Mick Collins, the Dirtbombs’ frontman has been threatening that their next album would be a bubblegum pop-inspired album over the past decade, and in some way fans and critics have treated it as a bit of a joke, as the band has released a couple of albums of (mostly) originals, a compilation of singles, and an album of Detroit (the band’s hometown) techno covers. Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey is the long-threanted and long-awaited bubblegum-pop inspired album of original songs, which In the Red Records will release on September 17th. And there are a few things about really well done bubbleum pop  – the songs are well written and are infectiously catchy. "Crazy for You,“ is the Dr. Seuss-sounding title album’s first single, and not only is it sugary sweet, but it’s a catchy earworm of a song.
