Los Angeles' Wondermints
(guitarists and vocalists Darian Sahanaja and Nick Walusko,
drummer Mike D'Amico and bassist Brian Kassan)
follow in the footspets of the
slightly baroque pop sound of later Beach Boys and Big Star.
Wondermints (Toy's Factory, 1995), that collects the best of their
three cassettes, easily beats most Brit-pop releases
of that year.
Tracy Hide, Proto-Pretty, She Opens Heaven's Door,
Shine would be masterpieces on any pop album of the 1960s.
The comic Global Village Idiot and the sophisticated
Fleur De Lis mark a territory that extends well beyond the obvious.
Wonderful World of Wondermints (Toy's Factory, 1996), an album of
covers, and the film theme Austin Powers (1997)
contributed to turn the band into stars.
Bali (EMI, 1998) is a more sophisticated affair:
Chris-Craft No.10 and Arnaldo Said repeat the magic of the
first album but add spicey arrangements.
Chewy Marble (1997) is the new project of former Wondermints
