Veruca Salt: American Thighs (Minty Fresh/DGC; CD and cassette)

Holly Gleason, The New York Times, 19 February 1995

THE ONLY buzz louder than the feedback-laden guitars on Veruca Salt's American Thighs is the hype surrounding the Chicago-based foursome. This alternative rock group is anchored by the singer-songwriters Nina Gordon and Louise Post. The band's debut album is a girl's-eye view of despair and ennui that defines Generation X.
