Coming into this review, I had no idea who this band was, or what they were about, but goddamnit the album art was some of the best I've seen. Skeletons with weapons, motorcycles, and muscle cars, can it possibly get any better?

BugGiRL is a two piece sibling rock band from Australia who since '07 have covered some 160,000 miles worldwide, everywhere from their home country to California and have toured with such acts from Valiant Thorr to The Germs.

After doing a little research, I put the album in and hit play and am immediately greeted by a raw and raunchy guitar riff followed by the drums to fill it in. And to my great surprise, this band is actually pretty damn good. After the first track, one thing was very apparent:this band is all about sex. Some lyrics for example are "I got that 10 inch itch" and "One horny trucker, one lonely bride. Got me hard up against my load. Motherfucker just about to explode."
These are just in the first song, within about 20 seconds apart and the lyrics only get raunchier from there. The fact that this duo are brother and sister make the lyrical content kinda creepy and odd, but what more could I expect from Australia?

No matter how you look at it, BugGiRL is classic rock band playing in the modern day. The guitar at times is a fretful fit, and I found myself comparing parts of songs to Motorhead and Iron Maiden, which is two thumbs up in my book.

Two gripes I have with this album is that production quality could have been a little better, with some parts sounding fuzzier than the others. The other complaint is that I probably wouldn't listen to this cd more than once all the way through, seeing as that it gets slightly monotonous in sound towards the end.

Overall, if you want a good rock record without the bullshit mainstream sound, this is the band for you. It's raunchy, it's fast paced, and will make you wonder how bands like this stay under the radar.
