Going Steady With Peggy Moffitt
FORMAT: 10" vinyl (pink, heart-shaped) SOLD OUT

"Dedicated to: Peggy & Rudi, BB & Serge, Nancy & Lee, Bonnie & Clyde, Dolly & Porter, Mickey & James, Cher & Sonny."

The glam-pop duo Giddle & Boyd are none other than Giddle Partridge of The Partridge Family Temple and Boyd Rice of the seminal noise outfit NON. Drawing from a variety of influences including glam rock, 1960s French pop, spy film soundtracks, psychedelic music and electro-pop, Going Steady With Peggy Moffitt is Giddle & Boyd's first and only official release. Comprised of six groovy glam-pop tracks (two featuring Brian M. Clark on guitar and organ) and produced by Absinthe Studio's Bob Ferbrache; this 33rpm EP is pressed on pink, heart-shaped vinyl, and limited to an edition of 1,000 hand-numbered copies.

NOTE: The group Giddle & Boyd was dissolved in 2010, at which time all digital distribution rights for songs featuring either Boyd Rice or Giddle Partridge reverted to each of them respectively (enquiries related to use, sale, and digital distribution of those tracks should be made to the artists directly). Discriminate Audio retains all rights to tracks written and performed by Brian M. Clark.

"Giddle and Boyd appear to be taking their cues from sixties French Pop, psychedelic and punk electro. That's certainly what comprises Going Steady With Peggy Moffitt, the first fruits of this collaboration which leans heavily on the work of Brigitte Bardot. Two songs are featured on the six track EP. Giddle lends her sultry voice to 'Contact', a groovy keyboard lead number... Boyd and Giddle take the place of Serge Gainsbourg and Bardot for 'Bonnie and Clyde' in an almost carbon copy of the original this time sung in English. Giddle and Boyd are way more glam than Spell, it's all psychedelic designs and day-glo colours. And listening to GoGo Giddle on 'Bubble Gum New Forever' as she refers to herself as "an amusement park" before going on to describe her ample physical charms to the melody of the Shangri Las' 'He Cried' you realise that GoGo Giddle is more than willing to go all the way. Elsewhere there's the rock'n'roll electro throb of Suicide's 'Rocket USA' and the instrumental garage-rock of 'Sunset Strip SS' and the title track - featuring Brian M. Clark... Boyd Rice has always displayed an immaculate taste in music, and this latest collaboration with Giddle Partidge, a member of the Partridge Family Temple, sure looks set to be a lot of fun. And given the current state of events with Brigitte Bardot the irony of Boyd singing songs of the former sex-kitten made me laugh anyway."
