ROB SEZ: For those who don't know the music of Lolas, it belongs at the wonderful intersection of heavy guitars and hummable pop. Think of Lolas as the musical love child of the Ramones and the Monkees. This probably explains why, even though they're from Birmingham, Alabama, Lolas have toured Japan at least twice, including last year. Lolas have the discerningly good taste to cover Chris Stamey's power pop chestnut "The Summer Sun" (joining the ranks of Alex Chilton, Yo La Tengo and others). TREMENDOUS THANKS to HAWKMASARU1 for recording and sharing.

  2. Lolas are great. I first found out about them thanks to the great Not Lame Records catalog and website.

    And, hey, when I go to write this comment I find even more.

    Thank you. Great, great site.

    And thanks to your music friends who shared the "tapes".
