This cross-continental 7" finds pop behemoth Gary Pig Gold fronting a pair of the finest combos on the underground scene, one on either American coast. The A-side captures the combined superpowers of Gary and The Masticators on Golds neo-hodad classic, "Permanent Vacation", a new "Summertime Blues" that has sand in its shoes and a tube-riding surfers daydreaming disposition. Jan & Dean harmonies and flawless bubblegum vocals lap up against a sunny Californian mood before the tune drifts out to sea and fades over the horizon in perfect "Twist & Shout" mode. The flip side falls under the guise of Gary and The Grip Weeds and finds Gold tearning up with powerfully mood-popping fellow New Jerseysites, the mighty Greep Weeds, for a be-tartaned run through the Bay City Rollers "Rock And Roll Love Letter". Tube-sock cool with cascading "Cant Explain" harmonies, the song actually blows the original into oblivion. Perfect for rollerskating off into that eternal 70s Saturday night.
