THE’s Bomb The Rocks – Early Days Singles 1989-1996 (2004)

Bomb The Rocks
Early Days Singles 1989-1996 (2004)
Punky Japanese Girls In A Garage

Like most, I first heard the catchy, all-girl garage rock of The’s via Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 1, where the trio (at the time) is seen performing. Also like most, I kinda tuned out when that same tune (“Woo Hoo”) became a television commercial associated with shattered glass doors and assorted goofiness. But, if you’re able to project yourself to another time – the early 90s, when the girls were doing this stuff for the fun of it –  then this early singles collection just might hit your ‘this is odd’ spot. Righteously irreverent and a tad grating. Might as well preview their theme song (“The’s”). Amazon.

    Alas, like so much else, any hope has been crushed by Tarantinobots, trendoids, lemmings and ad-pukes…

    Thanks anyway,

      Personally, I don’t decide what I like, based on what others are doing.

    That’s nice in principle, until overexposure and debasement ruins it… kind of obvious in age where that happens daily

      It’s even better in practice. I see and hear very few opinions I’m not interested in. Commercials go in one ear and out the other, if not TIVOed out completely. So I have no issue with what others do with the music… or even think about it, for that matter. It’s your right to hate something simply because of how its traveled in the world around you, but remember… the music was created before all of that. It’s just as easy to enjoy it for its original intent, if you just ignore the bullshit. Which is what everyone should be doing in the first place.

      Besides… the “overexposure” you’re talking about is just one song for one client. I’ve never even seen these guys outside of the Kill Bill movie, though they must’ve been on TV somewhere. Hardly exposed, much less OVERexposed. It would be like ignoring The Who’s catalog because of CSI.
