Fizzbombs-The Surfin' Winter E.P.

Somebody tell the Vivian Girls they're about 20 years too late. A band has already done the girly, up tempo, poppy, buzzy, what have you. But they did it better. And looks didn't sell records for them. While you might have a legion of record nerds giving themselves a good yank over your photos, deep down, people are aware of the conceit. It's just that record nerds are a lonely sort and cherish the times when their hobbies of music collecting and awkwardly staring at girls (never talking to them, mind you) can be combined, no matter how hollow it is. You might be cute, but I'm not buying it. But I'm sure plenty of others will.
