We're Not Getting Through


Record45 rpm 7" single (Twang! Records)




"We're Not Getting Through" literally explodes with harmonic pop hooks driven by ringing guitars, ferocious drumming and melodic bass playing. The flip side is the Grip Weeds' notorious version of the Move classic "I Can Hear the Grass Grow", which is not available anywhere else. This is a limited-edition pressing from Twang! Records in Germany, and will soon be collectible. Full color cover.

"Approaching true genius with each new release, New Jersey's favorite power-popsters back a definitive cover of the classic Move .tune with an insta-classic of their own that blends 1996 with 1965 while it combines elements of The Who, Big Star, the Del-Vettes and The American Breed with the Gin Blossoms. The Posies wish they sounded half as convincing.""...this band deserves a heap of credit. "We're Not Getting Through" is a perfect example of how, in the right hands, such good work can and does ring as true to 1996 as it does to '66, with vocal and instrumental ability spot-on and production decidedly more power than pop"
