With this single Tokyo's Gorilla have so faithfully reproduced the sound of late seventies/early eighties US powerpop that -- if it wasn't for the slightly accented vocals -- it could easily pass for an recently unearthed Bomp! warehouse find. "Mary Anne" is such a great song that if it had of been on comps like Shake Some Action or Yellow Pills it would have stood out as one of the better tracks. Powerpop gets no better than this folks. On the flip side, "Forever" is an ultra-infectious anthem that will be stuck in your head for days. This single is an absolute must for any powerpop fan, or anyone who appreciates great songwriting. Although this is a 300 copy pressing, 100 of those copies sold out during Gorilla's recent nationwide Japanese tour, which means we're left with just 200 copies for sale. Act quick folks!!!!
