All Music Guide:

The Soviettes formed in the midst of Minneapolis winter in 2000. Without want for last names, Annie (guitar/vocals), Sturgeon (guitar/vocals), Suzy (bass), and Danny (drums) tore into recording, and by 2003 had issued their self-titled debut via Adeline. It was fuzzy, punky, striped, and ballsy, and made an impression in the Twin Cities and beyond. The ingeniously titled II followed in 2004, and featured more bratty one- and two-minute songs with names like "#1 Is Number Two" and "Pass the Flashlight." By this point the Soviettes had spread their love all over town, not to mention the plains states and points west. Fat Wreck noticed and signed the quartet in 2004. The Soviettes' III LP was issued on June 28, 2005.
