The Flim-Flams were way ahead of their time. By the time their debut EP was released in 1995, no other band even thought of incorporating Moog keyboards and quirky new wave influences. But here are Chicago's Flim-Flams, bouncing their way through six songs of off the wall robotic pop that's complete with dual female vocals -- one of which being Mrs. Joey Vindictive -- and offbeat lyrics such as "Creamy twinkie little star/ Juju beans and chocolate bars/ Hookie meanie Pokie me/ Yippie yippie Daddyyo-yo." Very fun and very '80s. This album should come with leg warmers and a booklet on how to peg your pants.
