On her last solo album, 2010's critically acclaimed I Came Here To Blow Minds, Wendy James recorded with French indie musicians who shared her passion for NYC punk, Detroit garage and new wave, but now she's going straight to the source. Working directly with The Stooges' James Williamson (guitar & bass) and The Bad Seeds' Jim Sclavunos (drums & percussion) the former Transvision Vamp lead singer has created two stunning tracks on her new double-single that capture the urgency and spirit of not only early punk but rock'n'roll in general.

The A-Side is a version of Sonic's Rendezvous Band's "You're So Great," where Wiliamson's signature search-and-destroy guitar riffs retain the gasoline-soaked essence of Fred 'Sonic' Smith's original, yet the song is transformed into a high-energy slice of modern power-pop with Wendy's boyant and soaring vocals throughout the track. The B-Side finds the trio digging deep into Bob Dylan's vast canon with their own snaky and seductive take on "It's Alright Ma."
