Glasgow’s Bubblegum Lemonade have been the source of my aural pleasure lately. Named for Mama Cass Elliot’s (of Mamas & The Papas) 1969 solo album “Bubble Gum, Lemonade And…Something for Mama, Bubblegum Lemonade’s 1960’s inspired jangly melodic indie-pop brings to mind The Byrds, Jesus & Mary Chain, and The Ohio Express. Essentially the work of one man, Laz, and his 12 string Rickenbacker guitar, his debut album Doubleplusgood was released last month on Matinee Records. It’s yummy yummy yummy. And when Laz isn’t busy with the Lemonade, he’s making noisier pop with his other band Strawberry Whiplash fronted by a girl singer named Sandra.
