Definitely different and, as others have said, a bit ramshackle and unstructured. It's a mixture of madrigal singers, primary school recorder groups and the Buzzcocks. Along the way to the student ball it also meets up with Belle and Sebastian. It took me a few plays but taking it as a whole I love it. There are some great songs with lovely clean and almost naive harmonies like "Cookie O jesus" and "On Your Special Day" and some belters like "Itsuko Got Married". There are also one or two songs that are harmless and a bit weak - "Diagonal Girl" and the intro which is reminiscent of the worst "Yes" indulgences.
As a first cd this is great and shows lots of potential. I would like to hear a bit less ramshackle since I dont think they would suffer from a bit of tightening up. I'm looking forward to their next one and along with John Peel watching their progress.
