You see that hot rocker-chick at the end of the bar, the one in the ripped-up jeans? The one with the long hair that’s three different colors. Yeah, her. She is liquored-up and pissed off about something. She came in here about an hour ago and rejected every guy who went up to her and tried to buy her a drink. She’s been putting dollars into the jukebox and playing old Stones songs all night. Now she’s doing shots with the bartender. Stop staring. She’s hot all right: she looks like she might fuck your brains out or kill you or both…

With a mouth full of attitude and riffs for days, New York City’s Slunt is a two-guy, two-girl band that spits rawk. (The bass player’s name is Jenny Gunns, for chrissakes.) Armed with a 5-song EP produced by Anthrax’s Rob Caggiano, Slunt is poised to break out of Don Hill’s and into your car…

Riding high on a road to riffage paved by AC/DC, Motorhead, Led Zep and RATT, “The Best Thing” puts the pedal down hard while singer/guitarist Abby Genet whines like she wants you then throws a drink in your face… Genet nails the “rock-grrl bitch n’ roll voice,” surpassing all others as she wails, “I am the best thing you ever had!” (The video for this song is also featured on the enhanced portion of the disc. Fans of girl-girl kissing take note.)

“Not About You” and “I Wanna Be Your Only One” don’t pack the same headbanging whallop of the opener, but allow Genet to let her voice warm toward “radio-friendly.” She curses up a storm, though, but Rob Harrington’s speedy guitar and Charles Ruggerio’s cymbal-crashing choruses of the first song are replaced with a less edgy sound. Pleasantly pop though they are, (perhaps shrewdly, in what could be Slunt’s bid for a record deal), Genet’s voice is alluring, purring her way through “Not About You” like an East Coast Belinda Carlisle. Though she spits tequila as she sings, “I wanna be your only one/ and maybe you could be one of mine…” These two songs seem like the perfect warm-up for the bass driven fun of the Romeo Void cover of “Never Say Never,” with Genet back to her sexy-angry slurring “I might like you better if we slept together…” A perfect song to cover (though The Waitresses “I Know What Boys Like” would not have been out of place for Slunt given the singer’s range); properly souped-up for the new millennium. The last song, “Inside,” closes the disc on a slow note as Genet sings a sex come-on (“eat my sex and lick my flower”) that vaguely recalls to mind Aerosmith’s “Round And Round.”

All in all, a great little EP from a rockin’ band: more pop and polished than Fireball Ministry or Nashville Pussy, but just as fun. Whether or not Slunt is up to the task of topping “The Best Thing,” or becomes a cute Hot Topic band remains to be seen. For the time being, enjoy a little Slunt, and if you can, go see them live. But remember, just because you buy these chicks a couple of shots, it doesn’t mean they’ll sleep with you… or will they?
