    you know, it is kind of growing on me.
    it might be just seeing the jackson guitars again, always loved them.
    i think some RS snippet or review said they were like "toni basil fronting motley crue"...which when i read that, i thought i've got to check them out....there is another thread here on them (w/ the SNL show they were on as the title), i realize some will hate, others love....but i think they are interesting...there's a couple of other songs that i think are real catchy that i saw on youtube....

    I guess they have a rhythm section hidden somewhere... but yeah, two Jacksons with three Marshall stacks apiece blasting away with a female vocalist threading a melody over top is a bit unusual! I like how they trade off with a variety of high-volume attenuated (?) sonic effects to tweak their unique sound.

    Further south than I'd like.
    They are exactly the kind of band I would hate.....but I love them.

    I really enjoy listening to their first album. Picked up their 2nd album and didn't listen to it as much. I didn't even know they had a new one out. Is it good? I thought about getting it, but it didn't have very good reviews on iTunes. Waiting to see...

    I really like Sleigh Bells! That overblown sound is neat. I listen to Treats on a semi-regular basis still.

    LOVE the Jackson guitars. I've only heard their first record, I don't love it, but at least they have their own "thing" going on
