'Hey Mr Beatmaker' is the final release from San Francisco, CA's, The Bang Girl Group Revue, and this time around they were joined by none other than Joel Gion (Brian Jonestown Massacre) on tambourine! 'Hey Mr Beatmaker' finds the group going out in full blown psychedelic soul mode; a stomping kaleidoscope of groove, wailing vocals, fuzz guitar, and swirling organ.
The b-side ('Drink In Hand' ) is taken from The Bang's LP and was chosen at the request of several DJ's who demanded that track on 7" wax.
The 45 RPM vinyl single is extremely limited.
Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck) is the final & third of 3 singles from the forthcoming album “Don’t Get Lost” released in February 2017.

“Geldenes Herz Menz” features Pete Fraser (The Pogues, New Young Pony Club) on saxophone, both Dan Allaire (drums) & Ricky Maymi (guitar) from the Brian Jonestown Massacre play on both tracks.
