Cool powerpop of this Laguna Beach/CA based band. "California girls" is a cover of a Beach Boys song while the b side is a self penned number. Released on their own "Ready go records". I haven't found more informations. Year of release is unclear. A good one!

Nice New Wave with a male (on side a) and a female (on side b) lead singer. It seems that was their lone output on their own label based in Cleveland. A fine one!
