"If you ever watched the old Kids in the Hall show, the theme song was written by these guys. It's on this album known as "Having an Average Weekend". Savvy Show Stoppers is a great collection of surf guitar instrumentals all in the spirit of "Having an Average Weekend.Orginal rhythms permeate the album, but there isn't a lot variation on the songs. They're all about the same pace. Think of this as a surf guitar jam album. It's just the band jamming away on slightly different rhythms. Somehow it doesn't detract from the album's appeal though."
Great cd for an AVERAGE WEEKEND!

"I love this band, I thought Dim THe Lights was better. If your looking for The Kids In The Hall theme (Average Weekend), its here."
Next best thing to the actual 7" releases.

"I'd been putting off buying this album (a compilation of Canadian releases by the Men in the mid-to-late '80s) for a good long while when, in February 2000, I learned of the death of bassist Reid Diamond. I snapped it up without further hesitation. This disc is a more-than-worthwhile cross-section of the work it represents; anybody familiar with the Kids in the Hall will, naturally, recognise "Having an Average Weekend" as the best TV theme this side of, well, "Theme from TV" (track 3), and, (not that anyone deliberately seeking it out would know where to look,) new recruits might recognise "Zombie Compromise" from the recent barrage of goofy Taco Bell commercials. Also notable are the breezy cover of "Misty" and the track a friend of mine includes on every mix tape, "You Spin Me Round '86." The rest of the tracks, without exception, are distinct and driven. A good investment, and still a breath of fresh air 12 years after its release."
