ARC031: Findo Gask - Va, Va, Va
1. Va, Va, Va
2. Wrapped In Plastic
Va-Va-Va is a little pop storm, a giddy avalanche that like, say, a classic early Associates single, fizzes with melody and its own, strange internal logic. You'll hear the band's love of the Cocteau Twins, and the Beach Boys in the gorgeous, ethereal harmonies of these two songs - particularly b-side Wrapped In Plastic - but also their dancefloor savvy.

Remember when you first saw Boy George or Bowie as Ziggy on Top of the Pops and you couldn't decide if it was a boy or a girl? Didn't know how or indeed whether to respond? Hard-on or moisture? It's not easy being a punter. You might get a bit of that when you hear Gerard Black of Findo Gask, a band named after an old Jacobean town southwest of Perth in Scotland.
