PUMPHOUSE GANG: Self-titled: LP

The Sing Sing label seems to be taking up where Radio Heartbeat left off in the power pop reissue department. The unfortunately-named Pumphouse Gang played punk-inflected rock’n’roll and pop in the U.K. in the mid-’70s. I can’t help but chuckle looking at the guys in the band and thinking about them singing songs about teenagers. All kidding aside, a quality reissue of a lost power pop gem. Heavy stock glossy cover and informative, if brief, liner notes. For fans of The Beat, The Boys and RadioCity.
