A wonderful title from a good band who've been taken under the protective arm of Mylon LeFevre since they arrived without contacts or money in the States a couple of years back. Their debut album (available here via Kingsway/Refuge) was a refreshing new wave tinged set with enough energy for at least one pundit to predict that these guys could be the "new 77s". It seems less likely now. Despite a great title, the songs here are often shallow, their attempts to inject a lick or two of heavy into their sound flounder and their happy-go-lucky neo-punk sound sometimes gets downright irritating. A good band who need to do a bit of sorting.
