Wallpaper’s core members met in middle school, and On the Chewing Gum Ground represents much of their adult work over the past four years. Hailing from Auburn, Washington – a place just close enough to the ocean to make weekend trips and understand what the Beach Boys are about – they mix 50s rebel rock and 60s surf mixed with the crucial wave of 80s underground music. The strength and allure of the album comes in the juxtaposition of pop sensibilities with lyrics sung like a sliding shimmy but written with a call for a pop-cultural reform.
Wallpaper begin and end their debut album On the Chewing Gum Ground with songs that cite the sacred institution of rock & roll in their titles, and these guys are clearly musical purists in their own way - while the rhythms are just a bit fractured and the melodies often skeletal, they embrace the classic Power Trio format of guitar/bass/drums with. the fervor of true believers, and Derek Kelley's lead vocals show a degree of swagger and snazz that would generally only appear on a K Records release in ironic form.
