On tracks like “Private Room” and the self-referential title track (Bogart is a hairdresser), he more or less reconstructs the sound of the Punx. But his best stab at sloppy/charming punk comes off more like an out-of-tune, frat-rock version of Holly Golightly than any actual imagined girl group (the overkill of the “Be My Baby” beat just doesn’t cut it).
