In between making 2 of the best/ most important etc albums of the 90s, they were profilic boyos & put out this 12" 4 song beast. Visually, it's a "cover of a cover" as they say on the back, some obscuro 70s progrock type thing which they've scribbled to death over & when they wrote their own lyrics out they covered them up too, rendering them unreadable, maybe 1 of many REM homages. more importantly[?], musically, it opens w/ an outstanding squall of distortion that you almost question whether it's on the right speed before figuring no it's not. Lyrically I most like Lions, w/ its dismissal of modern suburban as boring & empty: "every street a straight line, every building same height". I also think the cover might make a bit of witty phallic boasting banter, figure that out for yrselves. overall a pretty good addition to the shelf.
