Guilty Girls


  • Despite the consistent strength of their music, the veteran Boston alternative rock band Buffalo Tom have never enjoyed commercial success. This is a track from Skins, their second album after a nine year hiatus between 1998 and 2007.
  • Singer-guitarist Bill Janovitz said to Spin magazine of this rocker: "It's a real Buffalo Tom kind of song, and could sit right next to a lot of what's on (1993's) Big Red Letter Day. But the lyrics have a more wizened perspective on things, and I think that's the biggest difference in our writing… I think that song has to do with people finding themselves in weird romantic complications at our age group."
  • The band's name is derived from the band Buffalo Springfield and the first name of the drummer Tom Maginnis.
