Every once in a while, they stumble upon a perfect combination of cooing background vocals, rumbling ‘50s school dance bass lines and frenetic punk riffs.
Barring acoustic clunkers like “Before we Fall” and “End at the Beginning”, it’s a fun record to listen to.
Lead track “Wanting More” is an ode to the Shangri-Las-do-Psychocandy noise pop of The Raveonettes
Dystopian psychobilly fuzz that lifts the majority of its ideas from the Raveonettes' Whip it On EP.
Unpretentious in its pursuit of sunny guitar harmonies.
Messy, amateurish tripe from a band that would get a lot better very quickly
A supremely catchy, free-wheeling glimpse of Ringo’s early sound, and a compelling mini-album to accompany Colour Trip.
The wiry riffs and noisy effervescence of Psychocandy are back, but accompanied by a fair amount of studio filler.
A classic for a million reasons, but mostly because its influence cuts across everything from dream pop, alternative rock and shoegaze
Pop melodies rooted in ‘50s rockabilly and girl group harmonies, slathered in loud distortion and blank, almost cheesily self-pitying lyrics. A post-punk triumph.
