CD Reviews

Classy New Wave for the arty set
Roscoe C. Pernwickle | Morgan Hill, CA USA | 10/11/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have never known the existance of this band until a little over a week ago. Ironically, the first time I heard them was on Netscape Internet Radio on the '80s channel! Intriguing New Wave pop rock in the same vein (and some of the same members) as Adam and the Ants. Fans of the Ants as well as Morrisey/Smiths, The Stranglers, the Church, XTC and other mopey-yet-quircky 80s brit punk-pop acts would like this. Not to mention fans of the new school should enjoy this as well, where many a chord and beat from this great group reminds me so much of the Magnetic Fields or Pulp at their best. As a relative newbie to this band, I highly recommend."
