If like me and nothing gets the pulse quickening like a shot of killer surf twang then allow me to introduce you to Goggle A who hail from Japan and have just sneaked out a killer 8 track beach twisting dandy by the name of ‘Sayonara Summer Hootenanny’. This babe comes via the Green Cookie imprint all pressed up on 10 inches of heavy duty wax and strictly limited to just 300 copies. As to Goggle A they collectively craft lost sounds that imagine a 50’s golden age of bubblegum pop, among these rapido riff rifled groove you’ll encounter the carefree summer sun innocence of the Beach Boys and Jan and Dean all carefully studded to the back of ’Karen’s’ leathers while ‘go go girl and twist boy’ is kissed with the strut cool of the Phantom Surfers. Elsewhere ‘Tokio Duck Dive’ is needle threaded to a killer Mexicana shake down that recalls the Los Straitjackets while ’Steerrin Fun Fun’ is just pure roadster buzz pop cutting shapes in the sand. All said best of the set is the parting ’Yazora No Hoshi’ – a slamming punch you in the face slab of garage rumble that has more than a subtle whiff of Johnny Kidd and the Pirates about its wares. – The Sunday Experience (27 Dec 2013).
