Nice example of noise pop, influenced by Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. I like it

(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Shot Forth Self Living (Audio CD)
I got this album back in the days on the basis that I was buying a lot of indie/drone/noise and it was of a similar vein, but new in that it touched both on Loop, Sonic Youth with a bit of dance/electronica thrown in.

Some of it lapses into predictable but pleasant indie-droneish guitar stuff, and the closer 'Christmas Song' is in my view unlistenable to, but the opening track 'One More' is a stunning example of what could be achieved once these bands ignored any agreed limits, with a long white-noise intro giving way to a creeping drumbeat and then such a thick wah-wah laden wall of guitar sound it could hold up a building. A seemingly dispassionate vocal, which i've always assumed is ironic rather than serious, adds to one of the great slab-of-sound tracks produced in that era, along with Spacemen Three's 'Suicide' and Loop's 'Be Here Now'.

Other great tracks are the singles 'Five' and 'Aruca', the latter of which is a great indie-dance track which really should have done better.
