Melmacs- Record Store 7". At first listen I took Deutchlands's the Melmacs to be Germany’s answer to the Go-Go’s. For those not in the know the Go-Go’s did play fiercer punk rock in their early days and the Melmacs lead singer Bimmi's voice bears more than a slight resemblance to an early 80's youthful Belinda Carlisle. Although not an all-girl band, the Melmacs sound is a bit punkier than the Go-Go’s with a a sort of amped up bubble-gummey, punk rock sound with driving power-pop guitars and a speedier pace alongside a healthy dose of grit, attitude and tons of energy to accentuate Bimmi’s electric voice. The 7" includes 2 songs and comes with a full color, two sided printed insert as well. Fun listen. Import from Germany.
