Although Lunachicks often get lumped in with riot grrrl bands like Bratmobile and Bikini Kill, they often display a wackiness and love of gross-out humor that aligns them more with male punkers like NOFX. What's more, Lunachicks simply have better chops and catchier hooks than many of their peers, an attribute that makes Jerk of all Trades a surprisingly fun listen. Theo Kogan's commanding voice leads the charge with admirable skill, recalling Siouxsie Sioux and even Nina Hagen, while addressing some hilariously juvenile subject matter on songs like "Ring + Run" and "Buttplug."
