- Girls World by The Scratch
8/10 Brett Staff review, 20 August 2008Brian's got a collection of Girls World dolls that he grooms in tears while lamenting his lost locks, one time I went around to his house and he didn't answer the door for ages, when he did I walked in to find a little tea party set up with several tiny cups full of wholegrain mustard and a collection of empy chairs. After an uncomfortable conversation he eventually ushered me out but as I was leaving I saw a little pair of plastic eyes peeking out from inside a suspiciously crammed cupboard. I've never told anyone about this before. The Scratch are a band who do a kind of throwback, jaunty pop-garage rock thing that's good fun in a totally disposable sort of way. You can tell they don't take themselves very seriously which is pretty much a must if this sort of thing is going to be stomachable. We got a little poster with it with a classic quote saying that 'these kids are literally shitting transistor trouncing tunes by the hundredweight' which amused us for a few seconds until we moved on to the next inane bit of rubbish. It kicks off in a Shangri-Las style with some proper Northern bloke going 'Andy, have you dyed your hair?' before the song starts up, it's easily the highlight of the whole thing and now I've just ruined it for you. Soz.
10/10 The Founder Customer review,
I checked this out after reading a review by some amateur hack on Get Ready to Rock describing it as a cross between 'Bowie's Laughing Gnome period and Squeeze'.It's a nice throwaway line, but unfortunately so wide of the mark, I'm wondering if the journalist in question actually listened to the track before reviewing it. A shame really, as this is a perfect little slice of fun guitar that's less Bowie meets Squeeze than Mud meets the Buzzcocks (just fancy that). The nice thing, too, is that the B-side Sweet Surprise holds its own too, which is a refreshing change these days. Catchier than crabs at a Camden sleepover.
