ONE OF THE BEST POWER POP BANDS.
Archive for Undertones
This is one of the best power pop songs ever written.
This a review for The Boy Toy’s new 45 Girls Like You on Spin The Bottle Records.
Some of you may remember them as Ryan Pitts & the Boy Toy’s. No longer now just the Boy Toy’s. According to Pitts he had pissed off so many venues that he wanted to drop his name so people thought it was different band. They are a perfect sound if you are looking for a 60′s pop mixed with early power pop. Taking influences from the Undertones, Paul Collins Beat, Elton Monetello, Dictators, Kinks, Searchers, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Exploding Hearts, New York Dolls, Johnny Thunders, Nobunny, etc………………
The side A tracks are Girl’s Like You and I Want You.
Girl’s Like You is a really catchy tune. It’s a anti love song. Talking about being with the wrong type of girls. It’s just a reminder of getting stuck with the wrong girls can happen over and over again.
I want you!!!!! This is a great a sing a long song a real crowd please live. This one is about finding the right one and really letting them know. It’s really good 50′s / 60′s dance groove. Kinda like a Gino Washington song if it was slowed down.
The B track is Black and Blue and Grey. This another great romantic song from the Boy’s. Starting out with great lyrics ” I could give you diamond rings but that’s not what you want. You want the other things” A song about trying to be changed by your significant other. Making you look a fool.
As you can see most of there songs are all about Life, Love, Heart Break.
The is a highly recommended 45.
My rating 10 out of 10 if you like Nobunny, Paul Collins Beat, Hunx and His Punx, Milk And Cookies, Sweet Sixteens,King Khan BBQ, Gino Washington, Kinks.
