“Gary Ritchie - Hum, Sing...Repeat! (CD, Fancy Two/Tone Records). Pure pop in the purest sense of the word. Before we even started reading the liner notes on the cover we were thinking that this guy reminded us a great deal of Nick Lowe...who is mentioned as an influence along with a host of other classic pop artists including The Who, The Kinks, Badfinger, and even Gary Lewis (!). Ritchie writes instantly familiar sounding guitar-driven pop music that should please just about anyone who digs the classic stuff. Plenty of cool rhythms, groovy guitars, and harmony vocals create a nice smooth spin from start to finish. Gary has the good sense not to overproduce his tunes...allowing the listener to concentrate on the main ingredients (vocal melodies and lyrics). There's a lot to take in here...eighteen groovy tracks, all of which are a pure feelgood experience. Our favorite cuts include "At The Party," "Cold Lies," "Girl Like You," and "Queen of the Party."”

Q: Hey Gary, This is Eric King (Jeff's stepson). How are you doing? I was checking some Loose Lips video's online and it was clear that you were the person that made it all happen. Eric King :)
A: Thanks Eric. Yes, I am the culprit. Folks have been wanting to see and hear some of the old stuff. Rock on!! Things have been going well. Just got back from Chicago. Jeff and I are well on our way to finishing my latest electronic noise. Gary
