eclectic reviews and opinions

Heather Hates You

Operation Suckerpunch

(Self-released,, 2003)

Boston-area trio HHY straddles the line between melodic hardcore and pop-punk. Bassist and main vocalist Dave Buse has a slightly sneery tenor, while guitarist Rick Subrizio supplies canny harmony and shifts easily between crunchy chords and hooky melody lines. There are hundreds of bands cast from a similar mold, but this one stands out from the crowd. Veteran producer and engineer Paul Kolderie, whose credits include Big Dipper, Hole, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, has turned in a crisp and powerful recording. Most importantly, the songs are both catchy and varied, and the lyrics (by Buse and drummer John Pappas) are smart in both personal and political modes. Highly recommended.
