THE GIRLS - 'Chico's Girl'/'Dumb Song' (Capitol 5675) 1965
It's time for some girl garage action and none better than East Los Angeles combo The Girls who were teenage sisters 'discovered' by Capitol Records and sponsored by Fender guitars.
They caused quite a stir in and around Hollywood with their tuff rock sound and played several high profile birthday gigs for 'A' list celebs. The right contacts also enabled them to appear on TV Shows Hullabaloo and Hollywood A Go Go but sadly no tapes of these performances have surfaced on You Tube yet.
'Chico's Girl' has got a full production, it could be said that it's a garage 'wall of sound'. The subtle use of fuzz is a great touch. The song was written by New York songwriting couple Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
