Album: Dum Dum Girls (2008)
  • Dum Dum Girls began as the bedroom recording project of lead singer and songwriter Dee Dee Penny in Los Angeles. This was Dee Dee's first single under the Dum Dum Girls moniker. Released as a 7" vinyl, on her own label, Zoo Music, in 2008, copies were limited to 500 with 75 being handwritten numbered by Dee Dee.
  • Dee Dee admitted to NME that she is no longer able to listen to this tune. She explained: "The first couple of songs I wrote for Dum Dum Girls, I tried to cram, like, 800 words into them, and I listen back and it's like why did I do half the stuff I did on that song? We still get shouts for this at shows from the fans. I feel bad for those guys for then not playing it, but no way!"
