We now have a theatrical, RIO-inspired Zolo group in the USA. Lovely Little Girls meet the 20-year cycle head-on with a fantastically Euro-styled art rock cabaret that wouldn’t be out of place on Rec-Rec. Their sound and their playing are spot on. The imagery is a little dark for my tastes, but they can look however they like as long as they keep making this music.

Gregory Jacobsen's group Lovely Little Girls were superb, by the way. Their crazed crossbreeding of Brechtian narrative menace and Zappa/zuehl theatrics was a bracing rejoinder to just about anything you'd care to name...

I was excited to see Lovely Little Girls again, and they blew away their last set, which had already been pretty great. They've added some horns, every move of the set seems extremely thought out in a very effective way, and they've gotten heavier, almost like METAL. Scatological and goofy and, yes, "gender-fucked," they somehow hit at a perfect balance between pretentious-as-hell art-faggotry and hilarious self-deprecation.

Beefheart, Zappa, Brecht. Sexy, putrid, disturbed. Love it.

Fetid. Like a sun-baked gut-pile, glistening on some sweltering backroad, it left me wanting more.
Wonderful ugliness.
Ugly Wonderful mess.
