"Trouble" is great.

Taking sides; Shampoo vs Daphne & Celeste vs The Cheeky Girls.

Girl Power. And Trouble, obviously.

one year passes...
The album of T.A.T.U. got me interested.... So which ones are the best?

"School Is Boring."

Aside from that, I'm not a big fan: "Trouble" is terrible.

Trouble was great! I have the album, but not much of the rest of it was very good, I thought.

Blisters and Bruises!

"bouffant headbutt" by miles.

'kinky ken' is unbelievably good.
it was the b. side of trouble.

I don't know their "Blisters and Bruises" (much to my shame - see my email address !) but I loooove the Spring cover version. Therefore it has to win my vote.

I know what boys like & Viva la megababes were good, also.

i was so wrong: "trouble" is great!!

J.D. (Justyn Dillingham), Monday, 18 July 2005 11:11 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i didn't know there were any more songs than trouble. but i did love it. it was (is) pretty catchy.

haha j.d. i was gonna say!

I really like that "Shiny Black Taxi Cab" song. I don't know,"Bouffant Headbutt" is probably the best, though.

I still haven't heard that unreleased (or released only in Japan maybe?) third album. It's my Holy Grail.

Glimmer Globe is a good one. Also Shampoo You. Of course it's been a while...I think both their albums are about half good.

I Love Little Pussy

It's a great title, but not as good as the A-side.

They were totally over-sold in Japan, so you could find Shampoo's album & EP's for equiv. of $1 or less! "Trouble" is the hit, with a really funny video.

SoHoLa (SoHoLa), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 04:19 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

we are shampoo may very well be the best album of the '90s.

jody heatherton (Jody Beth Rosen), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 05:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Another vote for Shiny Black Taxi Cab. I played this recently and I was surprised at how 90's it sounds. At the time I thought it was bouncy leftfield pop, but a lot of the guitar parts reminded me of Sleeper, Elastica etc.

Anna (Anna), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 08:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Please not to ruin my Shampoo love by comparing them to fucking Sleeper kthxbye.

Scream! Scrovula, Scream! (noodle vague), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 08:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Only the guitars! I still love Shampoo.

Anna (Anna), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 08:35 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Sorry. Grumpy hungover kneejerk Sleeperhate.

where is the love for "game boy"?!?!

jody heatherton (Jody Beth Rosen), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 08:48 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

That is fine and understandable Noodle.

Anna (Anna), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 08:51 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

didn't they cover Gary Numan's "Cars"?

ZionTrain (ZionTrain), Tuesday, 19 July 2005 14:22 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

In "viva le megababes" (I think) the line about "I wanna drive the next door neighbors mad" I used to think was "I wanna jump the next door neighbour's lad"

I was thinking about Shampoo only this morning, while listening to that Queens Of Noize track about Indie Boys.

seven years pass...

I was just sitting here thinking "what is the most ridiculous poppy thing I can listen to right now?" and my brain immediately went to Shampoo. Thank goodness it was on spotify, because trying to recreate these sounds from just memory wouldn't have been the fun I was looking for.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 20 February 2013 19:20 (five years ago) Permalink

I thought this was a thread for the movie Shampoo--was going to suggest "Wouldn't It Be Nice" or "Manic Depression."

clemenza, Wednesday, 20 February 2013 19:25 (five years ago) Permalink

I've not seen Shampoo, but I'll look up the soundtrack for later afternoon enjoyment.

bloody hell, how great is 'girl power'!?

not sure i have ever listened to the rest of the album though.

time to possibly rectify that.

mark e, Saturday, 18 July 2015 17:46 (three years ago) Permalink

"You Love It" and "We Play Dumb" were my faves. Really hoping I didn't sell my copies of Girl Power during one of my CD purges now.

The New Gay Sadness (cryptosicko), Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:11 (three years ago) Permalink

well, i really enjoyed that.
so glad it was still hidden in the archive.
so much fun.
'we play dumb' was a definite highlight.
onto westworld now.

putting in a word for 'Zap Pow'

the spotify page for Shampoo also includes this album, which is by a different Shampoo, "an Italian tribute/parody band from Naples, who enjoyed a short period of popularity in the early Eighties as spoofers of The Beatles" according to wiki

Balkan-Boogie (soref), Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:17 (three years ago) Permalink

I read somewhere that Lawrence from Felt/Denim/Go Kart Mozart wrote some songs for Shampoo under a pseudonym, does anyone know which ones?

"’E zizze" (Tits) – Parody of "Day Tripper" (soref), Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:24 (three years ago) Permalink

no !?

had no idea of that .. would make total sense though.

mark e, Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:28 (three years ago) Permalink

ok, checked the sleevenotes of shampoo or nothing!
all songs are credited to the girls, except 'i know what boys like', which is credited to chris butler.

mark e, Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:32 (three years ago) Permalink

wikipedia says it was 'Blisters And Bruises', their first single

"’E zizze" (Tits) – Parody of "Day Tripper" (soref), Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:33 (three years ago) Permalink

also 'Paydirt', both under the name 'Discotheque USA'

"’E zizze" (Tits) – Parody of "Day Tripper" (soref), Saturday, 18 July 2015 18:34 (three years ago) Permalink

'Trouble' is the only one that I remember. Yes, it was catchy. No, I've never rated it.

You’re being too simplistic and you’re insulting my poor heart (Turrican), Saturday, 18 July 2015 20:22 (three years ago) Permalink

Glimmer Globe and Me Hostage from the first album are two of their best.

brave at the time.
however, I think JBR could be onto something.
