The Happy Thoughts

The Happy Thoughts have chewed up and spat out the bubblegum of their debut single from three years ago as Eric and the Happy Thoughts, toughened up and stripped back their sound to pre-British Invasion rock'n'roll basics.

This delirious (and bloody brilliant) album combines the key elements of Eric LaGrange's other bands: the no-nonsense garage pop of The Cave Weddings and the rama lama rush of Romance Novels.

Buddy Holly - not for nothing did Romance Novels have a single called Peggy Sue - Roy Oribson and The Everly Brothers all spring to mind, only louder, faster and (almost) out of control.
