News – That Girl/I’m So Confused 7″

Overshadowed by their first 7″ Chop Chop Chop/Dirty Lies. But in my opinion this is way better! The third and I believe the last release from Australia’s the News. That Girl is a speedy tastefully arranged powerpunk cracker complete with piano and synthesizer. Splendid ladies and gentlemen!! I’m So Confused is a lovely complement. A soft, melancholy powerpopish “wrestling hit”(brottarhit in Swedish). Oh yeah baby this is hard to beat.

    This is really bad. Can you post the Meat Puppets one again? :)

  2. Robert says:

    3rd single? What happened to their 2nd? Good post by the way.

  3. Jay, I think we will drift apart more and more. You have to broaden your taste :).

  4. Martin says:

    Seriöst Peter, brottar hit? Menar du inte brottarhit? Skandinaviska är väl inte språket med de mest frekventa särskrivningarna eller?
    Och det var fan vad Jay Thurston har blivit negativ.

    Jodå det kommer att bli fl er och fl er sär skriv ningar fram över. Detta är bara början. Snart har anglofieringen tagit över tot alt. Ska bli kul att se Jays reaktion när han läser något om honom som han inte förstår ha ha.

  6. Martin says:

    Jodå, det var där för jag pass ade på att skri va ut hela hans namn i stället för bara för namnet, anglo fier ingen kan ju få ho nom att tro att Jay är ett skandi naviskt o r d .

  7. Jay Thurston says:

    I will try to listen to this again in a few days. They just a little wimpy for me.

  8. Jay Thurston says:

    Hey! I am learning Swedish…so you better behave. Hahaha

  9. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Ha ha we’re not talking shit about you Jay. Try google!

  10. Martin says:

    Don’t believe what Peter says Jay, he was back stabbing you while I just said that you probably have beautiful hair that smells like roses.

  11. I always pictured Jay bald and skinny.

  12. Pawel says:

    too soft but ok
    I like aussie 70/80ties music

  13. Paul Conroy says:

    Another great 7″ rip!
    Aussie punk releases were slim pickings back then. I remember wagging school the day Missing Link (the shop) were filling the shelves with this release.
