Two little titles did very big things for Mint Records in
1992: Cub and Betti-Cola. NOBODY expected this album
to do what it did make Cub a college radio smash, a
touring sensation, and sell a whole slew of records for a
very surprised and, back then, tiny and dumb record label.
Features Neko Case on drums.

"What could be better than a fun, energetic, Canadian pop-punk girl group? If only that girl group were still together.Nonetheless, the girls of Cub left a great legacy behind - a reputation as the "fun group" that never failed to deliver an entertaining, upbeat, spirited live show.Their albums are no different. For a new Cub fan, Betti-Cola is perhaps the best place to start - a smattering of 24 energized pop songs, sung by the forever-cute Lisa Marr. It's nearly impossible not to love such sunny gems as "My Chinchilla", "Little Star" and the perky cover of the Beach Boys' classic "Surfer Girl." If you love it as much as you should, be sure to check out their other albums - Box of Hair, Come Out Come Out and Mauler. You won't be disappointed.But be forewarned: bad moods must be checked at the door. It's hard to have this much fun with a frown on your face."
Excellent first effort, but not their best album

"This collection of Cub songs, while great, doesn't quite stand up to their later releases. The production isn't very good, with the vocals buried in the mix and everything lacking high-end definition. The songs tend to be on the short side, which reminds of early They Might Be Giants. Still, the songs are well written and the simple guitar-drums-bass setup works well for them. The guitar is more often done without any effects at all, and the singing is a bit off-key at times, but this doesn't detract from the songs.If you're a Cub fan, you should get this album, but if you haven't heard them before, you should get their later releases."
