I'm sure these guys back in '64 never imagined that they'd become known across the entire world. Or that someone would make a documentary about them. But their current notoriety is well deserved.Read More

Okay, so this track isn't the "a-side" on this EP. The first song is "With a Girl Like You". On the other side are "Jingle Jangle" and "I Want You". But the caveman stomp of the latter track is already on my shelves of seven inch vinyl. And "Our Love Will Still Be There" is my reason for buying this French EP. One of my favourite bands ever, the Troggs are world famous for "Wild Thing", of course. But every one of their 45s is worth having, in my opinion. Even their 1970s ones, like "In The Summertime", in which Reg Presley's lascivious snarl is still fully present. On this track the fuzz guitar totally makes it for me. I can imagine all kinds of bands making soft, lovey-dovey, versions of "Our Love Will Still Be There". But the Troggs give me what I want - full on sixties punk attitude on a love song. What can be better?
