The 88

Southern California's The 88 churns out infectious power-pop brimming with saccharine vocal harmonies, stylish quasi-retro productions, and sing-along lyrics. Much like glam-rock forefathers T. Rex, The 88 seduces listeners with distorted guitars and trashy boogie-rock. Meanwhile, generous spoonfuls of pop sugar help it all go down. Of course, The 88 are more than just impersonators of pop icons past--they also provide a refreshing swagger to contemporary pop's possibilities. Whether you are attempting to drown out the irritating coworker in the next cubicle, liven up a drab subway ride, or share a moment with friends, The 88 provide the perfect aural bubblegum for just about any situation.
