Around for a while but finally out with vinyl, this highly eclectic band debuts their sounds: post-punk, industrial, folk-punk, and more. Following in the footsteps of TOILING MIDGETS, SLEEPERS and even FLIPPER, you'll find musicianship and intelligence at work here. Comes with booklet.
-Tim Yohannan (from Maximum Rocknroll #33, February 1986)
The band broke up a few years ago, but thi energetically passionate album is still available. This is a chip of the artistic underground in the Bay Area, communicating a general feeling of social unrest through lyrics as others do through graphics (which are also present here) or cryptic stores. The minor-key foreboding rock here blends well with the anti-giantism lyrics in the enclosed booklet of thoughts. Socially responsible but worth a listen anyhow.
-Mike Gunderloy (from Factsheet Five #24, November 1987)
