Tacoma’s supercalifragilisticexpialidociousest rock’n’roll combo does it again!!! Five years after the mighty and acclaimed New American Shame album shook the underground garage scene, the lads and lass put out, yet again, another magnificent collection of tunes that transfigures their unique and patented brand of party music into an art form.
Seamlessly blending together elements of 50’s rockabilly with 60’s garage and surf music, Girl Trouble create music of such irrepressible zest for the fun things in life, and with such unrelenting enthusiasm, that I can’t help wondering why there isn’t yet a mountain around with their pleasant mugs carved on it.
Whereas most garage bands around prefer to dive into the muck of catastrophic personal relations or deal with the seamiest subjects they can lay three fuzzed-out chords to (which I personally enjoy immensely), K. P. Kendall (who is the unlikely outcome of cross-pollination between Elvis, Lux Interior and Roky Erickson), Kahuna (who whips out the sharpest geetar licks this side of Link Wray), Dale Philips (who lays down buttery smooth bass lines a la John Entwhistle without even breaking a sweat), and Bon von Wheelie (who puts Moe Tucker’s metronomic drumming to shame) have been able throughout the years to compose rambunctiously surrealistic odes to the bizarre events of everyday life with an ease only matched by crackpot luminaries like Jonathan Richman or Robyn Hitchcock.
So, if you consume your rawk stirred but not shaken you’ll definitely...down this puppy dry. Cheers!!!

I can't believe I haven't written a review for this OFF THE CHARTS AMAZING disc. It is plain and simple...It's ROCK AND ROLL at it's BEST! What I love about it is that every song has a different rockin' vibe to it. I honestly don't have a favorite "track"...though I LOVE that song! I agree with the other reviews totally. New American Shame was a true classick but this is about as great a follow-up as you can get to such a kick-ass disc. They are different though. I guess having the time to mold each song so perfectly was the trick to make this one so diverse sounding yet so ROCKIN'!!! GT RULES!!!

I go to as many gigs as I can.. My uncle is K.P. Kendall, so I spend alot of time with the band.. You should absolutely check this band out.. When they are at a place near you you should go and see them.. Don't listen to this band if you don't like to dance because everytime you hear them some part of your body moves even if you don't like them.. So, take my advice try something new like the awesome sounds of my uncle K.P., Kuhuna,Bon Von, and of course the cute one Dale..

What more can be said about this long-running group that hasn't already. Why it took them 5 freaking years to put this out is beyond me but I have heard that label fights was only part of the problem. Still "TT&S" takes GT on a broader trip then before. Now don't go expecting moogs, string arrangments or even lilting harmonies, BUT there seems to be a slight pop edge to this not found in previous efforts like the now classic, "New American Shame". Often people put upon bands a need for change or um..."growth" which in most cases doesn't neccesarily work. Girl Trouble like the Ramones (for at least their first 5 or 6 albums) avoids this path. Maybe intentionally, maybe they can't "grow", maybe they don't really even care, who knows. For years they have carried and displayed an almost idiot savant effort to their releases but seeing them live is a different story. Live they are in complete control drawing the audience no matter how small or large into part of the show. Fun is to be had which seems ironic since most of their songbook's subject matter draws on murder, suicide, serial killings and religious fears, which brings me back to "Tuesdays" which attempts to change this or die trying. A song like "Mr. Thackary" has almost a mod/pop flare to it given it's title charcater, and "Strother Martin" lays down a funky groove where the guitar and sax snake in and out in quite a MORPHINE like vein. "Intoxicating Criminal.." may possibly be there srongest song to date, at least their most accessible.Read more ›
