yes, I suppose you could compare them to bands like Elastica, Wire or The Pretenders... but why would you? They are incomparable in just about every way. ...
