Over here in the U of K (that didn't really work, did it?) Let me start over. Here in the United Kingdom, getting a hold of a Polysics album is thirsty work, but Hey Bob My Friend can be purchased for fewer than ten of our UK pounds. Yes, that's correct! Not, twenty or thirty; ten! The mere thought could send any well-travelled gentleman of her royal majesty's dominion into an uncontrollable miasma of happiness, foaming at the mouth and singing the 'Meow' chorus of Electric Surfing Go Go wherever he may be standing at the time. Well, okay, maybe that was a slight hyperbole but it's still fairly exciting stuff.
`Nice', `Plus Chicker' and `Pike' are the strongest tracks to my ears, but tastes differ greatly from one Polysics nut to the other. The photos, lyrics and what-have-you sleeve is wonderfully illustrated with all kinds of bizarre polysics doodles.
An excellent purchase!
