Synopsis

Amazon.com
This exhilarating, teenaged Scottish trio steamroll through 18 postpunk blasts that will leave all but the terminally bored with ear-splitting grins. Keep the Undertones and Madness in mind as you romp through zip-gun rides like "Tell It to the Kids," "Poster Parent" and "Dinosaur Germs." Between songs they drop such bonus shards of wisdom as "If you buy a guitar over 40 pounds, you're mad." --Jeff Bateman

High-Energy Fusion Music
Casey (Spoonerism@aol.com) | Berlin, CT | 08/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"During one of my friend's "musical exchanges," he lent me a copy of Bis' "This is Teen-C Power!" I immediately fell in love with the three teens from Scotland, and scoured my local music stores looking for anything by this amazing band. After a long search, I found this CD, sprung the money, and initiated myself into the Teen-C Nation. This CD is a 73 minute stomp and romp through punk/disco fusion, complete with piercingly satirical lyrics and a charmingly skewed view of the world. You won't be dissapointed unless you're a Skinny Tie :)"

"Bis are a fun band. They make you think, but above all they make you wanna dance. Comparisons could be made to a less annoying and abrasive Atari Teenage Riot with their techno-beats and punk rock guitars and male-female vocals, or Nation Of Ulysses with their youth-power anthems. The drawback with this album is that it's much too long. If they pared it down to about 12 songs, it'd be a great album. As it is, it's just well above average."
