a1: Sixteens Theme
a2: She Said Alright
b: When the Sun Comes Up
Label: Spin The Bottle Records (purchase here)
Lafayette’s Sweet Sixteens have just released their debut 7″ on Toronto’s Spin the Bottle Records. Nobunny-esq ragers on the a-side (you know – Ramones riffs + drum machines + trashcan production) and a slow jam on the b-side. The party songs are awesome – “Sixteens Theme” featuring party-blowers, “She Said Alright” works on getting the blood going, though it is the lament – “When the Sun Comes Up” – which features the prominent use of the “March” rhythm on a Casio-SK1, is the highlight here. If you love Nobunny, Romanc Novels, Eric and the Happy Thoughts and Hunx, there is no reason why you wouldn’t love this too.
