When the term "punk rock cover band" is mentioned, two artists come to mind immediately: The all-star cast that makes up Me First & The Gimmie Gimmies, closely followed by our south of the border friends in Manic Hispanic. Well, a new act is trying to push their way onto the scene: four Canadians performing under the moniker Britney's Krack.

Ahem.

The quartet started out of the urge to play some fun party music, but in spite of modern pop music. What they produced is a five-song cover record titled Back In Krack that's void of anything memorable or tolerable for more than one listen. Unlike the aforementioned bands, Britney's Krack fails to do anything with their renditions of pop hits like Ricky Martin's "Livin' La Vida Loca" or chart toppers from Britney Spears and Christina Aguileria. Instead, they just play straight through the songs in typical four-chord punk rock style.

This release is self-produced and shines through the faded ink on a CD-R that's packaged in a DVD case with an incorrect track listing.

BK is gung-hoe about their little project, and I'm willing to bet they're the only ones too.
