WE ARE TWISTED F****ING SISTER REVIEWED
“We Are Twisted F****ing Sister” works because it did what the director did in his previous work “The Nomi Song”. It generates enthusiasm for the time before the subject became mega huge. That first decade of Sister allows fans to see what happened right up to the big breakthrough. I didn’t know that the band was bigger in Jersey and Connecticut before taking over the world. Plus, it’s so weird seeing Dee Snider out of drag. Yeah, I know he hasn’t been in the get-up for twenty years or more.
Twisted Sister just occupies one of those milestones that defines the 1980s for most people. Somewhere between the love of Animal House and the need to rock, the band exists in this warm place between the J Geils Band and the New York Dolls. It’s edgy without being too underground, but it’s broad enough to become beer commercial music. The real gem of this set is the over five hours of cut and bonus material that shows how big the band’s world really was leading up to 1982. Any classic rock band should be lucky to get this kind of loving treatment.
