If the year was 1968, Buddah records would have snatched the Rantouls up, released tons of #1 hit singles, and sent Gavin, Lauren and Will around the world charming pre-pubescent teenies wherever they went. Lucky for us, its 40 years later so you can have a pimple-free complexion and also admit that you love great pop songs.

The Rantouls first full length album.
The Vinyl LP includes a download card for those MP3 things for all the tracks. This is just to piss off Gavin.
Rantouls fan Rev. Nørb and his girlfriend say it best: It's STUPENDOUS! STUPENDOUS I SAY! I played the a-side, then the b-side, then the a-side, then the b-side, and it made my girlfriend yell "I DIDN'T LIKE THAT SONG VERY MUCH WHEN IT WAS CALLED 'LITTLE GREEN HAT,' AND I LIKED IT EVEN LESS THE SECOND TIME WHEN IT WAS CALLED 'A LITTLE BIT OF THAT!'" Yes, its that good.
Lots of great bands for your aural pleasure. Johnny and the Limelites, Nobunny, The Yolks, Hunx and His Punx, The Rantouls, Sexcapades, Puddin Pops, Coconut Coolouts, Personal & The Pizzas, Slippery Slopes, Garbos Daughter, Sweet Sixteens, and Brians Dirty Business.
Have you ever bought a bubblegum 45, played the A side to hear your newest favorite song, then flipped it over to the B side to hear the worst song ever? The Rantouls broke that bubblegum mold by giving not just one or two great tunes - but four great songs on 7 tiny inches of vinyl! Each track is sweeter and gooier than the one right before.
The vinyl purchase includes a download coupon for MP3s of all the songs, plus two bonus tracks by Rantouls forebearer The Wolf Riders.
