Barhop CDEP - The Del-Emmas

Label:Blue Chip Records
Released:1998
Tracks:Rocket Ship
Git That Man
Iíll Let You Hold My Hand
Cheetah Man
What A Way To Die


Rating: 3/5

The Del-Emmas are an all-girl garage band from Sydney who can actually play their instruments and who thankfully donít try and scream every note. Barhop, which is the bandís first release, contains 5 melodic 60ís styled garage tracks, including their covers of What A Way To Die and the Beatles rip-off Iíll Let You Hold My Hand. However, their originals are even better, especially Git That Man and Cheetah Man, which have an authentic garage sound thanks to the addition of some cheesy organ. Barhop is an impressive little record, which despite the basic production, has a likeable charm that is hard to resist.
