Nikki and the Corvettes: Nikki and the Corvettes (LP)

(Munster Records) 16 tracks

Out of print for several years, this album is a stunning power pop gem recorded at a time when this kind of girl group pairing with punk rock was still unusual.

It's one of the most iconic albums released on Greg Shaw's Bomp! Records - and as a 2024 re-release with bonus tracks on top! It's definitely stood the test of time. Check out the tracks, these young ladies wore their collective hearts on their sleeves. This type of girl group combined with punk rock was unusual at the time and provided a much needed antidote to the male dominated skinny tie brigade. Nikki looked like Pam Dawber (Mindy from Mork and Mindy) and sounded like Clare Grogan (from Altered Images), which was instantly endearing. Born and raised in Detroit, Miss Corvette reportedly ran away from home at 16 because her mother wouldn't allow her to attend an MC5 concert.

Greg Shaw wrote in the liner notes of the 20th Anniversary label compilation, Destination Bomp! "Nikki was a tireless worker. Like a coal miner's daughter, she traveled all over the country with her band. She played 200 shows a year. She knew everybody and was a lot of fun to hang out with, so I figured if all her friends were buying the record.... so I signed her. The girl had style and attitude in abundance, and she had master guitarist / songwriter and former romantic Peter James. One of the brightest minds in Detroit" The lady herself kindly provided the following summary. "We went to LA and signed to Bomp, maybe in 1979, but Greg wasn't sure what to do with us. We did the Honey Bop single with Ronny Weiser on Rollin Rock and a couple songs with the Kessel Brothers. We started something with Kim Fowley that didn't work. They kept trying different producers until we finally decided to go back to Detroit and record the album ourselves. We didn't have a lot of experience, but we knew what we wanted and Detroit was a part of it, so we recorded the album and had a lot of fun doing it. Peter wanted us to be more poppy and I wanted to do more punk. We kind of met in the middle with what I've always called bubblegum punk. I can't believe it's been 43 years since it came out and there are still kids discovering it and people who grew up with it still listening to it. I keep hearing from people of all ages from all over the world how much they love this album, and that really, really means a lot to me!" Listen to the phenomenon for yourself.
