The original GIZMOS release their first new EP since 1978, and the first Gulcher vinyl release since 1981. The new EP was recorded in July at Magnetic South in the Gizmos' original home base of Bloomington, Indiana. KENNE HIGHLAND, EDDIE FLOWERS, TED NIEMIEC, and RICH COFFEE were joined by new members CRAIG BELL (ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS), KELSEY SIMPSON and SAM MURPHY. Kenne and Eddie have two new originals: "Red-Headed Stepchild" and "Disaster In Dayton." They both have a kinda Stones/Dolls vibe, with "Stepchild" also steeped in Detroit aggression. "Disaster In Dayton" adds some Skynyrd/Faces honky tonk to a bit of Bowie/Ronson riffage, and tells a true-life story in the Gizmos tradition. Ted brings two new slices of Giz-pop. "Around" has a kinda folk-rock/60s vibe, but the band is rockin' hard. "Open" leans towards a more psych vibe, with Ted's vocal adding a bit of Bauhaus to the mix and the guitars soundin' like a very concise 1967 Quicksilver Messenger Service. The title track, "21st Century Gizmos Fans," comes from Rich Coffee, with Eddie and Ted each adding a verse as well. It has a kinda wham-bam-glam sound, and the lyrics are in the self-referential Gizmos mode. There's some Chuck Berry in there too. Five new songs! Four original Gizmos! Three new Gizmos! Wacky cover art! Old-fashioned vinyl! New-fangled hype! Rock on!
