£4.99

Get your fuzzy pop thrills with the wonderful punk rock melodies of Milky Wimpshake's 'Lovers, Not Fighters'. It contains 14 tracks of pop, punk, romance and (personal) politics and includes the classic No. 1 smash hit single (yeah. in my world, ok?) 'Dialling Tone', cover versions of Spraydog's 'Lemonade' and old folkie Phil Och's 'Do what I have to do', as well as their coruscating indictment of Jack Straw's tenure at the home office, 'Jack Ass'.

The genius of Wimpshake in that they make you do things you wouldn't normally do, like jumping up and down grinning from ear-to-ear while listening to a lyric about Noam Chomsky. As the fanzine 'In Love With These Times' wrote, 'There's really no need for the Buzzcocks to reform while we have Milky Wimpshake'. Yay!

Former Uberlord of the Slampt record label, pete dale’s punkpop three piece deliver an album full of fuzzy pop tunes, bus-stop romance and political awareness. “crammed with the pure idiot joy of never selling out or growing up. for their vision of a socialist indie-pop utopia where everyone is free to staple their fanzines in peace, we salute them” (nme), “if you like the Buzzcocks, the brilliant corners or have a secret fond place in your heart for the pooh sticks 'on tape', you'll probably love this record,” (jyoti mishra)
