Chicago's Smith Westerns were the 1000th nostalgic band to rediscover the sprightly bubblegum pop of the 1960s. Smith Westerns (HoZac, 2009), heavily influenced by T.Rex (Girl in Love) and occasionally virulent like in the garage-rock of the 1960s (My Heart).

Dye It Blonde (Fat Possum, 2011), a much more professional effort, caused sensation but there was even less that did not simply mock the 1960s. Ranging from imitations of the most moronic Beatles (Weekend) to juvenile anthems a` la Mott The Hoople (All Die Young), the collection avoided mediocrity only in the summery rave-up a` la Katrina And The Waves of Dance Away. They would have been a minor band in the "Paisley Underground" of Los Angeles in the 1980s.
