7" Series 449: Dum Dum Girls – Bhang Bhang I'm A Burnout

Great little single on blue transparent vinyl, from the time Dum Dum Girls still sounded gritty on record. Which they don’t anymore, or at least, on last year’s Only In Dreams (Spotify). A clean sound takes away a big part of the charm, in my humble opinion. This kind of garage-pop should sound dirty, raw, lo-fi.

Anyways, “Bhang Bhang” is a track from their first album, I Will Be (Spotify), “Last Caress”, a cover of The Misfitsoriginal from 1980, is exclusive to this single. The 7″ has been reissued by Sub Pop earlier this year, on blue and white vinyl.

Dum Dum Girls just released a new EP, End Of Daze (Spotify), recorded with Sune Rose Wagner from The Raveonettes.
