If you like Wanda Jackson, the Cramps (to a certain degree), but also Liane Edwards (to mention a belter who you have a better chance of seeing live) Dagmar and the Seductones are for you. A big, bold. beautiful blonde, who sang for the troops far from home, who has sex appeal that won't leave you disappointed, backed by three musicians with impressive resumes, you've got the picture. Basic, working-class rock, songs reinterpreted from the heart ('Red Hot,' 'Stupid Cupid,' 'Let's Have a Party'), but that doesn't matter. You're here to have a good time, somewhere in a smoky bar with the motorcycles revving their engines outside and the beer flowing freely, or at a party with friends when it's time to dance with your girl. 'Little Bitta Love' has no goals beyond this, and thus has the benefit of being unambiguous. A CD for getting a little drunk, that's allowed now and then, right? A very fresh treat, recommended.
