Hasn’t Vivian Girls taught us anything, that if you garner enough hype they will come, doe eyed and vacant despite the actual music not being very good in the first place? I guess not.... Twenty years ago the riot grrrls channeled girl power by recycling Gloria Steinem and attempting to play like the boys while the current movement apes sixties girl groups without Phil Spector genius or the go-go boots. Sure, Kim Gordon and Kathleen Hanna will tell you that what was happening in the early nineties was important but you know, it really wasn’t, and neither is what’s happening today. You will remember Dum Dum Girls like you remember the what’s-their-names from Olympia as soon as you grow tired of being duped. [Sub Pop]
