**PIC Blur-endorsed Icelandic duo move from techno to post-punk on an itchy claustrophobic debut
A funny thing, 'girl power' - never more so than when men are all for it....
A couple of years in, when enough observers had pointed out the absurdity of four women needing some bloke to artistically supervise three chords, The Donnas dumped their manager. Bar an ace cover of Mvtley Cr|e's 'Too Fast For Love', 'Get Skintight' is all The Donnas' own work: 38 minutes of slightly better produced, three-chord proto-punk that will find favour with anyone who likes "stereo" to rhyme with "go, go, go!".
Happily, the dumb-ass glee of The Ramones is never far away, particularly on unrequited love chugs like 'You Don't Wanna Call' "You think I don't know how to eat dim sum", Donna A deadpans). The superlative 'I Didn't Like You Anyway' ("I knew you were lame/From your wallet chain") is pure AC/DC, though, which may point to uncharted new musical frontiers for The Donnas to explore on their next album.
