Given their moniker, not to mention the swirly flower-thingys adorning the sleeve, it would be hard not to get the impression that The Acid Drops weren't steeped in Nuggets-esque psychedelia. Granted that's largely the case, this British troupe were also attuned to what their Rickenbacker-friendly contemporaries were up to, particularly the Soup Dragons and Mighty Lemon Drops. "She Laughed Out Loud" sports no shortage of fuzzy, garage-induced moxie, but it's flip "Deep Sea Dream" would have been a shoo-in for the fabled C86 compilation (about to see reissue btw), had the Drops been invited two years prior. Capping things off is "Rush," a surfy but unremarkable instrumental.
A. She Laughed Out Loud
B1. Deep Sea Dream
Dogs - Missing on the Subway / Ain't Goin' Nowhere + Rubbish / Ain't Goin' Now Here (1981) - Catchy minimal synth from the British Isles. Sounding a bit like Daniel Miller's Silicon Teens (especially on the song Rubbish) but with better and origin...
