Citizen Gomez, The National Pep's first EP, is crammed full of exuberant pop melodies and relentless cultural references backed by vibraphone and organ. If Syd Barret was in Queen, if Smiley Smile rather than Pepper had revolutionised music, if Ogden Nash had written lyrics for the Lovin' Spoonful, these are things you can think about when you listen to the National Pep's Citizen Gomez. The EP consists of four songs: Think Carefully For Victory - A very electric pop-rock song (the only song on the EP that has prominent guitar), with a country-waltz chorus. This song is is currently on it's fourth set of lyrics. When asked what the current set of lyrics were about, Tilt replied 'Pay close attention to the lyrics. They contain the secrets of success. There's also some stuff in there explaining why I personally am not a success, but I have better things to do than take my own advice.' Wishing Well is a song. Olsen wrote it, and we've been unable to get a description out of him. It's a waltz. Wagons West Olsen's had the tune for this for six years, and Tilt added words about an epiphany in a theme park and a case of mistaken nationality at a party. Fate Vs. The Impossible! - the newest song on the EP and, like Wishing Well, one that will only be on the EP. Tilt takes lead on a 'condensed opera' that is equal parts Man of La Mancha and How To Speak Hip, as performed by Queen and produced by Joe Meek. Or not.
