Album of the Week: Stream the Dirtbombs’ Giddy Bubblegum-Pop Experiment ‘Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey’ | SPIN | SPIN Mix | Premieres

A friend of mine called me up one day out of the blue and said, “If you ever do the bubblegum record, I have a title for you: ‘Hot Sour Salty Sweet.'” And I said, “Yes, it’s genius.” I wrote it down and promptly forgot about it for four years. When I found it in my notes, right away it started coming to me, right there. Musically, that song and a couple of other tracks are specific tributes to Kasenetz and Katz, the guys who did the Lemon Pipers and all those bands that we commonly associate with bubblegum.
