Ludicrously named and delightfully retro, Norway’s Death By Unga Bunga take thirty years of guitar pop and cram them into half an hour of familiar sounding rock ‘n’ roll that lifts ideas from The Tornadoes to Blondie and from The Doors to The Ramones, with elements of hair metal guitar solos and prog references thrown in for good measure.

It sounds like it should be horrible but it really isn’t because it oozes so much fun that it doesn’t have time to get annoying, with enough big hooky choruses to get stuck in your head and quite possibly stay there.
