HOW I HEARD ABOUT THEM: Apparently I’m Myspace friends with them, because I clicked on their bulletin announcing their opening slot for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at Bowery Ballroom.
LATEST RELEASE: GRRR10 [UK EP]
SONG LISTENED TO: “Stickin’ It to the Man” [MP3]
WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: Punk rockin’ pre-teens. Heavy Stooges influence. Bro and sis Ivan and Ada (12 and 10 respectively) both list the White Stripes among their favorite bands–how can you not love them? Kinda makes me want to set little Ada up with one of the kids from The Muldoons. Oh and helloooo kickass name. They’ve already gotten tons of media buzz, from Newsweek to the New York Times–caring not so much on their musical merits, but reveling in the fact that they’re somehow representative of a pre-teen rock explosion fueled by Yupsters.
THUMB UP OR DOWN?: Up up UP!
