Bubblegum Lemonade – Ten Years Younger

So the White Stripes are no more (elephant tears) but at least their music lives on (real tears). We probably feel a bit more genuine about the loss (or loss of form) of certain Glaswegian duo’s but at least there are bands like Bubblegum Lemonade (with a name like that they hardly need anyone to describe what they sound like) who carry the good fight forward. Lawrence McCluskey is the driving force who along with some of his buddies from his other project Strawberry Whiplash has put out several recordings on the adorable Matinée label. This is the title track from a 2008 EP which as well as boasting the aforementioned J&MC sound contains passages redolent of the Byrds and early Primal Scream. The crux of the piece comes at nearly 3 minutes but before that wonderful moment there is so much to admire. McCluskey is currently putting the finishing touches to the debut release from his next project Reminisce. KD
