For about a decade now, Dirtbombs frontman Mick Collins has
threatened that the band's next release would be their
"bubblegum album." After a couple of records of mostly
originals, a compilation of singles and an album of Detroit
techno covers, one might have suspected that the concept either
fell by the wayside or was a farce to begin with. Well, at long
last, here is 'Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey'. It's understandable
to assume that a bubblegum record by The Dirtbombs would be
cover versions by groups like the 1910 Fruitgum Company, The
Ohio Express and The Archies. After all, the band already has two albums of cover songs under their belt which salute
specific genres. That is not the case in this instance. Mick
Collins wrote ten new tracks which pay homage to the sound and
style originally popularized in the late '60s/early '70s by
producers/exploiters like Kasenetz-Katz and Don Kirschner.
While the usual Dirtbombs double-drums, fuzzy guitars and
soulful swagger are present, 'Ooey Gooey...' is sugary,
sunshiny pop rock that recalls Josie & The Pussycats, the
Banana Splits and Lancelot Link & The Evolution Revolution, to
name but three. It's all sing-along choruses, childlike themes and a contrived innocence. This definitely is not the kind of
record one would've predicted from a guy who once fronted The
Gories. The original bubblegum music was a cash-in produced on
an assembly-line using studio musicians and hired songwriters,
who dashed out the stuff as quickly as possible and most likely
forgot about it even quicker. While The Dirtbombs adhere to
some of this original approach by using a list of guest
musicians so long there wasn't room to credit them on the album
cover, 'Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey' is actually a carefully
crafted work almost two years in the making.

Also available: OOEY GOOEY CHEWY KA-BLOOEY! (CD).
