This long-standing beat/garage/psych unit from some country where they issue funny website addresses never truly connected with me; much like pretty much everything else on the Dionysus label, they always seemed like a slightly sterilized version of something that was supposed to be intrinsically rawer and cooler. Be that as it may, the band seems to have “progressed”—arguably for the better (gasp!)—mutating/evolving into something more akin to some of the less-horrible quote-college-rock-unquote units from the Southern Hemisphere ca. 1985 (Hoodoo Gurus… uh… shit, that’s all i can think of right now), and not at all un-Bigtime Records-ish, if you follow (and even if you don’t). What this means to the layman is that, although i still am not enervated in any meaningful way by this band, i am now somewhat more interested in the ways and means of how they go about not enervating me. BEST SONG: “It’s Not True” BEST SONG TITLE: “Your Stuff” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Band uses a Vox amp. Goodness.
