Chixdiggit: Born on the First Of July (1998)

Born on the First of July (CD, Honest Don's, Power pop/punk) This band is a perfect blend of Cheap Trick and The Shoes, with the intense kick of the Buzzcocks thrown in. There are few bands I've heard do the power pop/punk thing this well. This is right up there with Bracket (a band that is a vastly underrated GAS...). This band plays like a stomping tornado, but it's those breathy, mindblowing vocals that push this completely over the edge. It's funny how so few bands realize how to set yourself apart from everyone: Be direct and simple. Chixdiggit!'s charming hyper pop tunes are as instantly catchy as Teletubbie custard. If you think all hard pop bands sound the same, these guys will prove you wrong. This is The Ramones for the power pop set. Blindingly hummable tunes like"Gettin Air," "My Girl's Retro," "Quit Your Job," "My Restaurant," "Ohio," and "Brunette Summer" are about fifty times better than the best of the best. Do I dig this? Whether or not this band becomes popular is irrelevant. Here in 'les baby la la' they be an instant rockin' HIT. This will certainly be one of our favorites of the year. HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!!
