Biography

Fronted by charismatic singer-songwriter-guitarist Matt Friction, power-pop band THE PINK SPIDERS has gained almost as much notoriety for their exploits, attitude and iconic look, as they have for the catchy and explosive sound they generate. Infamy and chaos has followed them since they first stormed onto the Nashville music scene in 2004 with their self-released debut The Pink Spiders Are ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Most bands that come from Nashville wear cowboy hats write songs about punching their horses. No such problems with the Pink Spiders, who at an early age sound like they traded in their Oak Ridge Boys CDs for the complete back catalog of New York's mid-'90s garage rock revivalists, D-Generation. Like that group's breakthrough album, No Lunch, this disc was also produced by Ric Ocasek, the former Cars front man who has built a second career out of creating hits for guys that dress like his old band. Cue a fast and furious racket of skuzzy guitars, blasting power-pop drum fills and skinny-tie sound effects that turn up pleasantly stupid guilty pleasures like "Saturday Nite Riot" and "Little Razorblade." --Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

The Pink Spiders' debut album 'Teenage Graffiti' for the Geffen Records label is filled with attitude, great hooks and guitar driven rock. From the opening song 'Soft Smoke,' the band blends a mix of punk, pop and rock that reminds of past great rock bands from Def Leppard to Cheap Trick with a bit of the Rolling Stones' attitude thrown in for good measure. The group released their first EP 'The Pink Spiders are Taking Over!' in 2004 which led to them being signed by Geffen Records in 2005. The Nashville rockers have a unique and unmistakably catchy sound, and the album is filled with one great song after the next. Each song features hard guitar riffs, and catchy lyrics. The band never lets up on the pace, and rock fans will not be disappointed with this release. 'Teenage Graffiti' is a ROCK album and the band seems to be content not concerning themselves with trying to fit into one genre of music. It is filled with songs that describe the band's chaotic life of touring non-stop. The lead single 'Little Razorblade' is a radio friendly guitar pop tune (that smacks of Cheap Trick), but the album also benefits from more harder rocking songs like 'Nobody Baby' which leans more to the guitar rock/punk genre. The Pink Spider's 'Teenage Graffiti' is an album that I would highly recommend to any fan of rock. I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I put the album on, but was hooked on the band by the second song. It is simply a great debut album and leaves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars TPS are awesome! August 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Being a big fan of The Pink Spiders for a couple of years now I was super excited to pick up their new release. And I love it! Although a couple of my favorites ("Modern Swinger" and "Little Razorblade") were on the album "Hot Pink", I still dig the new material. For a little personal touch...I was one of the first people to hear "Little Razorblade" played live so I guess it's got a special place in my heart. :) Anywho, I totally recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of fun music that you can dance like a fool to. And definately to any TPS fan who doesn't own the album yet. The Pink Spiders aren't out to save the world...they are just out to have some fun and you can certainly tell that they do!

PS/They are super awesome live...go see them...but buy the album too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Teenage Graffiti August 8, 2006
By Shivani
Format:Audio CD
Teenage Graffiti is by far my favorite CD. So much emotion is put into every lyric by frontman Matt Friction. Each song has a uniques style, yet they are all tied together by the catchy, amazing music. My favorite songs off the album are "Hey Jane" "Still 3 Shy" and "Back to the Middle"... and"Pretend that this is fiction" I really cant choose... so buy the cd, and you can pick your own favorite!!

5.0 out of 5 stars MY FAVOURITE NEW(ISH) BAND, PERIOD!!!! August 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wow, this 3-piece band and major label debut are really cool!!! Exactly up my alley here. Totally unpretentious, raw, live-wire, tuneful + catchy as f***, a lot of fun, and with a unique sense of style. Pink and black??? Awesome and totally powerpop!!

I also have a feeling that they are a kickass, exciting live rock & roll band too, which I dig. To me, if you've got the goods, musically and songwise, but suck live, that just ruins things. I can just TELL they convert a LOT of people with their live show...the cover shot is probably a good indicator of this.

Musically, they are totally garage-raw powerpop, with cool attitude and songs that either instantly stick or grow on you, but there are no duds. Kudos to Ric Ocasek, yet again, as not only is he one of the best musicians/producers around, being from the Cars, but he chooses cool bands to produce wisely. Hell, he helmed the famous "Blue Album" debut by Weezer, and look how they blew up. I have a feeling they had their sound down on their indie debut "Hot Pink" and just refined it with Ric behind the boards. It's great how he captured their live sound on tape, it's just obvious. Also, Talking Head Jerry Harrison helmed the song "Hey Jane". Nice production touches too, enhancing their core guitar/bass/drums attack with occasional keyboards/piano if the songs needed embellishing, but nothing else.

Comparing the Pink Spiders to other bands, I would definitely say Cheap Trick, the Cars, the Knack, the Hives, the Turtles, maybe an American take on Supergrass, even Sum 41 in the vocals by singer/guitarist Matt Fiction. But they've got their own feel. If I have to pick my 2 favourite tunes here it would be the single "Little Razorblade" and the amazing "Back To The Middle" with that killer chorus!!!

Check out these Spiders, they might be your favourite new band too.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Albums EVER March 20, 2009
By KMG
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"The Pink Spiders" cd was given to me as gift from a DJ friend. He tossed it my way, it found its way to my cd player in my car, and I was immediately jamming to the grooves and crafty lyrics.
Highly entertaining- why isn't this stuff on the radio?
"Don't let your life's income determine your life's outcome" is now one of my most-used quotes. I've put it as my signature at the bottom of my emails at work. Very inspiring and very easy to listen to.
They have odd instruments, quirky lyrics and an awesome sound. "Back to the Middle" is one of my favorite tracks, along with "Razorblade" and "Adele".
Pick it up- you won't put it down.
I've just ordered a few more copies to pass out to my friends who are cool enough to enjoy it. The Pink Spiders deserve to be well known.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poppy but smells like punk June 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit I went into this album expecitng to hate it. A band named "The Pink Spiders"? After giving it a chance I absolutly love this album. They have a very pop sound which I am not usually into but the format still sounds punk which is what makes it good. I am suprised these guys have not blown up yet.

I would purchase another CD by them when it comes out.

I saw one song from this band on a middle of the night MTV program and went for it. This album is fun, fast, energetic, consistent, and generally awesome. I'm now a Pink Spiders fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Obsession August 26, 2006
By Annie
Format:Audio CD
I love this CD. It's soo amazing. I bought it the day it came out and listened to it a lot and then I bought a couple more CDs a couple weeks later, but I just kept coming back to this one. I can't even describe it's amazing-ness. It's like a combination of some retro influenced rock with modern touches. I also read an article on them in AP and they were so fabulously cocky (in a good way of course!) that you can't help but love them. I love every single song on the album! I'd do a rundown of the songs and rate them, but they'd all just be 10/10, so what's the point? I will tell you that my favorites are:

Modern Swinger

Still Three Shy

Pretend that this is Fiction

Little Razorblade

and EVERY other song!

Please buy this. You won't regret it.
