Picks and Pans Review: Drop Everything
Lady Pank is a Polish band but, no, this is not a polka album. It's not a bunch of bowling songs either. This is a rock band (their name translates more or less as "Lady Punk") that is really from Poland and plays quite a lively, jangly form of pop music. Lead guitarist Jan Borysewicz, whose instrument is tuned so that it sometimes sounds like an electric banjo, is especially impressive. Singing in phonetically learned English, lead vocalist Janusz Panasewicz—he'll become Johnny Pan in a second, if the band ever moves here—is often incomprehensible, though he manages better on the tune Do, Do than on, say, The Zoo Without a Keeper. Drummer Jaroslaw Szlagowski propels things nicely, though, and, novelty aside, the result is a punchy, dance-able rock album. (MCA)
