Just as it could easily be said of pornography that dirty pictures aren't so much about sex as they are about masturbation, the songs that Dwayne and Jeff have produced for this LP aren't so much about making brilliant music as they are about singing and playing cheap guitars into suspect recording equipment and hoping, as a result, to get laid by their own wives.
"Competing with every A-side pressed in 1965 and every B-side considered too suggestive to be an A-side in 1967, the writing on Dwayne and Jeff's recent release, Cooties In Heavy Syrup, gives a hint as to what Brian Wilson's production might've sounded like if he was able to hear in stereo and just how much better Peter and Gordon would've been if the word 'fuck' wasn't considered too inappropriate for Murray the K. These guys are 40 years too late, and thank god! 40 years ago we would've missed them!"
-Ernie Shepard, Boy's Life Magazine
"Cleverly waiting until two Beatles are dead and until Jerry has replaced all four Pacemakers with an actual pacemaker, Dwayne & Jeff have recorded an album that can stand unrivaled in pop and substance! It's Josie and the Pussycats without the puss or pumps! Simon and Garfunkel never sounded this good, even when they were Chad and Jeremy!"
-Chad Stuart, of Chad & Jeremy
"Sexy music for girls who wear Chuck Taylors, no underpants, and glasses! It's Serge Gainsbourg without the language barrier!"
-Dwayne, of Dwayne & Jeff
"Music with balls, that tender and that vulnerable and that bouncy. These boys are quite a pair!"
-Winnie LaDouche, Highlights Magazine
"Not quite bubblegum, more like your first tentative step into some of the more abusive substances. Very seductive stuff with a lot of beat and soul."
