Wow. Både at hænge ud med Ramones og blive anmeldt af Robert Christgau. Så var deres USA-tur alligevel ikke helt forgæves!

Gasolin' [Epic, 1976]
This wonderfully improbable record may signal a new movement--here comes the Copenhagen Sound. Would it were true. The LP compiles the best material from three Danish albums--which means not only released in Denmark but sung in the native language of that funky land, with translations provided in part by an Epic PR man who deserves a new job. Gasolin's music miraculously overwhelms the musicianship and symphonic textures of Yurrupean technopomp with the raucous good humor of genuine rock and roll, and their epithet for the U.S.--"the redskin land," they call it--should make any American chauvinist swell with irony.
