I just love it when an oddball group does an obscure oddball cover. It's like oddball squared. To some, the 5678s may not seem like an oddball band, but, c'mon, a Japanese all-women trio that plays surfish garagy rockawhatever in dresses, heels and beehive up-dos that would make Ronnie Spector proud? That might be your cup of tea, as it is mine, but you'd have to agree that it is rather odd in that you don't see a lot of Japanese women in dresses, heels and beehive updos that would make Ronnie Spector proud doing it. The Rock-A-Teens, the band that originally recorded "Woo Hoo", get the credit for the tune and its brilliant lyrics.
