Bludgeoning Riffola, Suitable For When Fucking the World

She Wolves's Mach One: The Early Days

Details

She Wolves
Mach One: The Early Days
Poptown
The cover art for the She Wolves' Mach One a chick in thigh-high boots, regarded from the waist down—capably tips off consumers to the exciting, get-hard punk-rock noise waiting inside. With Donna She Wolf (late of Cycle Sluts From Hell) on guitar and vocals, the band's forte is bludgeoning riffola that's often knuckle-dragging and provocative, as on "Art of War," with its shouts of "Undefeatable! Undefeatable!" Achieving density somewhere between Budgie and Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers, the She Wolves are in a pretty good place if you desire equal portions of catchy tunes and heavy rock. Bonus points accrue when the band backs the mighty Syl Sylvain on a wall-of-sound take on "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker"; at song's end is a clip of Joey Ramone fondly musing about seeing Syl's New York Dolls at the Mercer Arts Center. In the flesh, Jayne County also makes an appearance here, startlingly effective on a cover of "California Alles." "Fuck the world/Call some whores/We're gonna have some fun!" Donna declares. Who would beg to differ?
