HELGAS, THE: Why You Wanna: 7”

Jan 29, 2009

After several listens, The Helgas slowly grew on me like blue fungal mold on a loaf of bread. At first, I honestly didn’t know what to think of their distinctly unique musical quirkiness, but then I decided that they sound vaguely similar to the Ramones (rhythmically), Buzzcocks (vocals and catchy poppy edge), and even Buddy Holly to a certain degree. Yeh, I’ll definitely give this lively lil’ 7-incher several more spins on the ol’ turntable during the next few days, ‘cause it makes me feel all giddy and tingly inside. Aw, shucks!
