Beachniks are a hobby band and their hobbies are bubblegum pop, drunken couldn’t-care-less guitar riffs and wanting to sound like the first Vaselines ep. They – and they are members of Crystal Stilts and German Measles – aren’t trying too hard and get away with it on panache, cheap thrills and goofiness.

I’ve had this four-track 7” for a week and played it a bunch of times. I may never play it again. It was fun while it lasted and I ain’t complaining. It’s ditzy, throwaway, sloppy pop music that’ll keep you entertained for minutes. And that’s enough until the next bright thing turns up.
