Imagine a place where HUMAN LEAGUE go to meet LUSH but on the way they stumble on Sarah Records' Heavenly and all together they finally meet Alan Vega and Suicide. Confused? That's the point. Because Girl One and the Grease Guns sound determined to merge electro pop and shoegaze in one concrete genre where do-it-yourself ethics and synth studio technology are the kings without even thinking to weigh their efforts to the one end of the balance or the other. Enigmatic and mysterious with a female, familiar but strange as well, lead vocalist, the four members of the group have quite elaborate names: Sissy Space Echo (The Girl One), Warren Betamax, Charles Bronson Burner and Bruce LeeFax (The Grease Guns). To add more confusion to this winning hybrid, Girl One and the Grease Guns have... already broken up. No one knows who they are, no photographs ever printed, no live concerts played, no interviews published… Girl One and the Grease Guns are a real mystery and no one knows if they'll ever decide to record some more sides. From April 2013 up to June 2015 they have released six singles and one ep on one of the most sophisticated indie labels of the U.K., Squirrel Records. All their released material is now finally included in this album, a delightful indie gem destined to fly away over bedrooms of kids with anorak coats and minimal synth pop fans that can tell the difference between Cabaret Voltaire and Chromatics.
