Album review: Dananananaykroyd: Hey Everyone!

DANA NA NA NA YKR OYD: HEY EVERYONE! BEST BEFORE, £5.86 * * *

AS A public service, Glaswegian six-piece Dananananaykroyd begin their debut album by chanting their unwieldy, stuttering moniker in an instructional manner, so that everyone is comfortable and ready to join their "fight pop" party.

Hey Everyone! is one of those albums which sounds like it was a blast to make. Happily, it's also pretty enjoyable to listen to – provided that you like hell-for-leather angular punk riffing whose bark is worse than its bite.

The entire album comes over like a big, imposing dog which turns out to be a dumb, cuddly mutt. Highlights include Black Wax, which is almost bubblegum pop by their standards, and the line "we'll turn your hissy fits into sissy hits" from 1993.
