ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
L.A. post-garage collective’s third album is
both accessible and adventurous.
On its third album Wannabee Nobody, L.A. music collective Mod
Hippie – spearheaded by singer/songwriter Doug McGuire and
including various X, Beach Boys and Standells alumni,
streamlines its thunderous garage, psychedelic and post-punk
influenced power pop into something both more accessible and
experimental than its first two albums, Tomorrow Then (2015)
and Big Wow (2017).
Featuring two six-minute suites (including the epic opening track
“Saturday Show”) and a spacey, synthed-out cover of the
Replacements’ “Johnny’s Gonna Die,” Wannabe Nobody
consolidates Mod Hippie’s trademark sprawling guitar textures
and wide soundscapes into a concise, hook-driven but off-kilter
rock vision.
Look no further than the first single, “And Everyone The Fashion
(So Sorry)” which seamlessly blends punk, garage, power pop,
surf and Middle Eastern influences into a short, sharp rant that is
as dazzling as it is direct.
The epic garage sound the band perfected on its first two albums
is back on display on “Leave It All Behind,” while “Cricket LaRue”
and “Lux” slyly morph those influences into tributes to swamp
rock and The Cramps, respectively (Cramps producer Earle
Mankey mastered the record). The sad, yearning “You Know”
calls to mind some of Paul Westerberg’s closing-time balladry,
while the gorgeous, cryptic two-part “The Special Price Keepers”
starts out psychedelic and winds up in trippy Pink Floyd/
Lindsey Buckingham territory with its gossamer layered guitars.
