For the Boys

CD Cover Hissy Fit

Review by Darren Kerr

It may sound like warrior princess Gisele Grignet is becoming a trifle kittenish, but it's during those few moments while her claws are retracted that you can sidle up to her. When she suddenly changes tactics and lets loose for full-throated scream-bloody-murder hysterics LOOK OUT! She's going for you carotid artery, your jugular, and your eyes.

This album is definitely for those who like big-sounding, punchy punk played with much conviction, with Gisele, Scott, Rich and Terry wreaking blissful frat-stomp havoc on the CD's three songs. The sound is much more full-on ballsy than on last year's full-length release, What to Wear, and is a more true representation of the band's live performances. The Hissy Fit saga continues.
