To say Ramrock HQ is on a roll at the moment would be somewhat of an understatement as we find that they've gone for a re-work of a favourite of the Balaeric white isle from 2018.

Did someone say, "white"? Well that's a bit of a misnomer as 77:78's origins are in The Bees from the Isle Of Wight!

Originally as side project The Bees members, Aaron Fletcher and Tim Parkin, 'Love Said (Let's Go)' was released on their album 'Jellies' on the Heavenly label and the remix was picked up by Ashley Beedle (who'd worked with Heavenly on many a remix including Edwyn Colins) and The Flying Mojito Bros got 'Chilli'; who themselves were an obvious choice with their love of 1960s country/psychedelic rock (and now they're heavily invovled wiht James Alexander Bright, see review HERE).

Anyway, back to the Wallace (Jo) and Morris (Darren) rework; prepare yourself, they've out remixed Beedle in this instance!  It's a shimmering version that touches the Zombies, "She's Not There', the keys are like the sunny side of The Doors, Hank's twanging guitar in the hillside with flirtations with Hong Kong Kung Fu OST all on a island beach.  

And these guys are so good, they've included the instrumental version.

It's No. 1 in my YATM Chart for May [on JUNODOWNLOAD] and I suspect it might be there for a while, unless Ramrock release anything else in the near future [Ed. Spoiler alert: yes they are!]
