Artist: Cherri Bomb (Official, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, PureVolume, MySpace, Last.fm, AllMusic, Wikipedia)
Cherri Bomb is a young (ages 14-17) all-girl band that mixes elements of punk and glam rock. The band's full-length debut is an extremely well executed album that displays a maturity one wouldn't expect from a group of teenagers. Both musically and lyrically This Is The End Of Control shows a depth of songwriting and musicianship that isn't often seen in young bands. Cherri Bomb's sound is large and slick (in a good way) that is very reminiscent of The Donnas' later work. There really isn't anything devastatingly new going on here but this isn't a sound that one doesn't (or at least a sound that I don't) hear that often nowadays. It also doesn't hurt that Cherri Bomb is a tight, tight band that wails. Fans of Lita Ford, The Runaway, and the aforementioned Donnas should definitely give Cheeri Bomb a listen.
