Overview

Peep Show

You've gotta respect a band that swings for the fences with its first-plate appearance in the big leagues, and that's exactly what this Texas-bred quartet does on their self-titled debut. Front man (and namesake) Johnny Goudie doesn't have much time for subtlety or small gestures. Instead, he's immersed himself (and his bandmates) in a stew of glammy, slammy influences that range from the sleazy strut of the New York Dolls (evident on the lascivious "Baby Hello") to the unrepentant new wave hookiness (which crops up in "Julie," cowritten by Jane Weidlin of the Go-Go's). Guitarist Jimmy Messer contributes to the sonic sweep via old-school riffing that alternately recalls Mick Ronson (on the shimmering "Buy Me") and Thin Lizzy-era Gary Moore. Unlike the vast majority of today's guitar-toting rabble, Goudie are neither pissed off nor moped out: They simply want to have a good time, all the time. And if that sounds too Spinal Tap to you, well, go off somewhere and break stuff -- the Peep Show awaits everyone else.
