The Sweet Sounds Of The Sugar Stems

Starring Betsy and Stephanie ex of The Flips and two blokes, The Sugar Stems are armed to the teeth with simple pop hooks which they dispatch fresh and direct. They've learned their energetic trade from the best that the classics of bubblegum, glam rock, powerpop and girl group can offer.


Their album Sweet Sounds Of could show off their entire range on side one with time to spare, but over the fourteen songs they kick up a riot of colourful fun with such enthusiasm that you may just as well surrender to its basic and very effective charms.

super catchy! I dig this way more than I (probably) should. You're right, the enthusiasm is totally catching.

Every time I listen to this record I think of the Bangles.
