Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-01-16 
Coll. of local acts put together by the heros at the Portlite club in Oakland. CD starts with mostly power-punk-pop oriented folks then gets slightly more varied and ends silly w/ some old gems like Flipper at CBGBs. Note also: Bobbyteens, Eddie Haskells, Glitter Mini 9, Enda

1) upbeat bright power pop
2) punky pop
3) fave trashy girls, a little slicker and phil spectorish
4) garagy punk a la stooges, one FCC not too blatant
5) power pop w/ ska backbeat guit
6) faster pop w/ hardcore vent
7) glam punk feel sorta
8) sounds like east bay pop punk
9) pop punk in a minor key
10) fem vocs to dark pop, sorta 80’s
11) nicely overdriven mid paced dirty pop w/fem vocs- but review the first 10 secs and edit out the blatant FCC
12) sugary power pop a la Knack
13) slower ballady pop somehow Television’ish (9th chords)
14) smiths’ish chorus pedal upbeat pop
15) kinda sludgey metal guit but bright production and fem vocs keep it poppy
16) nice mix of elements from psych to garage to spy jazz
17) funky dunky, cool
18) poppy indie feel
19) upbeat super power pop
20) spoken silliness, FCCs to the max!! do not play ever! (excep the very last quote is quite nice, edit it closely)
21) ghetto blaster silly cover of Paranoid
22) fathers of the original “grunge”, a typical four chord mess of their famous “ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ho ho ho ho ho…”
23) crazy ass silliness w/ faux rappin and hair metal samples
