about

"How do I even begin a review of my favorite album of this century? I suppose I begin by saying it's my favorite album of this century!" - Lord Rutledge

"Presaging the punky power pop revival that hit later in the decade, the quartet knocks out cool tune after cool tune, from the luscious “Christy” and the defiant “Why Do I Like You” to the effervescent “All About Makin’ Out” and the irresistible “Tongue Tied". Rejoice, power pop fanatics – Tina and the Total Babes is back and holds up very nicely." - The Big Takeover

"She's So Tuff, packed with tough & sticky-sweet songs about hot boys and heartbreak, is everything a power pop album should aspire to be. Original power pop hits like "Tongue Tied" and "Why Do I Like You" are perfectly complemented by homages to girl groups ("Tragedy"), bubblegum ("That's The Way I Want It", a reworking of The Messengers' "That's The Way A Woman Is"), and arena-sized glam rock ("It's Tina Time"). Whether you recall She's So Tuff fondly and want to own it again or are encountering Tina and the Total Babes for the very first time (you lucky dogs!), I cannot recommend this album enough. This is, as advertised, a benchmark album in the modern power pop revival." - Faster And Louder

"You can see what attracted Rum Bar when you take a listen to “Why Do I Like You” as it slams out the power pop." - Boston Groupie News

“Happy Anniversary and thank you for bringing this one back! I’ve been playing all of ‘She’s So Tuff’ for at least the last decade. A timeless album and a perfect example of ‘Music that Deserves to be Heard’ and now, there is an even better chance of it! Here’s to the next 20!” - “Boris” Boden (The Secret Weapon on Woody Radio)

Benchmark album in the modern power pop revival. Tina Lucchesi formerly of the Bobbyteens and Trashwomen hooks up with Travis Ramin and goes hi-fi for a spectacular dose of legit 70's power pop & punk rock.

The initial release of "She's So Tuff" came out on Sympathy For The Record Industry in the early 2000’s and is a delicious slice of power pop goodness with tough hooks and lot’s of attitude! The album got great reviews and is a must have for the undergound power pop fanatic! 2/3 of this group would go on to back Nikki Corvette in the Stingrays.
