Alaska-J : Pop Idiots

They claim to be a musical blend of Britney Spears and the Sex Pistols. Which is pretty vacant any way you cook it. So, coordinates duly punched in, Alaska-J proceed to bash out some snotty, brash power-pop that celebrates the transitory thrills of snotty, brash power-pop. They're the people in Camden on a Saturday buying tight T-shirts in red and orange that say things like 'Pop Tart'. It's hard to see who's going to love Alaska-J's pop with 'attitude'. The kiddie massive won't. They have no attitude. They're nine. And anyone with an 'attitude' is too busy buying Limp Bizkit's rather fine 'Rollin'' single to pay this much mind. Still, there'll be a fistful of 30-something men
who'll fancy the 'feisty' Japanese girl bass player.
