JANE BOND AND THE UNDERCOVER MEN (Buy CDs by this artist)
Jane Bond and the Undercover Men EP (Ear Movie) 1981

Here are the doings of a post-puberty Valley Girl: she moves to Santa Monica, devises more aggressive ways to go after boys, becomes a debutante, then a party girl, etc. Lisa Mitchell (vocals), her pair of Undercover Men (keyboards and drums) and friends present their sub-sitcom vignettes in a style that floridly mangles, among others, the Waitresses and the B-52's in the process. Flaccid and unfunny, except for a couple of lines in — does this mean something? — "So Bored."

[Jim Green]
