Dean and Britta, or Galaxie 500’s Dean Wareham and his co-member in Luna Britta Philips, are back making rich, dense pop music. Here they affectionately cover ‘Hey Paula’ together and Britta gives us Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright’ solo. This is gorgeous psyche-pop of the highest order. The 7” vinyl from The Great Pop Supplement is limited to 400 copies and comes with racy artwork from artist Brian Calvin.

Please lord if you are listening’ up there - don’t let me cast my eyes on the sleeve to this record again as long as I am on your green earth. It’s a drawing of two people who bear a strong resemblance to Dean and Britta - how do I put this without causing offence?...Erm...shaggin’. Luckily the record company have kindly provided a plain peace of card to prevent it being seen by the squeamish.
Luckily the music is a lot more agreeable. On the A side Britta Phillips covers Bob Dylan’s ’Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright’ is glistening country rock style, on the flip Dean Wareham (with help from Britta) covers Paul and Paula’s sappy ‘Hey Paula’ in Galaxie 500 style.
7/10 Simon Customer review, 2nd March 2016
OK, I admit it, I only bought this to see the picture!
The picture wasn't as bad as you might have imagined, though I do see why they included a modesty card.
It's a good couple of songs, I really enjoyed them. The cover of Bob Dylan's "Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright" is a fun country-style romp. Maybe a bit of a piss take? I'm not sure as I'm not familiar with Dean & Britta's back catalogue.
I'm also not familiar with the original of Paul and Paula’s "Hey Paula" from the flip side, but it's also good fun.
These are clearly musicians having a good time and not taking themselves Morrissey. I'll look up some of their other work for sure.
