Various Artists • Let's Bubblegum The Punk​!​ (Volume 1)

– Compilation de groupes powerpop américains (1972-1983).
Les connaisseurs disent tous à peu près la même chose, à savoir que la power pop nord-américaine de la fin des seventies reste l’un des secrets les mieux gardés de ce côté-ci de l’Atlantique. Ce LP inaugure une série de compilations, qui est avant tout une tentative de donner à tous ces groupes, en gros actifs entre 1975 et 1985, une droit a posteriori à leur époque. Et peut-être même donner  une petite place dans le panthéon du rock’n’roll à cette génération de musiciens qui ont essayé d’injecter dans le punk-rock les ingrédients éternels du rock’n’roll avec des doses égales d’optimisme, de fun, de romantisme, et, surtout, de mélodies.

– Compilation of US Powerpop bands (1972-1983).
Those in the know all say much the same thing, that vintage North-American power pop is still one of the best-kept secrets on this side of the Atlantic. This LP inaugurates a series of compilations, which is, above all, a posthumous attempt to give all these bands, active between 1975 and 1985, some a posteriori exposure to the general public (hey, it’s a figure of speech, right?) and maybe even a small place in the rock’n’roll pantheon. So, let us take this opportunity to introduce to you some bands of the family: The HEATERS/HEATS (Seattle, WA), The JACKS (Tulsa, OK), The LAUGHING DOGS (New York, NY), Glenn MILLER & The IMPOSSIBLES (New York, NY), The QUICK (Los Angeles, CA), The ROCKIN’ BRICKS (New Brunswick, NJ), The SINGLES (San Jose, CA) and The TREND (Columbia, MO). These bands encountered varying degrees of fortune, particularly in their home cities. For a moment, to those who loved that power pop sound, these bands seemed to be the best in the world. Even if it’s not true, it’s this illusion that inspired this first volume: the illusion that everything was still possible, the dream of eternal youth revisited by exuberant American teenagers and would-be teenagers, who had languished in the shadows for many decades.

Ranked number 9 in the 2021 David Bash’s Top 30 Compilations for Various Artists.

“Top notch comp that hasn’t much left the player those days. There’s comps and there’s comps. The former are just a collection of tracks, when the later display something more than the simple addition of the tracks: a ‘soul’. This one belongs to the later, hope vol. 2 shows up soon.” (Sylvain Delauzann, Switzerland)
