Finally Punk – “Casual Goths” – [Army of Bad Luck]
lombard 3/2/2010 12-inch, A Library
Compiling material from 2005 to 2009, this 2009 release “Casual Goths” by Austin girl rockers Finally Punk is a fun romp through riot grrrl-reminiscent punk rock (think Bratmobile and Sleater-Kinney). On gorgeous swirly pink vinyl, the LP culls tracks from several of their 7″s as well as some unreleased tracks (including a cover of Nirvana’s “Negative Creep”).
Short songs, screams, shrieks, call and response vocal moments, fab lyrics (“what the fuck. Missile!”) and sass (“You can pick me up…. go to shows…take me out….Do you wanna? Be my boyfriend? Fill out an application!”) take me back to the reason I loved the girl punk scene of the early 1990s and its marriage of girl group loveliness (in the melodic “Primary Colors”) with punk’s confidence and edge.
