Album Review
Reviewed 2003-06-12
Not neo-New Wave but today's equivalent of then-New Wave. It?s simple pop music with synthesizers and guitars. Catchy too. Maybe Malaria are a comparable group - Electrocute are also German. Good stuff.

1. Cutesy (double entendre?) lyrics
2. Very Malaria-like German pop - title means "Little Chubby Boy", not "small dick young"; maybe this is a tribute to "Kaltes Klares Wasser", but guitar is a bit Poison Ivy-ish
3. Simplistic bass-and-rhythm and emotionless recital of reasons that singer "needs a freak"
4. All the good stuff about sugary junk food of all kinds over a swampy-lite guitar
5. Detached voices repeating group's name over a bed of plinky synths and what sound like gunshots
