Reviewed by Alex Figgis

The early '90s celebrated an influx of modern pop/rock 'punk' bands into the Christian music scene. Pep Squad, with its raw intensity of pop/rock, fits neatly within the genre. With a compelling Pixies feel to their music. Pep Squad offer yet another welcomed alternative to the entourage of squeaky clean productions that have bombarded the music scene on the macro level; 'No Doy' is raw and in your face. Produced by Chris Colbert, the album was recorded at the famous Green Room, owned by legendary 'alternative music maestro' Gene Eugine (Adam Again/The Lost Dogs). In spite of all the welcomed trade marks - well produced, arranged and deftly executed - the message of 'No Doy' is somewhat of a mystery. In this case, the album's cover stands as a clue lo what lies within: obscure!
