CD Reviews

Great New Wave! (if only short lived)
D. G. Word | the Edge of Texas | 10/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember hearing "switchin' to glide" while playing (and just getting good at it) ASTEROIDS at the local arcade. I was trying to finish college (on the 7 year plan) and had stopped by the arcade to play and have a beer; when in the middle of a game this song came on and it was all I could do to finish and simultaneosly listen to this incredible song. This ended up being a favorite favorite group of mine and until now I only had a cassette I'd recorded to listen to. GET IT, BUY IT NOW. If you like party music a la Joe King Carrasco, you'll really get off on this."
