"...Back in 1990 when I was writing Noise For Heroes as a print fanzine, I used to get piles of promo records to review ... One day I was going through the pile and out comes a record by a band called the Cosmic Dropouts. They were from Norway. Imagine my surprise when the needle dropped into the groove and this blast of garage punk roared out. I figured it had to be a mistake…this must be the Nomads recording under alias or something. Except the Dropouts played with a turbocharged style that’s faster and more energetic. Fabulous! And so their "Groovy Things" lp entered hot rotation in my house, and when it subsequently was released on CD, I snapped that up, too... In 1996 I went to Norway and found that there were two more Cosmic Dropouts lps that had only been released there: "Hoolabaloo" and "Sonic Circus"
