Baby Champagne is the 3rd song from the Alternative Rock outfit Clean Dirty Clean’s debut album Resistor. You only have to listen to the Morgantown, West Virginia’s sound to taste their palpable enthusiasm for Rock, Indie, Britpop, Garage Rock & Punk. In fact, being across the pond, I’m pretty embarrassed that Clean Dirty Clean smashed the Britpop sound better than some of the original British bands from the 90’s. The relentless Janglepop guitar riffs would have even made Johnny Marr proud as guitarists Neal Humphries & Wes Thomas use a hook that forgivably sounds like it’s straight out of You Handsome Man by the Smiths. Yet Baby Champagne is no mere assimilation of sound, and it’s pretty evident how they came to their band name for their chaotically explosive instrumental arrangements. Baby Champagne shifts between sweet succinct harmonies to splintering cacophonies, reminiscent to bands such as The Stokes, Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster & Super Furry Animals.
