Norway - Full Moon 83 - 07/13/03
Take Me to the Race
Big Dipper Records
A new EP from garage-rockettes The Launderettes. A 4-pack this time, of greasy, sweaty,
organ/guitar driven garage pop/rock. The quintet has been presented twice before by us; their
single Rebel Love and their debut album
Shaken And Disturbed.
Denim-ly clothed and suitably named Lucy (vox), Candy (guitar), Dandy (organ), Vicky (bass),
and Bambi (drums) pump out 1960's inspired grooves, quite standard formatted, but whit a certain
whimsical charm. They do their stuff 100 per cent. However, I find their songs a bit anonymous,
lacking the final punch needed, which I guess they're ready to show live.
Best track: "Too Late To Say You're Sorry", which tends to be the poppiest of the four.
