The Donnas – American Teenage Rock and Roll Machine [ADB]

This album was released on lookout records in 1998, and it has 10 songs. They sound like the Slits, X-Ray SPex and the Ramones all rolled together, in 1977. They also has a kiss influence as well. THe Donna’s are one of the best female bands ever on one of the best labels ever, Lookout Records. Donna A’s vocals are top rate and all of the band sounds perfect, with great solos. They very successfully mix 70’s NY Punk with Brit Punk with Surf Punk, and still Keep it fresh. “Outta my mind” has parts in which the backup vocals sound like cheerleaders. The album is too short.
Rating: 9/10
