"Third album by cult UK Garage Punk Rock’n’Rollers, The Good Time Charlies ! . This should be on Norton, Crypt or Bomp and not some tiny French punk label, for a start as it’s classic retro-Garage Rock. Veterans of the English South Coast scene (ex members of the Green Hornets, TV21…) they took their name from a major label rejection letter explaining how the band in question were seemingly having far too much fun to ever have commercial potential. Described over-enthusiastically as ‘the ultimate gonzoid rock’n’roll party album’ it certainly is the smartest dumb, seriously fun LP for a while. A million influences (Jerry Lee Lewis, Ramones, Saints, Standells, the Milkshakes) from across the decades and from the coolest genres; 50’s rock’n’roll, Nuggets psych, surf-punk, …boogie-rock? Supporting Jet seemed to have a profound effect on what was formerly perhaps a Medway-style punk band into the MC5, but no matter. ‘Porn Collection’ is an infectious frat-rocker about a girl ‘with a purty face and a dirty mind’. Other songs concern the beach, hot tubs, food, lust and guitars. 'Pie Shop Locator' is a one of two sublime instrumentals. Fifteen killer songs plus five bonus tracks add up to a thoroughly fine selection of steamy, stomping, sing-a-long rock’n’roll." G. BABEY
