It's got all the right ingredients, long hair, a goatee, hoarse throats and loud guitars. Between the songs there are funny bits which are actually funny. Better still it is far from the usual Christian imitation of whatever's current hip - in this case slightly indieish grungy metal. No, there's an authentic sweaty smell to it - this is the real stuff made by people who know what they're doing. So far, so good. But now the bad news. It's poorly recorded and the vocals suffer especially. Also the great strength of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins etc is strong tunes which Not don't have particularly. My spies tell me they're good live and I can believe it. Hopefully they'll sell enough of this that way to spend a bit more on recording next time. Till then not brilliant, not awful but something in between.
