GIRLS 20 


NYC Punks THE PRISSTEENS shone brightly for a few short years in the late '90s. 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 (PURPLE WIZARD) and DAVE LINDSAY (THE ACTION SWINGERS). They released a smattering of singles and they released a one-and-done major label debut with The Strangeloves RICHARD GOTTEHRER at the helm (Go-Go's, Blondie, Holly & The Italians). They turned Joey Ramone into an obsessed superfan, and they had songs that featured on 90210 and the '90s teen movie Jawbreaker. They began to demo material for a second LP before disbanding. The Prissteens made some of the finest girl group punk pop of the '90s, and there were quite a few bands to contend with mining similar territory. The Prissteens were better than them. The Prissteens The Hound LP was mastered by PATRICK HAIGHT in Pure Mono.  "Buy me all the records on Girlsville! Why did it take more than 20 years to make such a discovery, which unites everything that makes grandiose garage rock so special? Alone "The Hound" or "Oh Howard" should be a blueprint for people who want to work on this genre. "Teenage Dicks" almost made me cough out my cigarette and there's not a bad song to be found on this compilation." -SONIC THREAT  'The crunchy guitar sound on garage jams like ‘Oh Billy‘ and ‘Wildman‘ is to die for but The Prissteens are no one-trick garage rock pony. There are sweet sweet pop hooks littered throughout the 16 tracks. For me, ‘Nothing To Say‘ is a power-pop masterpiece worth the price of admission alone.' -50Thirdand3rd
