This is a brilliant collection of every single and compilation that California workaholics Thee Oh Sees (there's a high chace you know them as something different, having had seven other names since they started in 1997) have ever put out. It's very lo-fi in places but really thrilling and organic. If you've ever listened to anything from the wide spectrum of guitar music then there's something in here for you.

Right. without a doubt these guys (& gal) are one of the most exciting, wired, bad-ass bands on the planet right now. I've seen them live & was loads more ecstatic & sweaty by the end of their set than a man my age has any right to be! True heirs to many rock thrones, they delight in throwing around genres till they reach a bruised, battered dazed hybrid of lo-fi scuzz, feral garage, whacked-out psych & deranged surf rock. Dwyer and co. make thrilling music that demands to be played fucking loud & proud and unlike many modern Garage bands they don't merely peddle pale re-treads of past classics, they're re-writing the rule book as they go, inspiring 1000s of devoted followers & influencing countless new bands. If you've heard any of the studio albums & think they're yummier than a freshly baked caramel & vanilla cheesecake with green & blacks chocolate flakes grated on top like I do then why the fuck are you still reading this stupid wittering review when you could be adding this wonderful singles round-up to your cart? Go on, bugger off and get loaded on this intoxicating brand of super-rock, never mind what I think - it's really not important. My big record of the week by a mile!!
