That a significant part of the current American underground scene revolves around a new garage rock explosion is obvious for anyone to see and hear. In the midst of this panorama of celebration, and renovation of some of the primary forms and attitudes of garage and punk rock, the name Dum Dum Girls is frequently up there with the most praised. Due to a family tragedy, Dee Dee Gartrell and his Dum Dum Girls were forced to cancel part of their tour. The band is planning to resume it, though, with new dates scheduled for February, complemented with the release of new songs to keep the fans’ attention fixed. On 1st March, Sub Pop will release “He Gets Me High”, a 4-track EP—included on which will be a cover of “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths—Dee Dee has recorded with the help of veterans Richard Gottehrer and Sune Rose Wagner from The Raveonettes. Dum Dum Girl fans should stay alert for their new EP, featuring “Substance”, one of the best moments in “Broken Dreams Club”.
