Thanks to Chris over at the Small Takeover (no relation) for always reminding me to re-listen to The Goops, whom I ignored back in the mid-90's. They put out two albums (one on NYHC label, Blackout Records, one on Warner Bros.) that aimed for a sorta Blondie-MC5 hybrid and came off like a sister band to Seattle's The Gits (or the East Bay's Tilt). The Goops were, very loosely, part of an early 90's punk revival in New York that emphasized the sleazy-yet-poppy side of punk (see also, the Devil Dogs, DGeneration, NY Loose and maybe The Vacant Lot).
While the word sleazy and New York are practically synonyms in some people's lexicons, one must be careful describing a female-fronted band that way. However, this sloppy performance below certainly suggest lead singer, Eleanor Whitledge to be more brazenly exhibitionistic than their album covers and publicity shots suggest:
So while the band pummeled they way though a pretty good repertoire, their greatest fame probably came from this single's B-side, a cover of The Foundation's "Build Me Up Buttercup" that Kevin Smith used for the movie Mallrats:
