ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Girls: Gail Petersen (lead vocals/rhythm guitar) Roxy Andersen (lead guitar/backing vocals) Doreen Holmes (drums and percussion)

The Sound: Powerful rock with a punk influence, strong pop melodies, pounding guitars, a driving beat and great girl vocals. Numerous listeners have compared the bands sound to the likes of The Pretenders, The Killers, The Ramones, Blondie and Patti Smith.

The Story: The Catholic Girls when schoolgirls Gail Petersen and Roxy Andersen put their guitars together to form the first all-female band from New Jersey that would be signed to a major label. With the edition of Doreen Holmes on drums, The Catholic Girls released an album on MCA both in the USA and Australia and also on a special Armed Forces edition by Radio Free Europe. They embarked on 2 national tours, received widespread commercial airplay, and debuted on MTV to the music of their new wave anthem Boys Can Cry. In 1999, Renaissance Records revived the original album in CD format. Its success in chains such as Borders and websites like Amazon.com led to rapid sales and an impressive ranking. Fans of the band from The 80s were thrilled to have the girls in plaid back, and many new fans were made along the way. In 2002, the band released Make Me Believe as their first indie CD, embarked on a tri-state tour (NY/NJ/PA), opened for acts like Dave Davies of the Kinks, Gene Loves Jezebel and performed at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood for The International Pop Overthrow Festival. In addition the Asbury Park Music Awards nominated them for Top Rock Band of the Year and their latest video for the title song Make Me Believe reached the charts in Billboard. In 2004 their CD single Summer Vacation/Rockn America (a tribute to Joey Ramone) was released nationally. It sold at a brisk pace and gained momentum with college and internet airplay and glowing reviews. Then Little Steven (of The E Street Band and Sopranos fame) saw the girls play live one night and instantly converted. He's been playing Rock'n America on a regular basis on his radio show The Underground Garage that is syndicated nationally and internationally. Bill Kelly, a long-time altar boy has also been broadcasting the single on Sirius Satellite Radio! Not to mention hundreds of college, internet, and commercial radio such as WRAT, WNTI, and WFMU.

Right Now: The Catholic Girls are ready to spread the gospel of rockn roll from The Vatican to Your Garage and beyond! Their latest full length CD, MEET THE CATHOLIC GIRLS was released 1/20/2006 an auspicious day in music history. The front cover recreates the photo from their first record with the three original members: Gail, Roxy, and Doreen on a school bus but wit a modern, psychedelic, sixties, twist. The CD features15 tracks that include something for everyone. Theres punk, garage, blues, pop, a ballad that will make you cry, A Chuck Berry influenced song about Linden, New Jersey and even a little Latin but its all Rock n and Roll to thee! The CD includes full lyric sheets that read like any girls confessions about: boys, heartbreak, pain, crushes, true love, true rejection, freedom, cars, rebellion, New Jersey, sex, and breaking loose with a guitar in hand on stage .A tour is in the works that will include national and international venues and so is a music video and a rockumentary. As the bands reach has expanded, so has the energy that continually drives The Catholic Girls to transform their listeners into full-fledged rock and roll believers! Maybe there was a time when The Catholic Girls set out to prove that they could play with the boys. This undisputed, todays Catholic Girls prove again and again that they can break all the rules and rock the pants off just about anyone, in any venue, anywhere!

Brand New! Single by The Catholic Girls! - BROKEN RECORD/AIRPLAY with bonus tracks of GOD MADE YOU (EURO DANCE MIX) AND CHRISTMAS WITH THIS GIRL a song for the rock'n song for the holidays!

Hot!
I've enjoyed many songs from this band in the past, but this might be their best yet! AIRPLAY is one their hottest tracks ever,with a driving rhythm. BROKEN RECORD is a Beatle-esque/girl-group rocker, with a stronger guitar edge than some of their earlier tracks. The dance remix of the 1982 GOD MADE YOU is a welcome addition. And a Christmas song bonus track to boot! The disc is a no-brainer...get it! You won't be disappointed.

Potent rhythm!
Throbbing rhythmic song (AIRPLAY)...great to drive to (IF you have a police scanner, that is.) Love the guitar break. And BROKEN RECORD is a sweet slice of girl-group heaven. Really liked the remix of their earlier GOD MADE YOU. And having a Christmas song (with lots of garage fuzz) is a nice bonus, just in time for the holidays. Each song here is different from the other...something very few bands can claim. Love it!

God gave rock n Roll to ya!
When God invented rock n' roll, He didn't want it to be a all boys network. So he sent three sweeties from Jersey to spread the good word and Voila! Gail, Roxy, and Doreen come up with yet another winner. Yeah God gave rock n' roll to Ya.
