First heard at the excellent Litte Hits: www.littlehits.com. Awesome, killer arrrrrgggghhh it’s powerpop till you bleed. Need I say more? No! Thank you! Now over to Jon at Little Hits:”You know how so many punk and power pop records of the era have “ironic” lyrics about taking you out to the drive-in or meeting your parents, or whatever? This one evokes an innocence that seems completely real, an un-selfconsciousness that not even the fake British accents can negate.”

You’re right. This IS powerpop until you bleed.

Make’s me feel like a senior in high school again!There is a 5 song E.P. out there too Folks.Smart Remarks”Seriously Speaking” recorded in 1985.
Hey Todd. I ran across this single while looking through the KBD archives. I loved “Mary’s Got Her Eye On Me” and listened to the others you had linked on Smart Remarks’ MySpace. I liked most of it and was surprised to hear a Dirty Looks cover. Any chance of a CD release of this stuff? I’d buy it
This song makes me feel 14 again.. sigh.
Prone to vulgarity, I heard this song, held my wife’s hand and danced politely in our living room. Thanks.
