Review

You'll dig the beat, lead singer Sophie's adorably badass Joan Jett vibe, and the defiant-but-age-appropriate lyrics. --Entertainment Weekly Popwatch

Evocative of early Siouxsie and the Banshees... --Vanity Fair, "Hot Tracks"

...alarmingly catchy pop punk. --Blender.com

Product Description

2009 release from the teenage Pop/Punk trio. Hailing from Brooklyn, NY and possessing musical skill far beyond their middle school ages, Care Bears On Fire have become favorites on the New York City club scene, winning over jaded hipsters of all ages with their authentic Punk spirit and songs that capture the experience of being a kid with attitude and humor. These three girls (aged 13-14) formed the band while attending Rock Camp for Girls and based it on their shared love of first wave NY punk artists like Patti Smith and The Ramones. Their infectious sound and rebel spirit are an all-ages breath of fresh air.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perky pop-punk trio enters high-school September 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Formed in a Brooklyn elementary school, this pop-punk girl trio has finally made it to high school. They issued an EP in 2006 and their first full-length in 2007, and after a few personnel changes, this second full-length in the summer of 2009. Their latest album is filled with originals that harken back to the roots of late `70s and early `80s punk rock, but unlike those twenty-something's songs of adolescence, Care Bears on Fire write youth rock as they live it. They play as a tight and punchy power-trio, and though their age is novel, and there's a cute edge to their young concerns, they're hardly a novelty.

So what's on the mind of 15-year-olds these days? For starters: girls who'll do anything to get their way, peer-pressure, materialism, individualism, the tribulations of school, the realities of social networking, and, of course, boys. The extra sharp combination of "Barbie Eat a Sandwich" and "My Problems" takes on the distorted images of beauty and normalcy hammered into young girls by media and society. All of this is wrapped up in hook-filled melodies, girlish harmonies, and sing-along choruses set to power-chords, thumping bass and crashing drums. The band has a very high ratio of musical quality to years-lived, with songs that aren't artificially grown-up, written to a calculated Disney heart-tugging angle, or brain-numbingly childish.

Care Bears on Fire hit a sweet-spot that's appealing to their peers and to adults wanting to get an earful of a literate teenager's day-to-day concerns. Kim Fowley tried, or at least purported to try, to elicit this sort of music from the Runaways and Venus & The Razorblades, but his manipulations left too many adult fingerprints and often gave their songs an artificial, inflammatory air. In contrast, Care Bears on Fire is the product of three teenagers and thankfully free of grown-up staging. This is terrific pop-punk that's melodic, honest, clever, powerful and lots of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pop-punk, from real-live teenagers! August 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Care Bears On Fire
"Get Over It!"
(S-Curve Records, 2009)
----------------------------------------
This is the second self-released album (good luck finding the first!) from this teenage all-gal punk trio from Brooklyn, NY.

Teenage, but just barely: they actually started the band when they were 11 and 12 years old; some members just turned thirteen. The kids are adorable -- any hipster parent would be so proud! -- and music is great. There are at least two classic tracks on here, the perky, anti-conformist "Everybody Else" (which has two video versions floating around online) and the even more stinging "My Problems," in which a junior-high iconoclast stands up for her right to be imperfect -- the lyrics are awesome, with a chorus that kills:

My hair's not bouncy/what should I do?
My teeth aren't straight/my clothes aren't new
My freckles are weird/my hands aren't slender
I got too many problems to remember...

Everything's wrong/my face my hair
What they don't know/is that I don't care
I don't need you to tell me who to be
I'll decide what's wrong with me...

The lead singer/lead guitarist Sophie (no last name given) is a dynamic and compelling rock'n'roller. Her lyrics are generally sharp and incisive, and she combines sneers with sympathetic outsider-geek anthems, a combination of Joan Jett, Joey Ramone, and Poly Styrene of X-Ray Specs. And it's a good thing that, as her lyrics mention, that her hands aren't slender, 'cause this gal can really play guitar! The confidence, cleverness and talent of this band is tremendous -- far from being a novelty act, they are clearly a force to be reckoned with. If they stick to it, they could be real-deal rock stars of major proportions. Keep an ear to the ground to find out where they go from here! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Music Guide)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great name Clever songs August 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a great name for a group, "Care Bears on Fire". This is almost bubble gum pop punk, however with stinging lyrics. All the songs have great hooks. All the tunes have biting satrical lyrics exploring teenage feelings of alienation.
My favorite is "Everybody Else" a very catchy tune. "Barbie eat a Sandwich" is goofy but in a cool way.
If you like pop punk with biting but fun lyrics, buy this effort from The Care Bears on Fire.
