"Simply put, the Shivvers may be the best female-fronted powerpop band the world has seen. It's just that the world wasn't looking their way back in 1980...They had chops, talent, originality, looks -- and if they'd been based in New York or LA the Shivvers would either have changed the course of music in the '80s or they'd have gloriously crashed and burned in a world-class blaze of hype.The Shivvers' songs are sure to please fans of the Spector/Brill Building 1960s girl-groups, but the Shivvers were always, foremost, a performing band -- and before you start thinking Bangles or Go-Gos or Holly or Nikki, the Shivvers were more like a female-fronted Raspberries or early Badfinger than anything their new wave-era contemporaries were up to. Maybe like the Pretenders on a full-on sugar high instead of speed or heroin."
