For about a decade now, Dirtbombs frontman Mick Collins has threatened that the band's next release would be their "bubblegum album." Well, at long last, here is Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey. It's understandable to assume that a bubblegum record by The Dirtbombs would be cover versions by groups like the 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Ohio Express and The Archies. After all, the band already has two albums of cover songs under their belt which salute specific genres. That is not the case in this instance. Mick Collins wrote ten new tracks which pay homage to the sound and style originally popularized in the late '60s / early '70s by producers / exploiters like Kasenetz-Katz and Don Kirschner. While the usual Dirtbombs' double-drums, fuzzy guitars and soulful swagger are present, Ooey Gooey is sugary, sunshiny pop rock that recalls Josie & the Pussycats, the Banana Splits and Lancelot Link & the Evolution Revolution, to name but three. It's all sing-along choruses, childlike themes and a co

It's all sing-along choruses, childlike themes and a contrived innocence— not the kind of record one would've predicted from a guy who once fronted The Gories.
