LA's Period Bomb hearkens back to the Slits, Lunachicks and Super-Heroines: bands that cut a loud, proud and visually flamboyant swath through the punk scenes of their respective times. Period Bomb beats the boys at their own volume-dealing game and adds just the right hint of "I'll cut you if you look at me sideways" intensity. On the evidence of the EPs released so far, the band is pitched perfectly between riot grrrl and postpunk weirdness. Live, the whole experience veers toward DIY punk psychedelia, with dirt, glitter, sweat, rhinestones, blood, spandex, vinyl and confrontation making for the perfect spectacle ... and soundtrack.
