Retro-Fueled Garage Pop

The High School Sweethearts are Cynthia (Lead Vocals, Percussion), Paige Sixteen (Vocals, Farfisa, Harmonica), John Steele (Guitar), Bill Gill (Guitar), Joel 'Pedro' Sweetheart (Drums). They hail from New Jersey, which I'm sure has shaped their sound.

HSS plays straight up retro garage punk hopped up on loads of hi-octane hooks and melodies. Their songs are true Garage-girl - all about cars, sex, booze, and fightin'. Lovely and sexy if you like tough girls.

They've shared the stage with an amazing number of legendary performers including The Fleshtones, Dead Moon, Flat Duo Jets, The Woggles, The Creatures, The Kowalskis, Jayne County W/The Amazing Cherubs, The Lawn Darts, The Toilet Boys, and The Queers. Warning; please do not drive less than 80 MPH while playing the CD in yr car!
