SadGirl: Breakfast For 2
On their new 7" for Suicide Squeeze Records, SadGirl not only harnesses a golden oldies sound with "Breakfast for 2", they touch upon its traditions as well. "It's a follow up to one of the first tracks I wrote for the project, 'Breakfast Is Over'. It's meant to be a sequel in line with rock n' roll and oldies tunes like 'It's My Party' and 'Judy's Turn To Cry', or 'Johnny B. Goode' and 'Bye Bye Johnny'," says guitarist/vocalist Misha Lindes. The flipside features a cover of the surf classic "Jack the Ripper" by Link Wray. "I’m a big fan," says Lindes, "but I’m also a huge fan of the late Israeli neo-rockabilly / surf guitarist Charlie Megira, who passed away in November 2016, and Charlie has an amazing version of 'Jack the Ripper'," says Lindes. "So our version is really an homage to Charlie as much as it is to Link Wray."
