UK collection. The follow-up to our Girls Go Power Pop! Collection of female-fronted bands from the 80s and 90s, and the sisterly companion to Come On Let's Go! and Rockets Of Love!, our two volumes of male Power Pop. This compilation includes many more examples of the blurring of lines: the Dollyrots' pop-punk mash-up of the Crystals and the Ramones is a rush of adrenalin and sweetness, the Donnas instill enough pop into metal to lighten it's heaviness, Bad Moves add pop to indie, Lydia Loveless somehow squeezes pop into cow-punk, the Launderettes pour greasy honey over garage-rock, and the Courettes add a dash of Spectoresque candy over their tough retro-rock - but the point is that it's all pop with power. Power Pop has maintained a strong underground presence from the 70s up to the present day, having survived by blending with similar styles, and is now enthusiastically supported by die-hard fans around the world. We have scoured the world to find the most exciting tracks with contributions from not only the USA and the UK but also Spain, Sweden, Japan, Norway, Brazil and Denmark. This is a celebration of the females who continue to explore the joyful possibilities pop has to offer. And, frankly, they do it best.
