Man, what a time can be had on hot summer nights, everybody coming and going from every which way, north, south, east, west, don’t matter, their jamming their foot down on old rubber, blasting to get some place cool and wet, don’t matter if it’s four, eight, six, flat, slant, inline, it’s gassed and ready to run. Hoodlums and chicks, they dig it like that, fast and furious waiting on that flag to drop and rubber to burn, chilling and grooving to finger snapping sounds that are out of this world. Daddy-O it don’t get no better than that.

Anyway that's what it was like for me way back when. These days I don't know but these young Jersey kids The Brigantines bring back a flood of youthful memories for me, with something that sounds like Jan & Dean, Duane Eddy and some Philly Do-Wop shaken not stirred with some punk pop. Turn up the transistor moondoggie!
