8/10 according to on Thu 04 Nov, 2010

Dee Dee and her crew return with a one more single from this years sleeper hit 'I Will Be' entitled 'Bhang Bhang, I'm a Burn Out'. This ones a classic slice of garage pop in the same vein as The Vaselines. It's a light, refreshing little number that muses on the virtues of psychedelic drug abuse. It's a cute little thing with tinny production and an infectious chorus. It's backed by a cover of the Misfits 'Last Caress' which is dealt with in a relatively restrained manner. It sounds like they are playing it miles away due to the daft amount of reverb that saturates every instrument. Still, always nice to hear a Misfits tune. Limited to 400 little blue 7"s. Catch 'em while you can.

Press release

Led by the mysterious Dee Dee, Dum Dum Girls churnout pop music that adheres to her self-proclaimed M.O.: blissed-out buzz-saw. Dee Dee formed the project in late2008 as a solo endeavor the name a nod to both The Vaselines album, Dum-Dum, and the Iggy Pop song Dum DumBoys and released a series of great singles on esteemedlabels like HoZac and Captured Tracks, culminating inthe fab debut album I Will Be on Sub Pop.Dee Dee wrote and recorded the songs that became I WillBe over the first eight months of 2009, and upon completionhanded them over to the legendary Richard Gottehrer(The Angels, Strangeloves, Blondie, The Go-Gos) for production.The result is one of the great pop records of 2010,a tribute to love, loss, fear, fun, the classic pop form of 60sgirl groups and early punk rockers. Bhang Bhang, I m a Burnout is one of the toughestsongs on the album, a fuzz-laden slice of garage pop witha killer chorus that muses on the virtues of psychedelics.It s one of Slumberland s favorite Dum Dum Girls songs,and thanks to their friends at Sub Pop, the label is now releasingit on the perfect 7-inch-single format. Trippy butalso dripping with attitude, Bhang Bhang is Dee Dee sSunset Strip 67 moment. Last Caress on the flip is of course a cover of the classichorror-punk Misfits tune. It hearkens back to Dee Dee smore minimal roots, her fragile vocals and jangling guitargetting right to the pop at the core of the song. While mostMisfits covers try to out-punk the originals, Dee Dee wiselyplays to her strengths and delivers something haunting andcompletely true to her vision.Special pressing of 400 on coloured vinyl.
