Yes, all but the most Hemi-headed will find something to bop to and maybe, just maybe, stick around long enough to "listen." Smart, funny, tough, kick-ass power-punk-pop where the B-52s meet the Clash and take Sandra Bernhard for a ride. Julie Ruin began this? Hey kids, get some HISTORY! But sure, it's the new thing, the now thing, the grrrl thing and it rocks. My 5yr-old says, "My five favorite bands are the Beatles, the Pretenders, Ella Jenkins, Dan Zanes, and Le Tigre. And my own band, the Maruumba Band." What a recommendation! My wife says he gets to listen to it until he figures out the adjective they use to describe Rudy Giuliani, and I don't mean "jerk." "But they're right, aren't they?" I counter, but she's a protective soul. I say, start your boyz out right and they grow up to be HUMAN BEINGS. And they get to have some fun while doing it. So give this album to your sons! Your boyfriends! Your dads! Your Uncle Charleys!
