    New Release??

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...930225?ie=UTF8

    http://www.myspace.com/teenageharlets

    Entitled "Up The Fixx".

    Anyone know any more info, maybe secret fans, maybe packed with cover versions??

    From Amazon.com -
    The Teenage Harlets don't play rock & roll they play danger. Flying a defiant finger in the face of the San Francisco garage scene since 1999, Teenage Harlets style rock has no tiresome monologs, no politcs, no talking, no tuning, no fancy knobs or effects. They play revved up, stripped down, non-stop short attention-span surf-garage-punk-rock-mayhem that will have you singing and dancing while you run for your life. Worried? No need to fear. Thanks to Springman Records and the latest in garage-based recording technology, you can dance along in the relative safety of your own home as the Harlets tear through 22 songs in 30 minutes on their new record, "Up the Fixx".

    That averages 1:36 per song, length-wise. Good they they admit they have nothing to say! LOL!

    Amazing. So many bands and artists use the name 'fixx' in their name without realizing it is NOT a word but rather a pre-existing band name. You won't find fixx in the dictionary. 'Fix' was and still is the spelling of the word. Somewhere along the way the double x spelling got appropriated for the meaning of the word in reference to 'something to quell an addiction'. Gee... when do you suppose that happened... oh maybe 1983 when our band popularized this variant spelling. It's gotten so tired. These bands like Techno-Fixx and DJ Fixx and Phixx try to be hip and edgy so they insert that variant spelling into their name. I wish the band had copyrighted this spelling so they could get acts like these to stop using it. Real annoying.
