Zips –You’re So Good To Me


Zips –You’re So Good To Me/ Gonna Leave The Door Wide Open –Yum Yum Records 17001 (1974 Ger)

This is Pip Whitcher and Roger Lomas (Sorrows/The Eggy/ Renegade) with Adrian Baker covering the Beach Boys’ track in a more distinctive manner than the versions by Johnnie Ricco or Design released around the same time. The Adrian Baker Beach Boys fxation and Teen angle is nicely counter-Balanced by the ballsy guitars and thudding beat. Zips also released a so-so version of Bye Bye Love on RAK with a solid rocker called Evil Hearted Woman on the B side…With the weather turning somewhat for the better expect some more Surf/Glam crossovers soon…
