This is a lot better than song titles like ‘Stepped in Shit’ and ‘Pissed Myself Twice’ might have you believe. ‘Flushing Problems’ (....yeah, I know) comes across a little like a punkier take on Devo’s jerky music or at other points a grittier man Bis. Its full of robotic rhythms and twitchy guitars culminating in a great three note synth outro which recalls Leeds own Cowtown. Excellent stuff.

The afore-mentioned ‘I Pissed Myself’ is pretty rubbish but they make up for it with ‘Frans Drescher’s Alien Abduction’ which belts along at breakneck speed with fizzing guitars and those one finger fuzzy synth stabs. ‘Bad Day’ rattles along with a repetitive propulsive riff before bursting into ‘Daylight Robbery’ a fantastic almost singalong chorus. Therein lies the bands main trick. Their songs often appear to be going nowhere in a vaguely Devo manner before busting into tremendous choruses that usually extend into outro’s mostly led by a wandering synth melody.

Its quite an appealing habit that they have got themselves into and there are some incredibly catchy moments here. ‘Tinnitus’ bursts with strong melody  and invention and just to prove they aren’t all whiplash jerk pop they slow things down on the plaintive chiming ‘Hate this Town‘.
