Gold Chains and Sue Cie

When the World Was Our Friend (Kill Rock Stars)

Gold Chains (Topher LaFata) teams up with good friend Sue Cie (Sue Costabile) for the lighthearted When the World Was Our Friend. Here, the duo inject dance cheekiness into punk, resulting in music that often borders on novelty but mostly rocks a tough groove. "California Nites" blends guitar riffs that are more rockabilly than funky disco yet still conjure mirrored silver balls, while "Show Us Your Heart" rides that brilliantly fine line between annoyance and memorable pop trash. This album is tailor-made to piss off genre purists, but if you like rock that likes to boogie or house that is silly and not up its own uptight ass, it resembles something of a sure shot. -- Tamara Palmer
