The Best of the Waitresses

Waitresses, The - CD - Rating: 10/10

“I Know What Boys Like” was a personal new wave favorite for me as a kid. It was featured on K-tel’s The Beat new wave compilation—a comp which served as a launching point for so many bands for me (except for Graham Parker whose track absolutely sucked). The songs here are funny, energetic and fronted with snotty, attitude-filled vocals that are everything that 60s garage rock vocalists shrived for. This is also a rare example of saxophone working in pop music!
