Tacoma’s Girl Trouble and Seattle/LA’s Popdefect (although they seem to have been born out on the road, probably crossing North Dakota in pitch blackness), go back decades, boast cult followings, and have had movies dedicated to them—and both remain criminally underhyped. All I can do to un-underhype them is to affirm that Girl Trouble strike exactly the right balance between manifesting rock’s big-dick/big-ego strut and satirizing the same, while Popdefect perfect primal, minor-key wails from the id.
