about

Power pop classic from 1999 available again, now with bonus tracks.

released 24 July 2012
FINALLY, here is a record that not only understands, but honestly embraces and exploits that oft-mishandled bridge between the most cutely melodic of mid-Sixties pop ("Skating Rink" could actually become part of Herman's Hermits' canon, I kid you knot!) and the crunchy-guitar urgency that's underpinned only the best of rock 'n' roll ever since ("Don't You Wanna," "Goodbye Rose," and especially "I Became Somebody Else" are pure hard-pop ravers that just beg me to attend a Lolas concert appearance --and quick). Elsewhere, "Sophia" is the kinda tune Pete Townshend hasn't been able to bless us with since about 1968, and head-Lola Tim Boykin's utterly gummy vocal washes bring a shimmering sense of buoyant big fun to, mentioning just a few, "The Best Part," "Otaku," and the utterly astonishing title tune itself. Why, speaking of chewy chewy, these guys aren't even afraid to cover an Archies tune -- my FAVORITE, in fact -- "Feelin' So Good"! - Gary Pig Gold "In Music We Trust"
