THE BARRACUDAS (Redux)
Plus: BABY SHAKES and THE BARRERACUDAS
The Barracudas were a UK band formed in the late 1970s, notable for their 1980 hit single "Summer Fun" which reached number 37 in the UK singles chart. Originally perceived as a novelty surf act due to their early material, subsequent recordings showed them to be a fierce garage rock'n'roll band in the mold of the 13th Floor Elevators and The Seeds, with the pop sensibilities of the Sire-era Flamin Groovies, the Byrds, and Beau Brummels. The band also notably featured Chris Wilson of the aforementioned Flamin Groovies, and Australia's Jim Dickson (Passengers, New Christs, Radio Birdman).
Jeremy Gluck, lead singer and pop mastermind of The Barracudas, takes you back to the "other eighties," with an all-star ensemble of supreme young power-pop phenoms playing all your favorites from the first two classic Barracudas LPs!
