Editors’ Notes

Hoodoo Gurus’ barnstorming debut album updates sunny ’60s pop for the ’80s. It also veers into screaming primitivism and chugging power pop, with Dave Faulkner brandishing a Kinksy snide quality. Such mood swings are key: The South Pacific-set “Leilani” and the creature-feature menace of “Dig It Up” both play up the band’s kitschy side, but “My Girl” goes the opposite way with its sweetly chiming heartache. These songs make a point of flexing their outsized range without sacrificing the band’s inherent cheekiness.

Customer Reviews

All Hoodoo Albums are measured by this one!

I first heard this album as the soundtrack to "Beyond Blazing Boards" the surf video. I was hooked immediately and have bought and re-bought this album no less than 10 times because someone has always snaked it from me. Top to bottom this album is great. Every song has hooks and bridges in it that will have you chiming along after the first play. "Leilani" is probably the most popular and I'd agree it's great but not to be missed is "Let's all Turn On", "I want you back", "Zanzibar", "In the Echo Chamber" and "I was a kamikaze pilot". Don't nit pick here - download the whole album.

Best ta do the Hoodoo

My Girl, Zanzibar... the album is full of great 80's music! Agree with the reviews that this the best Gurus album. Good start to trying this group out.

the great guru's

This album one of my top 5. Leilani- awesome and hilarious. Try keeping tojo out of your head, or lip sinc'ing -lets all turn on-. Great stuff by the boys, just wish I would have been old enough to see them live in the states.

Like most bands, Australia's Hoodoo Gurus were largely the product of their influences; unlike most bands, however, the Hoodoos channeled their inspiration from the vast entirety of the American pop cultural landscape, drawing on such disparate sources as B-movies, bad sitcoms, and junk food -- in tandem with the usual suspects like garage rock, power pop, and surf -- to create a distinctly kitschy and catchy sound. Formed in Sydney in 1981, Le Hoodoo Gurus (as they were originally dubbed) were led...
