Long before Bikini Kill, The Donnas and Sleater-Kinney there was a rowdy girl rock record released in 1980 by Nikki And The Corvettes. The band was fronted by the hard-working Nikki as she toured and played hundreds of shows every year. This new reissue on vinyl from BOMP! Records is a true reminder of just how much music is out there that represents a hidden gem for someone. What makes Nikki And The Corvettes so appealing is that the songs are so simple as most tracks don’t pass the two minute mark. The album is a blend between the Ramones, The Go-Go’s and Blondie but it does not necessarily possess the depth of any of those bands but it is equally entertaining as Nikki’s confidence soars throughout the record as she sings about boys, summer fun and rocking it up. This is an album that is hard to sit still when you listen to it as the call out choruses are non –stop. “You’re The One” will make you want to join in the female backup vocals while “Let’s Go” most definitely should bring out some air guitar.
