Apparently this is Jay Reatard's old band! The sleeves are pretty cool, too...they're screenprinted to look like photocopies! Points for effort right there. This ain't no scrappy recording either. It's actually really well produced and raucous post-punk with keyboards and slicing trebly guitars and simple pulsing bass and careful pacing that belies the abandon of the delivery. Whoever's remastered these has done a great job, it reminds me of the scratchy intensity and super-loud polish of that legendary Raw Power remaster where everything just got pushed into the red, but obviously as a band they sound nothing like the Stooges, instead falling closer to the rip-roaring unhinged party punk of the Dwarves crossed with the completely insane post-new-wave synth punk of the likes of The Phantom Limbs or maybe The Apes. These are totally cool and inventive and ferocious punk songs and even if Reatard hadn't gone on to fame and later tragic infamy this platter would still be worth grabbing.
