Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-03-25 
Local trashy fun rock, garagey, punky, surfy, indie, all together with girl drummers and mostly female vocals. Great stuff, local weirdos from the school of Kitty Kat Spy Club, Mob Stereo, Lovechild, Muffs, Henry's Dress, Teenagers, Tiger Trap, and the Rondelles of course. Rough around the edges, strange production, some songs just sorta fade out and blend into the next leaving a big "huh?". I think its cool as shit. My new favorite local band. You gotta check out the band photos. Buncha freaks. I wish I could be their friend....

1) minor toned, slightly surfy, simple rock
2) driving more rockin, melodic
3) classic feel, great guitar tones, melodic and poppy love song
4) upbeat great feel, great twisted lyrics
5) a tad rougher, punkier, with male vocs
6) layered fem vocs, upbeat and catchy and brief
7) FCC (quick "fuck" in chorus, oops)
8) strummy pop, sweet
9) strummy pop again
10) upbeat, party music about phoning jesus, dang!
11) strummy with lines like "throwing up in the kitchen sink" cant lose
12) slower, mid paced simple rock
13) upbeat juvenile feel, a la sweeter Ramones or a rough Dream Syndicate
14) 2/4 upbeat yeehaw ode to Wesley Willis, silly as hell, yay!!
15) melodic and sweet ballad, strummy and sincere female vocs and no drums
16) simple almost cute pop
17) instrumental: surfy guitar riff and upbeat feel, "yeast infection".... um yeah
18-21) Cleaner "acoustic" versions of previous songs (vocs and acoustic guitar) 16, 14, 1,
Track 21: FCC
22) guitar strumming, no drums or vocals
