Woofing Cookies have largely been limited to Ebay auctions. That being said, there's minimal info to be had on them, though a fan-based Myspace page has a scan of their biography taken from a press kit of some sort. "In the City" isn't the Jam classic, or even the Eagles tune of the same name. Instead, it's a W/C original that stands at the nexus of power pop, garage, and warm, raw indie rock. The flipside to this Peter Buck-produced wax, "VB Side," offers some mild dynamic tangents, but strikes me as a bit underwritten by comparison. I'm also tacking on an additional cut, "Such a Mistake," from a preceding single. Rough-hewn, strummy goodness abounds. The Cookies also have a full length to their credit that I hope to get my mitts on soon.
