As is most often the case, it's taken me a while to sit down and listen to the EP. Whereas some EPs and albums need played over and over again to appreciate, the Cherry Bomb EP sucks you in right from the off. Opening track Black Wave is a punchy, garage-pop gem with more hooks than a disabled pirates convention, and a subtle, but very effective synth backing. Next up is the brilliant Beach Boys-esque Broken Up with its contrasting, deep, strained vocals and a guitar solo that Chuck Berry would be proud of. Cherry Bomb itself has a wee bit of T-Rex's glam in there while still staying true to their garage billing. Last up, Go Give Yer Love Away, the 'stripped-back' one on the EP with jangling guitars, tambourines and handclaps, highlights the real sense of enjoyment and fun which shines through from the start to the end of this cracking wee EP!
