Hoodoo Gurus - Stoneage Romeos
There were only quite a few songs I like upon hearing them the first time - Mommy's Little Monster, The Legend of Pat Brown, Thirteen, Protest & Survive, Hell's Around the Next Corner, Revenge. Though most songs on my list are either punk or hardcore except the Big Star song, there's another one that I liked when I first heard it - My Girl by Hoodoo Gurus. Hoodoo Gurus is an Australian power pop band and Stoneage Romeos was their debut album & it includes the song My Girl. The said song was played several times in a local radio station WXB 102.7 during the 80's. And I was so impressed by the group's pop hooks that I really got to have the album, which I did. I wasn't disappointed with the album either, which is a mix gargage rock, rockabilly, British Invasion and full-on rock n' roll. If you like good music, you shouldn't miss this one.
