Magnificent debut release from a 60's influenced indie-pop affair from Glasgow, Scotland. Bubblegum Lemonade is principally a man called Laz, a 12-string Rickenbacker enthusiast with more than a few Velvet Underground, Byrds, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Razorcuts records in his collection. Title track ‘Ten Years Younger’ updates the Mary Chain’s take on The Velvets with nice bursts of electronica and beautiful female backing vocals courtesy of Sandra from fellow Glaswegians Strawberry Whiplash. ‘The Tomorrow People’ is a wonderful 60’s-drenched jangle pop gem that should please even the most ardent Byrds or Razorcuts fan, while ‘Unsafe at Any Speed’ is Ralph Nader meets the Mary Chain with liberal dollops of reverb and distortion. Finally, ‘That Thing You Do!’ is a glorious cover of the title song from the mid-90’s hit movie of the same name. Written by Adam Schlesinger (Ivy, Fountains of Wayne), the song was originally credited to the fictitious band The Wonders and needed to be roughed up a bit as it is here. A fantastic closer to an impressive debut EP. With insanely catchy songs, masterful 12-string guitars, shimmering pop melodies, and the feedback drenched sounds of the Mary Chain, Bubblegum Lemonade is an extraordinary addition to the Matinée roster proving that old school indie will never go out of style. Limited to 1000 copies in custom minijacket sleeve.
