Formed in the late 70s in Detroit, Nikki & the Corvettes were part of the late 1970s/early 80s girl group revival that rode in on the tidal wave of PowerPop bands popular at the time. Their only album is a PowerPop masterpiece with a decent dose of punk rock, a perfect mix and they in top form. A lot of infos are present in the web so I use the following words because this review describes their LP very clearly: "If the hormones of teenage girls could talk, they would probably sound very much like this trio of singers from Detroit who have debuted with one of the most delightful records of the year so far. Nikki Corvette, Kristi Kay (who has since left the group) and Lori Jeri have recaptured the spirit of the old Shangri-Las and crank out enthusiastic tunes about partying, boys, drive-ins, boys, dancing and boys. And if they approach the "girl group" musical genre with less wit than Blondie, they at least have more conviction. Among the dozen originals (all penned by Nikki and lead guitarist Peter James) in this album are such cheeky offerings as Back Seat Love, Gimme, Gimme (who says the Me Decade is over?) and C'mon, which confesses "Don't know where I'm headed/But I still gotta go." The back-up band is less precise than the Corvettes (as is the technical production) but even that can't restrain the charms of the group's gee-whiz-thank-you-Ms. songs. For some odd reason, no major label has signed this cheery trio." (Picks & Pans Review, February 23, 1981, Vol. 15, #7) - Nikki & The Corvettes disbanded in 1981. At this time, it was still unusual to have a woman front a rock band. The notoriety that Nikki Corvette earned for her role in breaking those barriers led to her being namechecked in the song "Gimme My Radio" by The Donnas. So this whole album is so damn catchy and you cannot stop listening to it.
