Song of the day – 101: Rizzo
The shortest entrant in the Song of The Day lists yet, courtesy of the Grrl Band Geek blog.
(Incidentally, mate: grrl should have three ‘r’s. I thought this out years ago: two indicates it’s just a slightly crap, alternate spelling of ‘girl’. Three indicates venom, power, PASSION.)
Who or what were RIZZO!? Damn, how could I have missed this greatness from 2000 (of course it’s on Sympathy For The Record Industry). They kinda remind me of the Yeastie Girls, and the Frumpies, and all that good stuff. Named after the awesome leader of the Pink Ladies from Grease, of course. Two girls, one banging stand-up drums from the look of it. Plenty of melodies and noise and stuff going on in between. Maybe it’s a little like The Avengers, too? And of course early Kenickie. Whatever. I’m just mad I never wrote about it at the time. The entire album is killer.
Here’s their MySpace.
Ah, go on then. Treat yourself to another video.
And here’s the original Rizzo. Love this song. Love it.
