A HUGE batch of Helen Love singles (rips n' scans) were donated by the amazing Bristolboy from the world-rocking blog, My Life's A Jigsaw.
Helen Love's fusion of bubblegum, punk, disco with the whole c86 fast, cute n' cheap aesthetic is by turns obsessive, twee and utterly wonderful. Her love of the Ramones (and Joey in particular) comes across in her brash tempos and her sticky chorsues but the funhouse sound she creates is strictly one-of-a-kind.
This single, "Joey Ramoney" b/w/ "Your Biggest Fan", is one of Love's earliest releases and establishes the mad depths of her fandom (her lyrics read like letters to Creem Magazine circa 1979) but also demonstrates her capacity for breeding more virulent earworms than Khan Noonien Singh.
Wahddya make of Ms. Love?
