Dum Dum Girls "I Will Be" LP (2010)

Regular price $17.00 $0.00 Unit price per

Details: Dum Dum Girls debut album, "I Will Be" was an exploration into a new persona and a kind of fuzzed-out gothic garage similar to bands like The Raveonettes, or Glasvegas, for lead singer Dee Dee who had previously recorded as Kristen Gundred in rock trio Grand Ole Party (and later went on to create Kristin Kontrol). The album and its previous singles and EPs caught the attention of various music outlets with the news of its release growing like wildfire. Note: This is a first pressing with the black and muted grey and beige sleeve that differs from the color sleeve palette on the second issue of the album. Later reissued on Sub Pop.

Description: "I Will Be is the debut full-length by the Dum Dum Girls. Produced by Dee Dee and Richard Gottehrer (Strangeloves, Voidoids, Blondie, The Go-Gos, and, more recently, The Raveonettes), I Will Be is neither lo-fi nor too polished. Just under thirty minutes with eleven songs, it’s a short tribute to love, fun, and the classic pop form of the ’60s girl groups and early punk rockers."
