The Hawaiians - Teenagers Love
"The boys simply did everything right. If this is not the
greatestteenager-bubblegum sound, I'll be damned and
I mean it. This demo is bound to become THE pop-punk
record of the
"17 tracks of super sunny Queers meet the Beach Boys
bubblegum punk by this young German band.
Superb sleeve artwork by Fritte!

"I first met them for (i think) 2 or 3 years ago, where
they played together with the Apers andthe Vaders on
a festival.I was fascinated of them, they wore
Hawaii shirts/Sunglasses andplayed the exact soundtrack
to it (what means: Poppy-Surf-Punk-RocknRoll). Then
I saw themwith the Groovie Ghoulies last year and with
the Queers this year, both were pretty good shows .
So I was looking forward to listen to this record and what
can I say? ItŽs a good Pop-Punk record,with some great
shaking ass songs. Buy this CD,turn on the heat, mix a
cocktail, wear yourswimming-shorts and do a pool-party
in your house."

"Sunny beach bubblegum pop punk from Westerkappeln
and therefore close to the Favorats,Backwood Creatures
etc. Queers meet Beach Boysmeet Groovie Ghoulies meet
Travoltas. Plus a nice chunk of 50's rock'n roll. Unfortunately
only CD, but
4-tone comic artwork by Fritte."
"Wow. Once in a while, you get your hands on a very
special record. And this one is one of them.
The coolest surprise since a very long time. The best
record i've heard in the last 3 years. Very Queers/
GroovieGhoulies but a bit more fifties. Imagine a l
lo-fi punk album from Weezer produced by Joe Meek.
Do The Waikiki and Love love love are incredible hit songs
and extremely original compositions. A masterpiece of
originality in a world where everything in the pop punk
world is either a copy of Joe King or Ben foster's work.
But Teenagers Love is not a copy of these. It's too bad
that they only have one album and it doesnt sound as
good as it should be, but i dont care. I want more.
This record made me want to do music again.
Yeah, it reminded me that that's what i wanna do,
and i want to give up everything to do music like that.
A record that gave me shivers when i was listening it,
a thing i had almost forgotten. This record made me
happy and proud to be alive for a moment. And god
know that's it's VERY hard to make Johnny Love happy."
