Exciting fan moment coming this month for Kimmer at the Ann Arbor Rock n Roll Revival show. I finally get to meet Nikki Corvette! We love her and she reminds us of our favorite girl singers of the 1960's and all that is retro fabulous.
Two decades before the Donnas were doing their best to be the "chick Ramones," we had Nikki and the Corvettes. Bomp has reissued on CD the band's sole album -- think of a sexed-up punked-up Shangri-Las, fueled by Chuck Berry guitar riffs -- along with their two singles. You get 16 foot-tappin', head-boppin' songs about boys, "Backsteat Love," and dancing that I think would require a supreme effort to NOT enjoy. Bubblegum punk that tastes as good as it looks.
