Girl One and The Grease Guns

The sound of Mute Records circa 1980 comes to Squirrel Records in 2013.  It's not often that I get it together to pre-order records but I was determined to make the effort for the confident debut 7" from Girl One and The Grease Guns.  "Driving Without Headlights (Once Again)" is a total thrill ride which is especially noteworthy for the tremendous vocal from the chucklesomely named Sissy Space Echo (aka Caroline McChrystal of The Blanche Hudson Weekend and formerly of The Manhattan Love Suicides etc.) and that tidy little keyboard melody which could've been rescued from Vince Clarke's cutting room floor.  Let's hope indie discos around the world eat it up and turn it up - it's about time their walls shook to something new!
