timmy gogo As someone else said, flawless. This is exactly what I wish more bands strived for. This album as a whole is just inspiring and glorious and wonderful. I own it on CD but I needed to comment here so others could know the joy that it heralds. Thank you Kung Fu Monkeys Favorite track: Rollerskate Date.

about

12 odes to summer fun, the album mixes the punky exuberance of the Undertones, The Primitives, and the Modern Lovers with a love for 1960s beach pop and shaggy garage rock.

The cd was originally released on the Mutant Pop imprint (MP 511), but shortly after coming out, Mutant Pop went into hibernation.

They released 13 7" eps and two digital eps. They also produced a full-length album, a live album/dvd, and a compilation cd of their first 11 eps. They also wrote some of the music for the Chris Gethard Show.
