Fabulous Disaster Panty Raid

San Francisco’s queens of lesbian pop punk return. Their sophomore release is crammed with catchy rockin’ punk that may have acts like the Donnas looking nervously over their shoulders. But they needn’t worry because although this is a pretty good record, the Fab D probably won’t break out anytime soon. The idea of foul-mouthed dykes singing about pill-popping, dysfunctional relationships and other seedy activities isn’t likely to see them hitting the big time, or even the underground big time. But you get the idea from giving this a listen that, in true punk style, that that’s the last thing they’d want. (Pink & Black)
