Okay, I’m fresh off a 15 hour drive down I-95 , and if there is anything that can make me sit back down in a chair , it’s working on getting this post together. I’ve been listening to this album for the last hour and it’s a shame I didn’t know about The Prissteens back then. They have that punk edge with very cool vocals , think Joan Jett or a way more punkier Susanna Hoffs. The music sounds like it’s from today, like this should be a band that Bleached or the Coathangers listen to for fun and inspiration. Great way to start off the month of June. Visit Girlsville Records and pre-oder “Demos & Rarities” by THE PRISSTEENS .
this is a bio written by Girlsville Records:
NYC Punks The Prissteens shone brightly for a few short years in the late 90’s. Originally comprised of Mighty Joe Vincent of The Devil Dogs on Drums, and Lori Lindsay, Leslie Day, and Tina Canellas on guitar and vocals, later lineups would include Jon Chalmers (Sato and Jonny, Purple Wizard) and Dave Lindsay (Action Swingers, Purple Wizard). They released a smattering of singles, the A-sides of which appear on the tail end of this collection. They released a one-and-done major label debut with The Strangeloves Richard Gottehrer at the helm (Go-Go’s, Blondie, Holly & The Italians) and they turned Joey Ramone into an obsessed superfan. They had a song in the 90’s teen movie Jawbreaker, and they began to demo material for a second LP before disbanding. These demos are seeing the light of day for the first time on this collection, 20 years after The Prissteens first single came out. The Prissteens made some of the finest girl group pop and punk of the 90’s, and there were quite a few bands to contend with mining similar territory. The Prissteens were better than them.
