Overview

60 Ft. Dolls' debut album The Big 3 is an unfocused but frequently invigorating collection of punk-pop. While the group doesn't have the melodic exuberance of Ash or the wild, otherworldly sense of pop style of their Welsh contemporaries Super Furry Animals, 60 Ft. Dolls can rock very, very hard, bashing their chords out in a frenzy. Those three-chord romps are viscerally exciting, but the group is at their best when they slow the tempo down slightly and concentrate on writing songs as catchy as the Jam-like single "Stay." Even with its inconsistent songs, The Big 3 shows considerable promise, and it's refreshing to hear a young band in the late '90s rocking this hard with such little pretension. [The 2015 reissue of the album adds all kinds of goodies on a second disc. Eleven B-sides make up the bulk of the disc and show off the group's hard-rocking side with a few detours into balladry (the pretty "Rosalyn") and a cracking take on the Small Faces' "After Glow." A previously unreleased Peel session from 1996 is here, with a supercharged version of "Stay" being the highlight. It's a well put-together package and a long overdue look back at one of the under-rated gems of the '90s pop scene.]
