The 5,6,7,8's - Woo Hoo

Woo Hoo Woo-hoo-hoo. You must have heard this by now. If you missed it on the Kill Bill 1 soundtrack then it's since popped up in a Carling ad and someone, somewhere has decided it would make an excellent single. How right they are. It's fluffy, irritating, very catchy and mildly enjoyable for the first three or four listens. After that, however, you'd probably be grateful never to hear it again. It's plain old rockabilly with a simple bass scale and the occasional drum fill - and of course, Woo-Hoo repeated ad nauseum. It's less than two minutes long as well, so doesn't outstay it's welcome - though by the end of the summer it might well be banished back to Japan as it's certain to get to number one and irritate the hell out of us.

Far better is the B-side, Guitar Date which is a far better representation of what the band is like. It is rockabilly, of course, with no hint of any other influence and some very nice guitar picking. If you like the sound of the band, though, you'd be far better off getting the compilation, which we've reviewed here as it features a whopping 27 tracks and lasts significantly longer than the four and a half minute cd single you get here.
