Flower Girl, “Nightmare”

Post Author:
Flower Girl

Twangy garage-rocksters Flower Girl has a split LP––fittingly titled Live In the Basement––with DC’s own Doozies coming out within the next few weeks, but, before we get ahead of ourselves, they’ve released some singles.

A fun, little pop-ditty, Flower Girl’s “Nightmare” is like one of those bite-sized Three Musketeers bars—you eat nine of before feeling like a walking, talking piece of shit––except this song (thankfully) lacks that hangover. It conjures up a simpler time when rock’n’roll was still in its potty-training pants and every song was about a girl named Peggy Sue. But here, 60 odd years later, the only thing that’s changed is that Peggy Sue has become a nightmare. It happens.
