You will need to get past the name, but Thee Goochi Boiz are alright. Standard garage turkey songs with a few K Records-style softer moments (“Why You Gotta Be Mean to Me”), which ups their charm quotient considerably. It’s not full twee, but there’s a suggestion of other emotions besides “party time.” Maybe because it’s on Windian, I trust it more? Fast Food for the Teenage Soul (the more recent of the two cassettes re-issued on this LP) is stronger, though Oops is pleasantly high school in a lunch table with friends way. It’s ridiculous, but ridiculous is a good thing to be, mostly.
